  • China and India can cooperate on COVID-19 fight but tensions still in air

    Considering that the current epidemic situation in India is too severe, the Modi administration will mostly focus on preventing the virus from further spreading. India will not have excess power and military resources to create conflicts on border area, since some military resources will be used to help control the epidemic.

  • Severe wave in India reveals Quad's hypocrisy in combating COVID-19

    The response of Quad countries toward India's help request should sound the alarm bell for India. The US is moving close to India because of its need to contain China. Such closeness could dissipate accordingly as the US improves ties with China.

  • Why some try to drive a wedge between China and Pakistan

    The time-tested China-Pakistan partnership is higher than the Himalayas, sweeter than honey and firmer than steel. Those who are jealous of Pakistan's prosperity and progress brought by such relations always want to stir up troubles.

  • Hanoi protects ties with Beijing from smears

    Political relations between the two countries are very sound, with their differences on the South China Sea under management. In this context, even if the US steps up its attempts to woo Vietnam, the South China Sea issue will not make a big wave in China-Vietnam relations.

  • Boarding Washington chariot will hardly bring desired benefits to New Delhi

    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.

  • Western countries pump up India's limp democracy in power game

    Democracy is just an excuse for these four countries when they are in conflict with each other. The Quad only has common geopolitical aims against China, not common democracy.

  • New Delhi's ambivalent attitude toward RCEP

    As a rising power, India should think about its role and the long-term development in Asia and beyond. This should be the attitude for India to develop its economy and diplomacy in a steadfast manner.
