It is understandable that the radioactive wastewater has to be treated one way or the other eventually. But Japan hasn't done enough yet with all the possible means at hand.
Chinese authorities imposed an 18.23 billion yuan ($2.78 billion) fine on e-commerce mammoth, Alibaba, for its violation of the anti-monopoly law. I've read the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR)'s administrative punishment written decision and SAMR's administrative guidelines.
Black Americans are still in an unfair situation in the US. They still have a long way to go to fight for equality.
Without an effective conflict management mechanism between China and the US in the Taiwan Straits, it is the US that should avoid strategic miscalculation.
Studying foreign experience in digitalization, along with other developed countries, Chinese experience is worth mentioning.
The Pacific is about to become the ocean of Japanese sewage. Relevant international organizations and media should have strengthened supervision on Japan, urged Japan to regularly release the status of nuclear sewage treatment and disclose the facts to the world to form a broader global consensus.
As the situation in the Straits has deteriorated, the risk of a full-scale war in the Straits due to accidental minor incidents is increasing. The only way to eliminate this risk is for the DPP to change its policies toward the Chinese mainland, and for the US to abandon its plans to use the island of Taiwan as a pawn in containing China.
As for the bilateral relations, the Philippines actually has an ambivalent attitude toward the US. The Philippines hopes to receive assistance from the US. Yet it has always remained vigilant toward the US' major power mind-set.
This new competition could even be called “a new global green and low-carbon economy war.”
Many countries have made an independent choice between following the US in containing China and deepening cooperation with China, in order to safeguard their vital interests.
Rivalry will be hard to avoid, but conflict is not predetermined.
From the US perspective, the aim of its frequent wooing of India is to urge India to coordinate with the US' strategy and serve the national interests of the US, instead of India's national interests.
The Japanese government is poised to release treated radioactive water accumulated at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant into the sea despite oppositions.
The CPC's people-oriented methods seem especially impossible for many British and US politicians to understand. In their mind-set, people are not really just people, but to a great extent, votes that are only useful for their political careers.
China has no intent to harm any country, but it has to guard against vicious motives. We must remain proactive in the next phase of the global fight against the pandemic. In this way, we can not only defend China's interests, but also safeguard the rights and interests of the developing world at large while helping the humanity put the pandemic under control.
"Taiwan secession" has long become a joke. Now it is only a question of when and how the Chinese mainland will accomplish the reunification.
Although the current drought and water shortage crisis in Taiwan seems to be a natural disaster, it is actually a man-made calamity caused by the DPP authorities.
At some point the US must make a serious and necessary effort to stabilize relations with China.
The US Department of State announced on Saturday (Beijing time) that it has issued new guidelines for US government interaction with counterparts on the island of Taiwan to encourage US government engagement with the island that reflects their “deepening unofficial relationship.”
The US fanned the flames of subversion and violence in the name of democracy, created division and chaos under the banner of freedom, and engaged in exclusion and confrontation by exploiting the concept of human rights – all these so-called values exposed US selfishness.
Being noticed and profits go hand in hand – but it's dangerous.
It is not the right time to reason with Washington. China has three “weapons” to counterattack US offensives.
Enticement from the US and the EU are hard to resist for India. It is aware of its role as a chess piece of the two to contain China. What New Delhi can do is reap gains from the China-West game while refraining from tilting too much toward any one side.
India is attempting to secure its balance between the two major military powers that are also India's old and new military partners. It may be not feasible and even leave both Russia and the US feeling unpleased.
With a "democratic Belt and Road Initiative," an infrastructure construction plan, and so on, is Uncle Sam taking lessons from China? Or is the US just an imitator?
When the Australian government is taking the lead in ignoring, condoning or even inciting hatred against Chinese and other Asians, those empty anti-racism slogans and demonstrations will only prove the hypocrisy of Australian politics.
The present-day China is different from what it was several decades ago. The balance of military power in the Taiwan Straits has fundamentally changed.
The year 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of "Ping-Pong Diplomacy." Was "Ping-Pong Diplomacy" an accidental event, or an inevitable one? During Joe Biden's term, can both countries repeat the success of "the small ping-pong ball that moved the big Earth ahead"?
Following the US' lead, Japan has been quite noisy recently in terms of China affairs. It shows that Japan suffers from diplomatic myopia and lacks foresight.
Saying “anti-China is not anti-Asian,” the Washington Post basically argues racist hate crimes are justified because people have good reason to be furious. It is saying anti-Asian is wrong, but anti-China is somehow justified.
A recent article in The New York Times said that Chinese consumers' anger toward some Western companies such as H&M and Nike over their irresponsible and inappropriate remarks over Xinjiang cotton has given Chinese brands a chance to win and China's young generation is "more nationalistic" and "actively looking for brands that can align with that confidently Chinese identity."
The problem with the US is that it considers its deeply-rooted human rights problems, such as racism and the gap between rich and poor, as an outlet for its domestic conflicts.
The US has become unable to do its own business well. How has it come to this place?
Without investing in related manufacturing sectors, Biden's ambitious infrastructure plan won't see desired results even with a huge investment.
