The Chinese vaccines are an important humanitarian supplement, but the US and its major allies have taken a cold attitude and even disparaged Chinese vaccines. Particularly, Western public opinion in general is not friendly. It is keen on hyping and exaggerating any information unfavorable to Chinese vaccines and accuses China of engaging in "vaccine diplomacy."
We need to minimize these losses in 2021 and strive for some kind of compensation for those whose interests have been impaired. This should be an important goal of China's economic work this year.
Without any obstruction, Pompeo's personal emotions are masquerading as the diplomatic proclamations of the US, a superpower. This example of “democratic politics” seems to be like a bad joke.
To weaken China's competitiveness, the US and its allies' public opinions have completely disregarded ethics. Their attitude toward China is nothing but geopolitical logic. We will not cringe from their attacks.
China's political system with its strong mobilization capability is the mainstay of the anti-epidemic fight, while the Chinese public has the will and consciousness to cooperate in the prevention and control work.
The rights of the people have been placed in a secondary position. The US elections have triumphed over the epidemic fight for more attention. This has left a deep impression on the Chinese people.
Elections in Hong Kong must stick to the principle that only those who love the country and love Hong Kong can rule Hong Kong, and those who oppose the central government and destabilize Hong Kong have to be kicked out.
As Pompeo's team will soon be out of power, China needs to avoid entanglement and maintain its bottom line of China-US relations amid the US power transition.
The US is reputed for its democracy and rule of law. But recent incidents are enough to prove that it is a society blatantly dominated by politics.
Beijing should let the US and the Democratic Progressive Party authorities in the island of Taiwan know that if they dare to stage a Pompeo visit to Taiwan before the end of the US secretary of state's tenure, Beijing's strong counteractions will fall like an avalanche upon them.
The US will only see its tragedy when it loses its hysterical sense of superiority.
When it comes to politics, there is almost nothing left in US politics and public opinion but political affiliation. In addition, double standards are rampant.
Let time be the final judge. The justice of history will never be on the side of secessionists within HKSAR or external forces that support them.
The strength of China's prevention and control system is real. China has brought COVID-19 under strategic control and it is firmly under our grasp. The overall situation is as firm as a rock.
The US and its major European allies need to sort out their social governance methods and face up to the weaknesses that are not conducive to dealing with major public crises.
It is plausible that the global recovery, if any, will be quite fragile in 2021. We must be aware that if China's economic growth in 2021 accounts for a disproportionate share of the global recovery, it will attract more envy from the world.
Washington made an outcry riddled with a sour grapes mentality toward the completion of negotiations on the China-EU Comprehensive Agreement on Investment. US Deputy National Security Advisor Matthew Pottinger blasted the EU for reaching the deal with China despite the latter's so-called human rights record. The EU has "removed a fig leaf," Pottinger said. White House Trade Adviser Peter Navarro also called it "a bad deal," which will pose a geopolitical challenge to the US. A conservative US scholar asked angrily: How can the Europeans take China's side, not the US?
Obviously, what promotes peaceful development is cooperation, not confrontation. The China-EU bilateral investment treaty echoes this theme. Thus it has arrived as scheduled. It is a New Year gift from China and the EU to the whole world.
As a country with judicial sovereignty, it is China's own business to judge cases. But now the US and some Western countries frequently find fault with China's judgments and their diplomats in China request to attend the trials, as if they are in their own country.
In our view, the success of China's COVID-19 fight is not because China is strict when it wants to be strict, but that China can have whatever it needs. China only focuses on actual results.
The failure of the US this year stems from its deep scars within. Even its allies will be puzzled on how many problems the change of parties can solve. As it is still uncertain to what extent the US will correct its ways, the country's path four years later will be even more uncertain.
Let the British think tank play with the prediction that China will overtake the US in terms of its economy in 2028, no matter what its motives are. We should not get lost with meaningless comparisons. We should be firm in every step we take.
