To be more precise, the hearing was designed from the beginning to be a TikTok "struggle session" with the presumption of guilt, a trumped-up charge, and judgment before trial in which no evidence was presented, nor was TikTok given the time or opportunity to prove itself.
As Australia is a sovereign power, China hopes that Australia will not succumb to any country or become a military pawn. It is believed that the Albanese administration has sufficient political wisdom to make decisions in line with its national ...
Democrats, Republicans, the military and foreign policy establishments, and growing sections of business, are singing from the same anti-China hymn sheet.
We still are in a process where a dominant role of the US is the reality, but that's not sustainable. And we could start with the Chinese idea of "a shared future." But we have to think of what kind ...
The issue of Xinjiang is not a war of words, but about the fundamental principles of being human, about fairness and justice, and about the unfettered development of a country.
The "mutual love" between Chinese tourists and Thailand has been a source of vitality for the tourism industry in both countries and an important foundation for people-to-people exchanges.
We are in a very dangerous international situation. I think the most important thing is that the changes we will face are peaceful and that we don't go into a big war between NATO and Russia or even NATO and China. This is my most important message.
It is good for a country to have its participants be active contributors to it. It becomes a win-win situation. This will be the focus of the not-for-profit foundation which I have started in Australia.
China's cooperation with both sides actually makes it even more dependable in terms of brokering a compromise, and that was fully demonstrated in the recent diplomatic breakthrough between Iran and Saudi Arabia.
The international community needs to increase its moral condemnation of such behavior, which is not a matter of geopolitics but of basic humanity and morality.
China did not make the US' popularity decline, the US made itself decline.
It is very important for us Russians, because we understand that the present model of development, which was imported from the West, and its liberal capital is actually inefficient. And we should change the direction of our development and where it will go.
These days, it is much easier to be pessimistic about the future than to be optimistic about it. Still, one should not forget that the darkest hour is just before dawn. This might be the most important takeaway from President Xi's visit to Moscow.
Is Kishida hoping to show the world a country pursuing peace or a nation seeking military build-up?
Why is TikTok so popular in China? Of course, technology is paramount. But its rise is not a coincidence, especially in the form of short videos and live streaming with goods.
China's enormous contribution to world peace and stability will continue to be proven in diplomatic practices. President Xi's trip of peace has won wide support and applause from the world, which is the most powerful proof.
In short, Kishida's visit to Ukraine aims to show his personal adventurous spirit to the public, in an attempt to stimulate his cabinet's approval rating via an "unexpected" diplomatic move, thereby consolidating the foundations of his administration.
Given what has happened and is taking place in the US, the country is not qualified to be the global leader in democracy and the so-called Summit for Democracy is doomed to be fruitless.
Beneath human rights is hegemony
This lose-lose "trade war" has been dragging on for five years and should have ended long ago.
AUKUS dramatizes this desperation in defense of unipolar, white supremacy. Leaning on the internal hierarchy of the Western alliance, it summons forth the white among the white. It is clear where ASEAN's future lies.
These foundations require rethinking, improvement, and filling with new content that is adequate to the challenges of the time.
Against the backdrop of the world's turbulence, China and Russia have charted a way to coexist as friendly neighbors and major powers with strategic mutual trust, setting a new paradigm for the relationship between major powers and bringing all-round inspiration to the world.
After all, Hiroshima's history proves that those who provoked a war would get its punishment. In the current era, will Japan continue to create chaos in the Asia-Pacific region?
To this end, Xi's visit to Russia is expected to boost all-around cooperation.
The 20th anniversary of the Iraq War: Lies and war created by the US continue to harm the world.
It was well-known that the real objectives of the Iraq War were not weapons of mass destruction, but permanent military bases in Iraq, oil, and Israel.
As the only Asian member, Japan not only fails to speak for Asia, but also serves as a bridgehead for external interference in Asian affairs. This also proves the abnormality of Japan's diplomacy.
The reason Washington has proposed guardrails is that it understands the disastrous consequences of moving the US and China toward conflict.
New tricks the US is using to limit China
In reality, the relations between China and Russia are not exceptional. They represent a normal mode of partnership between states that can become the basis for a more stable international order.
In recent years, Chinese diplomacy in the Middle East has shown its vision and wisdom and thus seen breakthroughs. However, it must be soberly recognized that the coexistence of stability and chaos is the basic feature and pattern of political development in the Middle East.
