    Editor's Note: Amid the still ongoing Russia-Ukraine military conflict, NATO, which has been adding fuel to the conflict, started a three-day summit in Madrid, Spain, from June 28 to 30. The NATO alliance works to increase pressure on Russia over its conflict with Ukraine while underscoring their continued concerns about China. For the first time in history, leaders from four Asia-Pacific countries – namely Australia, Japan, South Korea, and New Zealand – were also invited to attend the NATO summit. The militant group which has already made troubles for Europe is now trying to create its own Asia-Pacific chapter to interfere in Asia. How did the organization come about? How was it born from the Cold War mentality and gradually became a poisoner of world peace? Why is this military alliance extending its “dark hand” to Asia? The Global Times will publish a series of four articles on how NATO is expanding. This is the first installment.

  • Witnessing the historic moments that secured world trade boom in past 20 years and the future

    Standing at the occasion of the 20th anniversary of China's accession to the WTO, the scene I witnessed in Doha, Qatar, replayed before my very eyes - at 23:39 Beijing time on November 10, 2001 in the Salva Conference Hall of the Sheraton Hotel Doha, when the members of the WTO adopted by unanimous consensus, the gavel fell lightly in the hands of Yussef Hussein Kamal, Chairperson of the Fourth WTO Ministerial Conference and then Minister of Finance, Economy and Trade of Qatar, marking the end of the 15-year process of China's negotiation for accession to the WTO.

  • GT Investigates: US cultivates pseudo-religious groups overseas, pumps support to terrorists to wreck its adversaries