The ideal scenario is that vaccines become public goods for humans to fight against the coronavirus no matter who develops them. They will be used as a 100 percent scientifically-based tool, rather than for political leverage.
The most important thing for humanity is to get through this immediate crisis. The positive role that Chinese vaccines can play and the contributions they can make are obvious to all. It is believed that the strengths of each vaccine working together will make vigorous efforts to turn the tide, rather than their weaknesses will shape our future.
Cooperation between China and Russia can better correct the negative impact of US hegemony. The bossier the US is, the more resolutely China and Russia will coordinate.
The method of fighting the epidemic is a scientific issue and there should not be politics or ideology. Those labels that have nothing to do with the scientific COVID-19 fight should be discarded.
The current ruling team in Washington is the main obstacle to the world's unity in fighting the pandemic. They are the main culprit of why the world lacks cooperation when facing the coronavirus. According to the current situation, the mutated virus in the UK has a high possibility of spreading to all parts of the world. The consequences will depend on whether the mutated virus is really more contagious and deadly. Human beings are almost resigned to their fate.
Most countries do not want a confrontational relationship with China. Few believe ideology is more important than economic interests and it is only some political and opinion elites who hold a radical view toward their China relations.
How can Glucksmann be so arrogant to portray this advancing oriental power so dark only based on hearsay? Sir, you are spellbound. Wake up.
In the past few decades, the Chinese people have been developing the aerospace field, but their livelihood has also been improving. The lunar exploration project is not a political vanity project – it is well within the ability of Chinese society.
China's anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations into Australian barley and wine are carried out in accordance with rules. There is no political implication.
Is there really any justice in the world? Is there a bottom line for the political shamelessness of some American elites? Will they eventually be punished for what they have been doing?
The Washington-led smear campaign against the CPC has clear political goals. It deliberately distorts the reality of Chinese society and violates the basic logic of exchanges between Western countries and China.
As the US didn't sign up to COVAX under the Trump administration's “America First” policy, it won't be soon before developing countries receive any doses from the US. In contrast, China's vaccine will make it possible for many developing countries to be among the first or early groups to get access to COVID-19 vaccines.
The competition between China and the US is mainly about interests. The real intention of the US launching an ideological offensive against China is to safeguard its hegemonic status.
The Chinese people can clearly feel the hysteria and ludicrousness of such extremism. Griezmann's action makes him a fool.
Countries, especially the US, have turned human rights into a tool to pressure other countries.
Many Western countries need to face the so-called challenges brought about by China's rise. But Australia is much more on guard than average Western countries. It is hard to find a justifiable excuse for its actions from whatever perspective.
The current US administration shouldn't assume that its malicious moves can be repeated and will not be retaliated. It overestimates itself. China will return it with a couple of slaps.
Neither Britain nor France has the capacity for strong and long-term operations in the western Pacific. They also don't have the will or determination to confront China militarily in the region.
What punishments will the politicians who committed these crimes against humanity receive? Everyone in the world is watching the US now, expecting the incoming administration to have the moral courage to punish evil and stand steadfast for righteous justice and rule of law.
There has not been a US administration so deliberately lying in ruins for the next administration. The Trump government wants to control China-US relations cross-term, which is like locking a few important offices in the White House and taking the keys with them.
The US and Europe's closer relations will create more psychological pressure on China, and the significance of their policy changes will be limited. The most important thing for China is to increase its own strength.
Those countries hope that China will resign itself to their provocation and suppression. Otherwise, they would believe that China has become tougher or even a “Wolf Warrior.” Just let them bluff, and let us stay magnanimous.
They show their arrogance in a barbarous way, and they pretend nothing has happened so as to pursue their profits. The Morrison administration is not a ruling team that is serious and trustworthy in relations with China. This is the Chinese people's general impression.
Killing innocent people is trampling on human rights no matter what. But Canberra has the nerve to put itself on the moral high ground of human rights. How arrogant and shameless the Morrison government is!