Bettina Stark-Watzinger, German federal minister for education and research, is reportedly scheduled to visit Taiwan island next week, the first cabinet-level German official visit to the island in 26 years.
The tragedy of the military challenge issued to Russia by US now seems to be repeating itself vis-à-vis China in the form of a dangerous farce. US is trying everything to push Germany & Japan right to the fore, writes German MP Sevim Dagdelen
The US is seeking to expand military presence in the Philippines and put the Philippines on the frontline of US' anti-China campaign. What consequences will this move bring to the Asia-Pacific region? What the Philippines can do to avoid being a pawn of the US? Anna Malindog-Uy (Anna), senior research fellow of Global Governance Institution, and vice president of External Affairs of the Asian Century Philippines Strategic Studies Institute, shared her views with Global Times (GT) reporter Wang Zixuan over these issues.
China-Russia relations have withstood the test of international turbulence and remained calm and clear-headed, always advancing in a steadfast manner and in a direction that benefits the peoples of both countries and the world.
It's idiotic, yes, and idiocy is not evidence. And neither is xenophobia.
It's not just Treasury bonds that are faulty either, with the US real estate market presenting a major unrealized challenge.
The world does not need hatred, division or conflict, and the people of all countries want to live a good life.
China has made remarkable achievements in building law-based cyberspace, contributing Chinese wisdom and solutions to internet governance worldwide.
The US government has threatened to ban TikTok in the US unless its Chinese owners divest their stakes in it.
Why did the mainstream media in the US largely remain silent on Hersh's article? Are the NYT revelations credible? Who is the culprit for the Nord Stream pipeline attack?
Xizang is a unique but normal human society, not a museum showing Tibetan barbaric and backward serfdom culture. A socialist China is people-centered, and all ethnic groups will be truly respected and protected.
A farcical balloon scandal has further soured US-China relations. In late January 2023, the Biden administration and the US mainstream media spent a full week spreading fear about an alleged "Chinese spy balloon" flying over the US mainland. Chinese officials urged calm from the US and explained that the balloon in question was an unmanned meteorological aircraft that had been blown off course by heavy winds. On February 4t 2023, US President Joe Biden ordered the Pentagon to shoot down the balloon, costing $2 million.
For quite some time, though styling themselves as champions of human rights, some Western countries have already given away their true proclivity for cherry-picking when it comes to human rights.
An article in the New York Times titled China Helped Raise My American Kids, and They Turned Out Fine by an American mother may partially explain why an increasing number of expat families are choosing Chinese schools for their children, given that more and more people from Western countries have been enjoying working and living in China as the country deepens its opening-up.
Peace is so fragile, and crisis management is important, but reducing its occurrence from the root is even more critical.
The US can no longer stop the remaining “diplomatic allies” of the Taiwan island from thinking what the trend of the times is and which way is on the right side of history.
"It's really strange for Australia to agree with the US that China is our potential enemy when it's also our biggest trading partner."
Australia pays own money to serve the US' Indo-Pacific Strategy.
A long way is ahead before a new chapter in Japan-Korea relations.
The two arch-rivals of the Middle East - Saudi Arabia and Iran - recently sat down for peace talks in Beijing and restored diplomatic relations, highlighting the effectiveness of China's diplomatic efforts. Why can China act as the "peace broker?"
Australia's inexplicable sense of insecurity when facing China is basically the result of being spiritually controlled for many years by the US.
The appearance of the US as a human rights defender does not correspond to reality.
India controls Bhutan's security and economic lifelines, which enables it to interfere in Bhutan's internal affairs and foreign policy.
"I have full confidence in the new government. They understand both China and the world."
The UK still thinks it is a global empire, but its emperor has no clothes. There is no prosperity, good fortune or progress that will await the UK on its current trajectory.
A China that is not afraid of difficulties and struggles in unity has embarked on a new journey toward the grand goal of “building a great country and advancing national rejuvenation.”
How the SVB collapse explains the US economy
When China sits down with friends, it is for peace. When the US and its partners get together, the agenda is about confrontation.
China has accomplished its modernization by carrying it on the country's shoulders and projecting important benefits to others. Western modernization has largely been carried on the shoulders of others & projected sacrifices and exclusion onto them.
Regrettably, Britain has not chosen to embrace the radically changing world on the basis of cooperation and multilateralism.
The wedding custom, as a ritual lasting for thousands of years, is unlikely to be regulated by law. The ideal way is to relieve the worries of unmarried females through publicity and improve the social status of women.
