China expects more goodwill from India amid virus outbreak

As a country with a high population density, and economic strength that is only about one-fifth of China's, India's basic public health medical system remains under construction. India lacks sufficient capability to mobilize its entire society to fight against the virus outbreak as China has done.

Foreign perceptions won't influence China

China's development is not determined by how the outside world sees China, but how China remains firm on its chosen path. In this process, it is of vital importance that China's governance system should advance with the times and have a strong ability to self-correct.

US criticism toward China reveals a country unwilling to learn

Compared with the US, China has a stronger system that can better mobilize the public and is better at responding in a timely and effective manner.

Australia's travel ban betrays cultural traditions, encourages discrimination

Australians boast their prideworthy spirit of mateship. At this time of a global health crisis, we look forward to Australia's empathetic and humane treatment of Chinese students and other visitors. We also expect Canberra to adopt a more positive and constructive outlook of bilateral relations.

Japan's 'indestructible' US security treaty outdated and under threat

Although Trump spoke highly of US-Japan military cooperation, he has asked Japan to pay more for US troops stationed in Japan. While there may still be room in negotiations on paying more, it is unclear if Trump sees the security treaty, which Abe has guarded with all his heart, is still ideal.

Why isn't the BRI a strategy of China?

A challenge to the US and the West is that if they keep viewing and defining China with traditional strategic concepts, continue to pile pressure and even contain it at the cost of decoupling with the country, will they eventually create a China that confronts them?

After 60 years, how will Japan and US deal with cracks showing up in alliance?

Rather than the alliance itself, the Japanese are worrying about their future. Japanese politicians have not portrayed a clear picture of how Japan will deal with Asia and the world without the US shield. This is what Japanese need to consider on the 60th anniversary of their alliance with the Americans.

China-Russia ties to deepen despite US wedge

In this context, there would be no significant changes in China-Russia ties, except that they will further deepen. The two countries will engage in broader cooperation under frameworks such as the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, and the United Nations, and in domains including economy, regional order and global governance.

China support vital to Myanmar's transition

Xi's visit, and agreements made during the trip, will not instantly solve all the problems and challenges between the two countries. Many Myanmar analysts, however, believe that this visit will open a new chapter in bilateral relations toward a much higher stratum backed by the sufficient political and economic might of China.

Xi's Myanmar visit will boost Paukphaw ties

Even though protectionism and unilateralism are rising, China and Myanmar are still injecting positive energy into win-win cooperation. The long-term mutual support between both countries fully explains the true meaning of “Paukphaw” or brotherhood. Xi's visit will endow a deeper connotation of the times into this term.