Moves such as Quad-plus-France drill are only symbolic, without much influence on regional affairs. China is no longer what it was 120 years ago. No matter how hard the US strengthens its alliance system, it will fail to create a new "Eight-Nation Alliance."
China needs to speed up the production of vaccines, in a bid to shield people in the country by mass vaccination before winter and enable to support developing countries with more vaccines.
As China has repeatedly stressed, with the Coast Guard Law, China's maritime law-enforcement activities will be more scientific and standardized.
I am afraid that US-China relations today are even worse than they were in 1971. Then, the confrontation was passive, with neither side much involved with the other. Today, the confrontation is active, given the multiple points of contact, friction, flash and potential conflict – from technology to borders to geopolitics to claimed interference in domestic affairs.
It remains to be seen if Japan will become the next one in the region that ties itself to the US chariot regardless of the consequences.
China still is the largest developing country in the world, facing arduous tasks while shouldering tough missions. However, the Chinese people have strong confidence and ability to create a better life. The future of this country must be full of hope.
LG has official quit making phones.
Australia is a close ally of the US. It is anticipated to see Canberra tethered tightly to Washington's chariot whatever the damage with its relations to China might be.
China is committed to developing long-term friendly ties with Japan, but we are a country sticking to principles. No country can stand straight without principles. Let the opportunism be reserved for the Japanese.
India is supposed to be a developing country with enormous potential. Unfortunately, the country has only been hurting itself by putting geopolitical tricks in front of everything else.
Washington needs to think seriously about how to treat other countries in the world as equals and live together peacefully. It also needs to try to be a normal member of the international community instead of an exceptional, American-style leader.
There is a profound belief in the West that a one-party system is unsustainable because it is incapable of reform. That is not born out by the history of the CPC. It has, more than any other party in the world, displayed a remarkable ability to reform.
When China said it does not accept any country placing itself as superior to others, it is not speaking for itself, but a growing number of countries.
We must use the resources and levers in our hands to release the diversity of this world. China is strong and getting stronger. It is possible for us to lead the world in another direction.

Four other allies of the Five Eyes are anticipated to pile pressure on New Zealand hoping to put more pressure on China. Yet judging from historical experience, Wellington will not easily yield to pressure.
From the perspective of Yiwu city, I feel more hopeful. As they promote financial services for foreigners, they also guard against possible pitfalls by comprehensively assessing the credit risks of foreign organizations.
Will the Cold War come back? Elites and politicians in the strategic domain are getting more serious about this question after US President Joe Biden declared to forge an "alliance of democracies". After the China-US Alaska talks on March 19, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi's visit to the Middle East and his meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was described by the New York Times as an attempt to forge an "alliance of autocracies." "The world is increasingly dividing into distinct if not purely ideological camps, with both China and the US hoping to lure supporters," it read.
BBC's Beijing correspondent John Sudworth left the Chinese mainland without notifying Chinese officials or fulfilling any departure-procedures required of a foreign resident journalist in China. He has "fled" to Taiwan and made himself the center of a breaking news. Some people in Xinjiang plan to seek legal redress against him and sue him for spreading misinformation.
The US strategy of ganging up with its allies against China is unsustainable. Due to its lack of substance, it's doomed to lose momentum. There is little to be feared. The affairs of Hong Kong and Xinjiang can only be decided by our Chinese people. It is an irrefutable and unstoppable trend.
If Washington had refocused its attention, it might not have exaggerated the "China threat" theory as much as it does now. They will find that the benefits of China-US cooperation may outweigh the zero-sum competition with China "from a position of strength."
China is a country of etiquette and Chinese diplomats abide by diplomatic etiquette. But when China is provoked and its core interests are threatened, China will never give in.
Washington's elaborate encirclement of China has been blown to a hideous mess just by China's normal exchanges with other countries that had been delayed by the epidemic.
US President Joe Biden unveiled a roughly $2 trillion American Jobs Plan focused on infrastructure and the climate crisis in a speech in Pittsburgh on Wednesday.
India can't achieve its development by getting on the US chariot. India-US proximity now is different from the rapprochement of China and the US (1972-2000). The US is using India to contain China, which squeezes India's resources for economic development.
Why has China hit back at Western sanctions over Xinjiang? It is about alleviating a fundamentally unequal power relationship. Deterrence by forceful means is the only language the West will understand in order to protect China's core interests.
With India having moved closer to the US in recent years, there have been some voices in India saying New Delhi should abandon its non-alignment policy and tie itself firmly to the US in order to cope with the challenges posed by China's development. Will New Delhi completely abandon its non-alignment policy?
GTCartoon- Science VS Politics
The US will bear a high risk if it irritates China on the Taiwan question.
China, the US and Russia should enhance mutual trust.
The US has long concluded that the coronavirus was leaked from a virus laboratory in Wuhan. It has thus demanded that the WHO trace the trajectory of the virus from the West back to the Wuhan lab through "independent investigation."
If the US tries its best to contain or undermine China's development, it will not solve its own problems, or become stronger.
In the face of increasing suppression from the US, China hopes to unite those that are also the victims of the US hegemony to jointly counter US bullying and unilateralism. China and those countries are actually seeking international justice.