The Hersh article was too embarrassing for the US. It took the New York Times one month to figure out how to react.
The diplomatic rationale of China is simple and clear. China adheres to the principle of peaceful development. It firmly pursues an independent foreign policy of peace.
We believe that achieving reconciliation through dialogue, and development through peace, will have a deeply profound influence and gain huge popularity in this era, and only victory for peace is a true victory.
I would advise that governments protest to Japan, make diplomatic protests, bring a case to the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea in every form they can, including in the General Assembly of the United Nations, as well as have a debate in Security Council, although the US is a veto as well as other countries such as France and the UK.
As a matter of fact, residential education is full of diversity, humanity and vitality in other parts of the world, including the Xizang Autonomous Region of China, which provides a favorable environment for many youngsters, and becomes the key to a brighter life.
The “multifaceted America” behind human rights scandals
The big bosses on Wall Street and the White House see the opportunity to make money from global conflicts, and the world sees the growing conflicts and rising risks of war. Can the US-designed "order" be maintained this way without any change?
Hopefully, we are going to be a beneficiary. It's not about China. It's a global initiative.
The recent Saudi-Iran agreement has come as a major surprise to most observers, but making the announcement and revealing its details from Beijing has been a bigger surprise.
Generals and admirals, both active duty and retired, are now turned to as the most coveted presidential advisors on foreign policy. Naturally, their cultural toolbox contains mostly hammers and most foreign policy challenges appear as nails.
The offensive of the US and its allies against Russia has increased awareness among Global South countries that it is necessary to strengthen the regional and global initiatives that are "not aligned" with Western hegemony.
Both Saudi Arabia and Iran have expressed gratitude to Beijing for its diplomatic efforts. This shows that China's peaceful diplomacy of upholding justice, facilitating peace and promoting talks has been widely recognized by the Middle East and international community.
The trilateral statement is a clear evidence of China's peaceful diplomacy beginning to exert influence in the world and a proof of China's strength being transformed into diplomatic soft power. China is a world-class power that is full of goodwill. It never harms other countries and is truly committed to win-win cooperation. Reaching this trilateral statement will definitely strengthen the impression and trust of many countries toward China. Successful mediation between Saudi Arabia and Iran will also enhance China's discourse power to promote peaceful settlement of the Ukraine crisis.
The unity and striving of more than 1.4 billion Chinese people belong not only to China but also to the world.
For almost a decade, I have been focusing on China's concern for its poorest citizens, and how, especially under President Xi Jinping's leadership, the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) has prioritized its overarching commitment to enhancing the standards of living — to improve the lives — of all sectors of the country's vast and diverse population, especially through the CPC's "targeted poverty alleviation campaign."
Riled up against China, GOP congress members have long felt that Washington's new cold war needed a special venue. So as soon as the baton passed to Republicans in the House, they set up a select committee on China. This is majority leader Kevin 'Trump's the Man' McCarthy's baby, and if it sounds to you like a forum for much grandstanding and frothing about the communist menace, the yellow peril and the need to beef up the FBI, CIA, DIA and NSA, so they can hunt down China's spies from the halls of government to the groves of academe — 'they're everywhere' supposedly — you may be onto something. I'm not sure what that something is, but it's a good bet it ends with United States navy aircraft carriers steaming toward Taiwan. In fact, a four-star general, Mike Minihan, said as much January 27. 'My gut tells me we will fight in 2025,' he wrote in a memo to his subordinates. In which case it's time to head for the hills — since every place else will be radioactive.
I do not believe that a group of Ukrainian freelancers bombed the Nord Stream, since it seems too convenient and hard to imagine that they would have the technical capabilities, says author of American Exception: Empire and the Deep State
Perhaps only after Ya Ya returns to China can this unexpected episode that is occurring against the backdrop of strained US-China relations come to an end, but the underlying issues it reflects, and the potential harm it will cause to the emotions of the Chinese and American peoples, are worthy of further reflection and discussion.
The unlimited greed of the US to continue expanding its military power at its peak should serve as a warning to us.
In the US, polls seem to have become a tool manipulated by its political elites to discredit China on the international stage. Such underhand practice is another manifestation of the US' hysteria toward China.
The US, by virtue of its super economic status, attempts to replace international law with its domestic rules. It once again exposes the hegemonic nature of the US in dealing with international relations.
The US military budget is aimed at global hegemony, but there are many factors in regional military games that cannot be replaced by global games.