It's not accidental that the current US administration has played stupid tricks to deal with the CPC. See how it withdrew from the Paris agreement and how it found fault with the WHO. When it questioned those on board whether they are CPC members, its behavior is too weird to be true.
The US and Western media generally took Sullivan's statement as a sign that the Biden administration would pursue a tough policy toward China, reflected by what the opinion groups are predicting about the Biden administration's diplomatic orientation.
There is no way China will fall behind in vaccine research. Those who badmouth China's vaccines will eventually become the laughing stock again.
The US often accuses China of trying to replace the US' dominance in rulemaking. China has never had such a zero-sum mind-set. With the expansion of China's economy, it is China's inalienable right to participate in rule making with other countries. The process of formulating rules cannot be exclusive. No matter how it might be done, efforts to isolate China are doomed to be futile.
Washington needs to engage in serious strategic communication with Beijing. The two need to explore and create an unprecedented win-win situation for both countries. Dialogues of this nature will produce far better long-term outcomes for both countries – unlike the current confrontation. It is a historic responsibility for the Biden administration to do this. By doing so, both China and US will reap rich rewards. So will the rest of humanity.
It's hoped China's aerospace development will get better and better amid the country's coordinated development of various national courses and become a driving force.
Take a look at several things that Biden really hopes to do, including pandemic control and climate change, to name a few. Regarding these issues, China is a partner that the US cannot circumvent. This reflects the true nature of China-US relations. Even if the US wants to improve its competitiveness, it cannot see China as an enemy.
The US and Taiwan island only dare to use “salami tactics” while eagerly awaiting the mainland's response. They hope to gain petty advantages to boost the image of the Trump administration and Taiwan authorities, but dare not provoke the mainland too much.
The fate of the global economy next year will rest on tohow much substantive progress is made in defeating the pandemic. There is no time to play political games in the fight against the pandemic.
The development of Asia-Pacific region can be seen as a crossroads for the entire mankind.
Take a look at what is happening in the Five Eyes countries. The US and the UK are both among the countries hit hardest by COVID-19, and both have deep domestic conflicts and long-term uncertainties. Canada and Australia, with their small populations and vast land resources, are more like “Western slackers” than the European countries who have strong crisis awareness. They all need to see where their crisis lies and who their real enemies are. Otherwise, they will always have a misconception that China is poisoning them whenever they are not feeling well. How absurd such a logic is!
Pompeo's efforts to create a China-US confrontation run counter to the interests of the American people. He puts world peace in peril, but will not be followed by the whole US and the Western world. No report can make up for the US' China policy, nor will it leave any historic legacy. The document released by the US State Department's Office of Policy Planning will end up being pieces of wasted paper.
We suggest Japan and Australia exercise restraint on the way to ganging up against China. They should better not create confrontations with China under the instigation of the US, or follow the US step to rope India in to contain China. They will surely pay a corresponding price for treating China this way.
We should do our own thing seriously and strengthen our belief in peaceful development. We should not pursue the idea of teaching the US a good lesson. But there is also no need for us to be afraid of any provocation or pressure. China is such a powerful country. Is there anything we should be afraid of? China's trouble will also be the trouble of its challengers. We are willing to make sincere efforts to avoid troubles together. There is also another option for China, that is, to let nature take its course.
The US is a real tiger on the global stage, but when it comes close to China's coastal waters and touches China's core interests, it becomes a paper tiger. With just over two months left for the Trump administration, any attempt to flex its muscle or flaunt will receive embarrassment and humiliation. China is not a badge of honor for the US political elite to daub.
History will show that the Taiwan secessionist forces will be severely punished. They will eventually face the law. China will never allow its island of Taiwan to be separated from the country. Those extremists who commit crimes to their country and people will pay the price, sooner or later.