The times have changed, and so has the US.
The US itself has failed in human rights issues, but it is fond of lecturing others.
China-US disputes will be long-term, so are China-Australia disputes. China should guide its people to understand our “tug-of-war” with the US-led Western countries will exist in the long run. We should have patience, strategy and determination.
The US has been doing the worst job in the global pandemic fight. It not only has been jealous of and attacked China's excellent response to the pandemic, but it has also exerted pressure on WHO. Washington is rude. It has torn down all kinds of common sense about public health and humiliated science with politics.
Some Western politicians, scholars and media have wantonly fueled rumors about Xinjiang. They attempt to smear China's image, divide and dismember China, undermine the Chinese economy, and hold back the Belt and Road Initiative.
The US should understand that China has changed, the US itself has changed, and the world has changed.
When it comes to putting their political stance in priority, they are no less proactive than politicians.
Sino-Russian relations are still not an alliance, but they are more than partnership. Both sides should carefully work on the parameters of new relations to address common security challenges. I would not exclude the alliance in the future, especially if the pressure from the West is growing up.
Japan's loss will sharply outweigh its gain if it ties itself on the US' anti-China chariot and sows discord across the Taiwan Straits.
Japan faces pressure to join China sanctions ahead of US trip
That patriots govern Hong Kong is the minimum political requirement to the city.
Western institutes such as BCI that slander Xinjiang's cotton production have degraded into politically manipulated puppets. Can we trust human rights narrated in the mouths of puppets?
The China-US and China-West conflicts have intensified. Sentiments on both sides have seen vehemence with rhetoric escalating. The words used by the US and Western politicians are constantly breaking boundaries.
Australia believes, incorrectly in my opinion, that the US will protect its interests. That is naïve.
US utilizes BCI to smear Xinjiang cotton.
Japan has been increasingly active in the South China Sea issues. This is a move to serve its own diplomatic strategies. Previously engaged in “diplomacy with a bird's eye view of the globe,” Japan is now seeking to become a big power globally.
The US is experiencing a major democracy Waterloo.
The big lie that cotton in Xinjiang is produced through “forced labor” does not stand up to the on-site inspections.
#GTCartoon MrYankee has his say: the right to live in "eternal poverty" should be protected.
Amid Western media's one-sided criticism against China, if some Western reporter could thoroughly examine why CPC has been able to stay in power for over 70 years, the book would have its value increase no less than 150 times in 40 years.
The Biden administration wants to stay on the path of confrontation with both China and Russia simultaneously. This shows that Washington has lost the necessary ability to correct its strategic mistakes from the past.
The West fallacy on Xinjiang cotton.
Even Islamic countries understand China's approach without making irresponsible remarks. But the US-led Western countries have become the most active forces against Xinjiang. This is illogical.
If far-right politics continues to be a trend in the US, this will bring about more hate crimes related to racial discrimination. It will also make the whole of America more turbulent, posing a fundamental threat to the US in terms of values.
Hopefully, H&M, Nike, Adidas any other brands who jump on these political campaign bandwagons will quickly realize their folly, reverse course, and do their best to reverse the far-reaching damage done. Leave the US, UK, Canadian and other disgraceful political hacks to their games.
While Washington cannot handle its domestic infrastructure construction well, it also engages in quarrels with its European allies over their infrastructure choices. As the US generally prioritizes its own interests in handling various affairs, it will only be a self-comforting fantasy for Washington to realize the so-called democratic BRI.
The game between China and the US is one of strength, will, strategy and patience. China should become stronger and more united, and form more open and unspoken rules with the outside world, so the clues and focus of the struggle will be intensified, the deep moral understanding will become wider, and the real areas of conflict will gradually be resolved.
Will US' dual China, Russia containment succeed? China and Russia are responding by coordinating policies more closely. The emphasis on democracy versus authoritarianism may not work in the world where real issues are not ideology but governance.
It is the aspiration of the two peoples that the Biden administration will not be kidnapped by partisan differences. It is imperative to restart cultural exchanges and educational cooperation with Chinese people.
With the development of the global maritime sector and relevant governance, the concept of "maritime community with shared future" has won increasing support worldwide. Building a secure and stable marine environment has become a common aspiration of the international community.
On Friday, the spokespersons of the White House and US Department of Stateraised their voices on Xinjiang cotton. State Department spokeswoman accused the Chinese government of leading a "state-led" social media campaign against foreign companies "for their decision to avoid inputs using Xinjiang cotton because of forced labor." White House press secretary called on the international community to "oppose China's weaponizing of private companies' dependence on its market to stifle free expression and inhibit ethical business practices."

For internet café owners, the era of waiting for customers to come has passed.
The China coast guard law officially came into force on February 1. It clarifies and standardizes the operations of the law in and above China's territorial waters. However, such legitimate regulations have encountered negative responses from some parties. Some media and think tanks in the US, Vietnam and Japan have condemned the regulations as a violation of international norms and the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). According to them, China is "seeking hegemony" in the South China Sea.
Western countries are banning vaccine exports.
The escalation of the confrontation over Xinjiang may have just begun.