The Chinese modernization is sustainable because it neither plunders other countries nor nature. In the past decade, an amazingly short period of time, China has led the world in reversing the inevitable historical consequences of industrialization.
Through the two sessions, international observers closely watch China's moves and recognize China's development and achievements.
We are living through a post-shame era of politics in the US. This shameful system will continue for as long as the people remain subjects of the parasitic oligarchy that has infected the US political, economic, and media systems.
As Australian media outlets up their game of drumming war drums against China, former Australian diplomats stressed China is not knocking at Australia's door to invade Australia; China provides economic opportunity and prosperity, while the US is offering death and destruction, at Global Times' Global Minds Roundtable on China-Australia Relations on Monday.
According to Yonhap News Agency on March 8, a senior Seoul official said that South Korea plans to "proactively accelerate" its participation in the Quad working group.
Who exactly is hurting the bilateral ties and even world peace by showing its sharp claws? In order to avoid having a misperception, we need to answer this question correctly.
Hyping the "Russia challenge" or "China threat" is never a panacea for the US' problems. It's a cry-wolf game that eventually destroys trust and leaves the shepherd helpless.
It is groundless for some external forces to hype up the so-called China's non-transparent military spending.
Uncle Sam is playing a game of lies regarding Tokyo's decision to dump nuclear-contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean.
The real threat confronting Australia is not China, but the US, which not only takes Australia as a front-line base, but also constantly pushes it toward wars. Australians do not need war; they need to sharpen their eyes.
In practice, in the West, it is an electoral democracy, but it does not run its government for the people. The US is officially classified by the economists now as a flawed democracy.
What the Chinese eat, how they eat it, and whether the meals on the table will become more diverse affects the US' economy and its high-tech competitiveness.
One has to admire China for its forbearance in seeking to maintain the bilateral relationship when Australia has been behaving like a petulant child, experts agreed at an online forum on China-Australia relations held by Global Times on Monday.
Sixty-four days into 2023, the US has already surpassed 100 mass shootings.
The game surrounding the Taiwan question is destined to become increasingly complex, and the intensity of the game will continue to rise.
On Tuesday, Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang answered questions from journalists both home and abroad about China's foreign policy and external relations. The foreign minister's press conference is one of the highlights of the two sessions every year.
The historical issues between South Korea and Japan have always been the crux of their relationship. In order to form a united front with Tokyo and Seoul against its rivals, Washington has repeatedly pressured South Korea to compromise with Japan.
We don't need to be economists to know that these indicators aren't leading to collapse. Western experts seem to comprise of wishful thinking designed to manipulate, rather than inform.
The two sessions are an important platform for the world to understand whole-process people's democracy.
Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang attends a press conference on China's foreign policy and foreign relations on the sidelines of the first session of the 14th National People's Congress today, and these are the points that impressed me most.
China's growing circle of friends is the result of a combination of its visionary leadership, commitment to multilateralism and win-win cooperation, as well as its growing global influence.
Private enterprises and foreign companies in China can be at ease, explore and develop the Chinese market without any concerns. And the rewards will be generous.
Is Africa the West's dumping ground?
From Huawei to TikTok, from balloons to cranes, American politicians' hysteria over so-called national security is becoming increasingly perverse.
By rekindling its continuity with the past, Chinese governance today also connects all Chinese people to the world in peace. This is an inestimable contribution to their common good and to the world.
Chinese companies urgently need to build systematic public goods to globalize and get out of the predicament of going solo.
China's development potential is in a stage of continuous release, far from being exhausted. It is necessary to ensure that the momentum of development is sufficient and powerful.
Unlike in Western countries, this will not mean a policy "U-turn." Instead, it will open a new chapter in a great relay race, where the next leg of the journey will continue with unrelenting effort.
Many Ohio residents suffer from headaches and other symptoms
China announced its annual defense budget for 2023 will increase by 7.2 percent, which is slightly higher than the expected growth rate of around 5 percent of GDP, but it is still considered moderate.
The US may have highly likely delivered this promise, as American investigative reporter Seymour Hersh dug out: the only suspect in Nord Stream sabotage is the US.
At a time when major global economies still have to cope with inflation in a nervous and hectic manner, a strongly recovering China with a low inflation will show the world the policy-control capabilities its government has and will give more confidence to those who are worried about the global economy.
What's interesting in the Chinese approach, be that in the development or security component, is the focus on shared interests, mutual respect, and comprehensive and sustained solutions.