There is no need to overestimate the significance of the RCEP. But it will undoubtedly enhance Chinese people's confidence by showing us that multilateralism is still full of vitality and there is still broad room for us to participate in it.
The Chinese people don't want to be involved in trouble after the US election. But we must make the Trump administration know that we had not hesitated to fight back their provocations during the peak of their rule, nor will we be reluctant to strike back when necessary in the coming days. Now may be their craziest time, but we know it's also their most vulnerable time. They lack mobilization abilities to promote extreme confrontation with China.
In the final analysis, the ultimate justification of Hong Kong affairs will always be in China's hand. There is only a certain while for Hong Kong opposition to collude with outside forces, and whoever stirs up the trouble will pay equally heavy price. Surely, the narratives that play up values first might be sensational, but common sense and conventional wisdom are the most powerful. Just keep in mind that the biggest reality is that Hong Kong belongs to China, and don't grapple with it. It is both a political rationale and a useful secular philosophy.
If Pompeo lives longer than the average American, he will see the critical point in the next two decades when the US will no longer be predominantly white, and all kinds of restructuring that this change will bring. That is the real political challenge in the US. He should just mind the US' own business and deal with the political balance in the great change of the country. Confronting China will not help the US in transition.
The Hong Kong opposition must know that Hong Kong is not a country, but only a special administrative region under the rule of China. The Hong Kong opposition can only engage in activities and play a role in Hong Kong internal affairs under the Basic Law. It's a dead end to oppose the central government and wrestle with the country by colluding with external forces. The Hong Kong opposition have reached the crossroads. They must choose.
SCO members are all emerging markets. It's in the best interest of all countries to realize further development. These countries are facing a similar development environment, difficulties and problems. They share a lot in common in these aspects and could understand each other easily. The SCO is a community. All members should make collective efforts to contribute to the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.
The political manipulation of the DPP to join WHO has hit another ignominious failure. Taiwan will have no so-called international space if it rejects the 1992 Consensus. Any political manipulation by DPP authorities will be futile.
China has never been a main problem of the US. And it can be sure that the so-called “China threat” is much weaker than the “US threat” many Chinese people are sensing. It is wrong for the US to make policies based on “China threat.” If the US knows that is wrong and still does so, that would be more horrible. No matter which election year, American voters don't encourage such wrongdoing. It is hoped that the two parties in the US can thoroughly reflect on and clarify this issue.
Beijing should undertake to communicate with the Biden team as thoroughly as it can, making greater efforts to recover China-US relations to a state of great predictability.
Maintaining social unity has become an increasingly arduous and sensitive task. Obviously, the US needs political reforms more than many other countries to enhance its ability to promote unity.
It is hoped US public opinion institutions can be more pragmatic, restrain their arrogance and do some self-examination according to professionalism and ethics of the industry. This is respect they are supposed to have toward morality and responsibility.
By hosting the CIIE, China has once again opened its arms to the outside world. The Chinese people believe the world needs countries to embrace each other.
The election mechanism of the US has been riddled with loopholes, filled with, implicitly or explicitly, individual or collective interests of political parties and elites. This is the tragedy and loss of US society, but is not limited to it.
Over 46 million people have been infected, with more than 1.2 million deaths. This has become a worldwide humanitarian crisis. To end it, the world should at least have an objective knowledge of it and unite against it. But the world has failed in both aspects due to the US.
All in all, US elections are not that important to China. The Chinese people should not count that the US accidentally or suddenly changes its mind. The US attitude toward China should have a bottom line, and the bottom line must be shaped by the Chinese themselves.
Pompeo is a typical spoiler, and what Asia needs now is construction. There are disputes across Asia, but there is no reason to let any dispute dominate the region. Pompeo wants himself to be the reason. He has become poison in the area. Normally, no one wants to drink poison. Pompeo has come and left, and these Asian countries will carefully put the memory of him as poison in the corner of the house.
The fifth plenary session of the 19th CPC Central Committee is leading the country forward. China has the capital and ability to do so. In this turbulent world, the meeting has provided a practical and significant guide for our direction, goal and tactics.
The US' hunt against fox hunters is turning its previously covert shelter into a public umbrella.
China is steadily on its path of peaceful development and safeguards just interests. It does not view India or the US as a foe. As some engage in plots or conspiracies, just let them be. They are bound to suffer the consequences.
The strength of the mainland is growing, while the "Taiwan secession" has come to a dead end. The mainland must exert unprecedented pressure on the island to curb the evil trend.
Taiwan is an isolated island besieged by the mainland. Returning to 1992 Consensus and maintaining peace in the Taiwan Straits jointly with the mainland is the only option for Taiwan authorities, while seeking US support for "Taiwan secession" is a dead end.
The CPC has been remarkably leading China. It made the country get rid of the high disturbance of the epidemic on economic and social life, and displays the promising development plan to its 1.4 billion people.
Pompeo is one of the worst secretaries of state in US history, but he feels quite complacent. He thinks he can change the logic of international relations in the era of globalization with his inflammatory articles that will see him honored in history.
US Deputy National Security Advisor Matt Pottinger gave a speech in Putonghua during a video conference hosted by London-based think tank Policy Exchange on Friday. Like many other high-level US officials, he attacked China's system and so-called "ambitions." Trying to be different, he focused on China's "United Front" work while giving the speech in Chinese to show his distinctive understanding of China.
Certain forces surrounding China should realize that they will only suffer misfortune and meet a dead end if they desperately follow external powers in disturbing China.
When China was very poor, it didn't surrender to US pressure and stood out to resist and finally defeat the US on the Korean Peninsula. Today, China has grown to be a strong country, so there is no reason for China to fear the US threats and suppression.
Washington has gone too far with its arrogant proposition that whatever the US does is right and whatever China does is wrong. Washington is indulging in its fantasies.
Washington has overestimated the role of the so-called common values in gathering its allies. The US is selfish. It has selfish goals and means in its strategy to contain China. But selfish unilateralism does not go far - this is the true universal value of human society.
The idea of an “Asian NATO” is incompatible with the times. The China it targets is quite different from the real China. The US faces huge challenges in creating an anti-China united front. India, Japan and Australia even have differences with the US in defining and describing the QUAD mechanism
We believe that China's GDP growth of 4.9 percent will definitely have a positive impact on the international community's perception of China. All lies are vulnerable in the face of facts, including lies that smear China's role in the COVID-19 fight
The comprehensive achievements of the COVID-19 fight have greatly improved Chinese people's confidence in their country. It is believed that many people are inclined to follow their government's guidance about when the vaccination can be universally available. For Chinese people, this is a serious public health issue rather than anything else.
Washington wants to use the closure of the Confucius Institutes as a bargaining chip, asking Beijing to allow it to open more education institutions in China. As we all know, the US wants to politically subvert non-Western countries, and Washington has made no secret of this. In the turbulence that has occurred in various parts of the world, US diplomatic and cultural institutions there often played an active role. This is an open secret.
The presidential election is eroding the US' overall objectivity as Republicans and Democrats divide the country into two camps.
Shenzhen has been the bridgehead of the last round of reform and opening-up. The city has made outstanding achievements, and, to a large extent, defined the country's reform and opening-up. When people are not clear about what the reform and opening-up is, they simply take a look at Shenzhen.
In recent years, most of Washington's eye-catching policies have certain “anti-China” elements. As a result, every effort of China has helped the country grow. However, the US has been harming others without benefitting itself.
New outbreak in Qingdao reminds the Chinese people to keep a high degree of vigilance against the severe situation of the epidemic in fall and winter this year. At the same time, it should not bring widespread public anxiety and weaken people's confidence in the effectiveness of national prevention and control system.
It is obviously a tactic Tsai chose to soften her tone in the speech.