Objectivity and truthful coverage are the lifeblood of media. Some Western media's false reporting has triggered dissatisfaction and indignation among the Chinese people. If certain Western media and individuals continue to prioritize ideology over truth, and engage in unscrupulous rumors, smears and attacks against China, this will inevitably accelerate the collapse of the Western media's credibility.
The spring of the year sets the tone for things that follow. We wish for a successful convening of the two sessions. At the same time, we have reason to look forward to this spring, where firm belief, vigorous strength, and a trail of progress will leave even more profound imprints than before.
The platforms ought to assume the responsibility and highlight the protection of the floating population.
The proposal of China's peace plan for Ukraine corresponds to the interests of the majority of humanity who want to avoid an escalation of a proxy war involving nuclear armed states and instead focus on building a peaceful and prosperous future.
At the opening ceremony of the G20 Foreign Ministers' Meeting, all participants observed a minute of silence for the victims of the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. This was a rare touch of warmth amid the growing division and intensifying confrontation. It shows that transcending differences and engaging in dialogue and cooperation are not only possible, but also have a deep root in international community. We hope that all parties can shoulder their responsibilities, demonstrate cooperation, and contribute to promoting global development and prosperity.
South Korea's diplomacy has always been swinging between getting close to its major neighbors and sticking closely to the US. The Moon Jae-in government was a driving force in easing tensions on the Korean Peninsula, while the current Yoon administration has shifted towards a different direction and resonated with the US Indo-Pacific strategy. "Pro-Japan" is just one of the manifestations of this big swing. Hopefully, South Korea can stay stable and not become a pawn of the US, as it should be one of the players in the complex chess game in Northeast Asia.
Politicians like Burns should understand that "pride and prejudice" toward China will only bring more danger and chaos to the region and the world. No matter how harsh they want to sound when talking about China and how assertive when talking about the US, they can never fool other countries by trying to sugarcoat US hegemony as "leadership."
In general, the Global Security Initiative initiative is very welcome and very timely, and I think that creative and active role of China is highly appreciated.
The balloon incident was ridiculous and stupid. The response was bizarre and laughable, but unfortunately, it's not a laughing matter because it drove more hate and more confusion. I mean, what it reveals is a level of stupidity among journalists and average readers in the US. How ridiculous was all of that? And to think that someone could call a weather balloon a "spy balloon" when China has numerous ways to look at the US, just as the US has numerous ways to look at China. The US just flew a plane over Taiwan.
Is US hyping China threat to cover up Ohio accident?
Japan's green hypocrisy,
In recent years, Washington has frequently threatened to punish others using the excuses of "threats" on the international stage. Now, the Nord Stream bombing has exposed the security loopholes facing human society. When it comes to this matter, the US and other Western countries, which have always held an attitude of "better to kill a thousand innocent people than let one truly guilty person go free" on security issues, should stop pretending cordiality. It should be noted that even if someone holds the microphone for a moment, they can never monopolize the truth forever.
Being an ally of the US is deadly.
Collusion between US and Taiwan island will only strengthen Chinese mainland's determination to curb Taiwan secessionist forces. The signals US sends over Taiwan question to boost DPP's morale will result in opposite effect.
People's support is the foundation of the country's most fundamental interests. For the ruling party, adhering to the position of the people, allowing the people to be the masters of the country, and letting the people live a happy life are the country's most fundamental interests. This also demonstrates the people-oriented logic of the CPC.
It's a tactic designed to weaken what our ruling class views as the enemy. We need to spend a lot more time on cooperation if we are going to maintain a spaceship earth that is livable, peaceful and sustainable for everyone, rather than just a tiny, incredibly rich group of human beings.
China's choice can only be to expand and open its consumer market further and support the outward flow of Chinese manufacturing and technology, at the same time, upgrading high-tech and manufacturing industries to create more new products and win a broader global market.
It's better to listen to China. While the situation is deadlocked, but there is still room for maneuver, negotiations should be carried out to end the war earlier for the benefit of everyone.
As we write this editorial, the hearing has not yet started, but we can roughly imagine what kind of scene it will be. From the "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq to the "White Helmets" in Syria, they are all produced on the same assembly line. Historical experience tells the world that no matter how many lies Washington spreads and how many humanitarian disasters it causes, its political elites and media may not even blush. Otherwise, how could this shameful political farce be staged one by one?
China has always advocated and practiced the principle of "seeking common ground while shelving differences," while promoting the building of a human community with a shared future. Obviously, China's global initiatives and spirit of cooperation are more in line with the G20 objectives and have more in common with India in terms of international cooperation. New Delhi can take this year's G20 summit as an opportunity to strengthen dialogue and cooperation with Beijing in the post-COVID era and jointly promote cooperation and development of the international community.
The US should recognize the reality and respect the common wish of countries in the South China Sea for peace, stability, and development. It should stop sowing discord, fanning the flames, engaging in all kinds of provocative military actions, and threatening the sovereignty and security of regional countries in any form and under any pretext. Instead of undermining regional rules and order, Washington needs to take actions genuinely beneficial to the region.
The Biden administration would be well-advised to become grounded in old-school diplomacy rather than chasing balloons in the sky because, left unchecked, the ongoing militarization of the US-Chinese relationship can only lead to disaster.
It was speculated that Washington's balloon frenzy earlier in February has a lot to do with covering up the scoop over what US did behind Nord Stream bombing. There is also reason to suspect the hype of TikTok is aimed at distracting people from Ohio derailment and chemical spill.
The US has a bad record on arbitrary detention.
The biggest obstacles to peace in Ukraine are the blinkers currently being worn by Western leaders. They need to have their eyes opened.
Exporting traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) will further enhance the influence of Chinese culture, said China's top traditional Chinese medicine experts at a forum held in Beijing on February 24.
We welcome President Lukashenko's visit to China, as well as all foreign friends who are committed to peace and development. A friendly and gentle China full of vitality and opportunities will naturally have a strong attractiveness, which is fundamentally different from some big powers that are deliberately seeking to forum cliques and alliances. China conforms to the trend of the times and definitely has an inexhaustible and powerful driving force.
Japan's dumping wastewater is a disaster of the world
When we move to matters of culture, philosophy, politics, and so on - what may be called the superstructure - the situation becomes more complicated. At this level, understanding and appreciating each other's cultures takes much patience and time. Of course, the situation is always complex and there are many "cross-winds" that can derail the process. But I for one hope that the return to a win-win approach at the economic base will lead over time to a renewed desire for greater cultural and philosophical understanding.
Over the past decade, we have achieved a lot in Russia-China relations. We have significantly increased the volume of trade in energy resources. We learned how to work together - with tough opposition from the Western world - on the platforms of international organizations in solving urgent world problems. But this is not enough. The world has changed. It is necessary to strengthen the ideological foundations and practical elements of this phenomenon of contemporary political culture. To such components I would include, first of all, science and technology, cross-border and military cooperation, space and deep-sea technologies. And, of course, we must work together, involving all interested parties, to build a concept of our common future, the very one that Chinese leader calls community with a shared future for mankind.
The US, with its current power and discourse strength, has been drawing in NATO and other allies with a Cold War mentality and inciting bloc confrontation in pursuit of its own interests. Such behaviors seriously hamper the world's development and runs contrary to the common interests of mankind.
China has also been able to achieve such great results thanks to its cooperation with other countries, including the one with US experts over giant panda's reproductive techniques. It is believed more people around the world will be able to witness giant pandas in the future, and people will continue to become fans of this animal. With the drumbeat of China's peaceful development, giant pandas will remain active on the global stage as cordial messengers.
Development is the eternal theme of human society and a just goal that can never be abandoned at any time. No country or organization can restore the world economy quickly on its own, it is a process of global cooperation.
What I would want from the Chinese media is don't let us be forgotten, because that is my biggest fear with the media and the US
US' words have become less persuasive, and the country is gradually isolating itself in the world. As Huntington argued, “In acting as if this were a unipolar world, the US is also becoming increasingly alone.” Sadly, this is the reality of today's US.
Tokyo is speeding up its plan to dump nuclear-contaminated water into the sea
If a country has lifted nearly 100 million people out of poverty, has over 1 billion internet users, provides its people with the safe social living environment and convenient infrastructure, then what reason is there to say that this country is "trampling on human rights?"
President Xi Jinping has repeatedly emphasised since 2017 that the world is undergoing profound changes unseen in a century. In July 2022, then state councillor and foreign minister Wang Yi noted that this perspective had been fully confirmed due to recent events. And the trend is deepening.
What this document shows is China's sincerity and goodwill in actively promoting peace talks.
Through Wang's trip, Beijing has sent a clear message of its serious intent for closer cooperation with Europe and Russia for a better and peaceful world – certainly a well-timed stroke by Beijing.
China is doing what it always does and the end result could hugely benefit innocent people caught up in this conflict, the military personnel dying in it and the millions of people affected by it. Perhaps it's time to pay more attention to the patterns.
Senior people should not be abandoned by new technologies.
The theme of peace and development requires serious reconsideration and readjustment by the society. It is now time for the international community to work together and press the stop button on this conflict.
Canada needs to meet China halfway to find out more shared values from cooperation - values that will make both countries feel more secure and prosperous.
A Japan that tampers with its history of aggression, a Japan that disrupts the international order, and a Japan that harms the homeland of mankind, will never be able to stand up with dignity.
America's widening wealth gap.
India and Australia obey and serve the US' Indo-Pacific Strategy, which tie themselves more tightly to the US anti-China chariot, risking them to lose diplomatic leeway on the global stage outside the US-led small circle.
NATO's dance of death.
Apples and bananas are both common fruits. But when poked with the question "Which one tastes better?", you are more likely to find it tricky to give a clear-cut answer. This is all natural! As apples and bananas contrast with each other in an obvious way, different people may have their own preferences. There is no single rule to apply.
Dear Matthew and Sophia, I am so glad to hear from you. Three difficult years have passed since you departed on that beauteous summer. I heard you have already embarked on a brand-new journey in university. Congratulations! It's so momentous a leap for us Chinese students, and I guess it also means a lot for you in America. Indeed, our nations have many things in common, as we both believe in the value of family bonds, patriotism, and so forth. However, in recent years, our countries have become unprecedentedly distanced. Against such a backdrop, it is reasonable that you have posed all those questions in your letter, and I'm more than willing to offer you my perspective. Let's chat like we used to do during the summer camp, where we met as campers and TA without finger-pointing.
What Tokyo needs is not a sense of formality, but a sincere and constructive attitude that can be felt by others. It emphasizes the importance of communication, but there is much more that Japan needs to explain and clarify to China.
China as a major power and responsible country within the UN Security Council has credibility when offering to achieve peace in the Middle East. In this region, the Palestinian question is the central issue for regional stability and development, said Palestinian Ambassador to China Fariz Mehdawi on Monday.
Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Joe Biden both delivered a speech regarding the ongoing conflict on Tuesday.
After the Chinese New Year, I went to South China's Guangdong, the largest province by GDP in China, and visited seven cities along the coast from Zhanjiang to Chaozhou. What attracted me most were the scenes of fireworks and incense.
The lesson that is clearly demonstrated by the Russia-Ukraine conflict is that the US is prepared to sacrifice a so-called ally in pursuit of its own interests, and its interests in Europe were twofold.
Since the very beginning of the Russia-Ukraine conflict a year ago, one of the prime goals of the West was to isolate Moscow in the international system. To achieve this goal, it was not good enough to sustain the newly acquired Western cohesion; the real challenge was to bring to the “right side of history” as many nations of the Global South as possible. If the West were to succeed in this undertaking, Russia would become a truly “pariah state.”
The international status of a country's media is determined by the strength of the country and its adherence to media ethics. The BBC has lost the latter, and the UK is losing the former.
Train derailment in Nebraska is the third in US in weeks
"This was a situation of extortion!" then Argentine Minister of Economy Axel Kicillof chided.
Western politicians turn grinding Ukraine War into a political show.
Security is a common concern for all mankind, and great powers should set an example.
On the day US President Joe Biden made a surprise visit to Kiev, a blast at an Ohio factory took place.
The world is becoming a riskier place. Over the past year, Western countries have been trying to persuade the global public to accept a point of view that it is Russia and the conflict in Ukraine that has caused the global turmoil – therefore, Russia is the initiator of all insecurity, and the West is the one that maintains global security and defeats evil. But is this really the case?
Biggest winner in the Ukraine Crisis
The pursuit of peace, security, and development are common desires of humanity. Unfortunately, it must be acknowledged that the global cyberspace still faces severe challenges and threats. This is mainly because of the irresponsible rogue hegemon, the United States. On the one hand, the US continues to abuse its technological advantages to implement unrestricted, uncontrolled, and boundaryless comprehensive surveillance worldwide. On the other, it hypocritically talks about the so-called rules-based liberal international order, distorts facts, and attempts to divide the global cyberspace in the name of constructing a new order based on shared values. It poisons and even blocks constructive pragmatic cooperation, dragging the global cyberspace back to the era of digital jungles monopolized by hegemonic power and its cliques.
US has huge profits to gain from Nord Stream sabotage.
In the face of an increasingly fragile and imbalanced international security situation, as two major powers neighboring each other, the healthy and stable development of bilateral relations is beneficial to world peace.
It was a miracle that China has scored a complete victory in its fight against poverty.
The past few decades have witnessed China increasingly integrated with the rest of the world. Embracing the advancement of globalization and opening its door wider and wider, China is now connected with each and every corner of the global village in the form of its quality products and services, enormous market and extensive trade and investment partnership.
Recently, there has been much controversy in India surrounding a BBC documentary known as “India: The Modi Question.” The documentary is a critic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's purported role in sectarian riots which struck the Indian state of Gujarat in 2002 between Muslims and Hindus, where more than 1000 people died. The program created outrage in India, which was denounced as “propaganda and anti-India garbage” that “reflects BBC's colonial mindset” by Kanchan Gupta, a minister in the information ministry. It was subsequently banned thereafter.
The Munich Security Conference (MSC) was held from Friday to Sunday. But it did not seem to have too much with collective security in the conventional meaning of the notion: In recent years, the West exploits the event to express its determination to defend its hegemony over world affairs. This time, representatives of the US and other Western countries have mainly spoken about their resolve to beat Russia. They made these statements just as unanimously as they hastily evacuated their embassies from Kiev a year ago. And they were as confident as they have been a few months before the US army fled Afghanistan in August 2021.
Wang Yi, member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and director of the Office of the Central Commission for Foreign Affairs, is paying a visit to Russia on Monday and Tuesday. Since the outbreak of the Ukraine crisis, both US media and politicians have increased their efforts in pushing sets of narrative against China-Russia relations.
The US, under the current corrupt political system and toxic political environment, will never be able to produce a similar drama that can resonate strongly with the public.
Pete Buttigieg blames Trump for Ohio train derailment amid criticism: 'We're constrained.'
Western military-industrial complex reaps huge wealth from the Ukraine Crisis.
There's a lot of suppression. Unlike many countries, the US claims to have freedom of speech. We claim you can say whatever you want, and that is your freedom. But it's not actually true. You really have to say what is a kind of a certain allowable mix. And if you don't, then they will cover up what's being said. Now luckily, I live in a country where I don't have to fear being arrested for saying these things. But we don't have the freedom of speech that we claim to have.
US balloons have repeatedly entered other countries' airspace. It is double standards to criticize Chinese balloons
NATO keeps talking about China, which only proves that it is the execution machine of US' will. This thwarts Europe's pursuit of strategic independence, and hijacks collective defense of Europe
US' abuse of force this time has set an extremely bad and dangerous precedent and intensified the entire global situation. Wang pointed out in Munich that What the US needs to do is demonstrate sincerity, and face up to and resolve the damage that this incident has brought to China-US relations. To be honest, it is not only the Chinese people who object to the US' practice; the whole world is concerned about a US like this. After all, missiles are not used for fun, and Washington's abuse of force will surely arouse the international community's vigilance.
The Russia-Ukraine conflict is approaching its one-year mark, with no end in sight. It is eating up scarce European resources, preventing millions of refugees from returning home and weakening the global economic outlook while the US and some European countries are fanning the flames of the war, keeping sending weapons to Ukraine. How will the Russia-Ukraine conflict end? What are the biggest stumbling blocks for negotiation and diplomatic resolution?
During the Munich Security Conference from Friday to Sunday, Russia-Ukraine conflict has been a main priority. But instead of doing anything helpful to resolve the Russia-Ukraine conflict peacefully, many leaders of Western countries made provocative remarks over Russia, making observers believe the forum is not staged for seeking security or peace.
According to Camp, the US mainstream media are creating an illusion of truth to the public regarding the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
After the dramatic reversal of the balloon incident, the Joe Biden administration tried to "cool down" the tension of China-US relationship. However, very recently, some US politicians and media outlets have once again begun to exaggerate the use of communication base stations equipped by Huawei near the ongoing Munich Security Conference (MSC), claiming that it has brought serious security risks.
Far from being the moment of pride that the Biden Administration is trying to spin it as, it's an embarrassment that never should have happened and only makes the US look worse than ever before.
Future China-Europe relations are bound to experience turbulence and uncertainties, but they should steer toward a better future.
Hopefully, everyone can truly live an elegant life in the real world, not the digital world.
