When South Korean Foreign Minister Chung Eui-yong tried to explain his controversial "pro-China" remarks, he might have once again accidentally spelt out the truth. On Thursday, he said, although some countries are concerned over China becoming more assertive, he does not believe China is treating South Korea this way.
We must warn solemnly Japan, India and Australia not to follow the US too far in confronting China. Once they step on the red line of China's core interests, China will not care about their relations with the US, and China will not hesitate to punish them.
Justice naturally inhabits man's mind. The heads of state of China and the US both addressed the UN at this special occasion. It's believed the world has the ability to judge who the true defender and promoter of peace and development is, and who the instigator and initiator of division and confrontation is.
In opposing a new cold war, Beijing can only hope that the power of American people is greater than the operational energy of the US government and some political elites against the tide of the times.
Universal Beijing Resort officially opened to the public on Monday. It's delightful that China's opening-up has yielded another fruit. There is a Hong Kong Disneyland and a Shanghai Disneyland both in South China. Now with Universal Beijing Resort in the north, a total of three mega foreign theme parks have arrived in China, two of which operate respectively in the largest city of the North and South China. These parks have constituted the outline of China's opening-up. It is also an indicative of China's economic progress and increasingly national consumption capacity. The consumption outlook of China's middle classes has been constantly refreshed and modernized.
US Marine Corps Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the commander of the US Central Command, admitted Friday that a US drone strike in Kabul, Afghanistan on August 29 "was a mistake" that killed as many as 10 civilians including up to seven children. US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin later expressed his "deepest condolences to surviving family members of those who were killed," saying, "we will endeavor to learn from this horrible mistake."
The SCO's positive role and NATO once again constitute a sharp contrast regarding the Afghan issue. NATO is indeed an expert in causing havoc. The US and the West ran away leaving a mess in Afghanistan. Now the SCO, out of a high sense of responsibility, comes to help Afghanistan. It's clear which one is good.
Washington flaunts its strength on the spur of the moment, but history will surely nail the incumbent US government's ugly move on the pillar of shame.
The US and its allies are messing up the world. They are even touching the bottom line of the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. Here comes an interesting question: Who is more capable of withstanding the global chaos? China or them?
Chinese ambassador was banned from British Parliament. Reciprocal retaliatory actions should be taken against the British Ambassador to China. The British envoy should not be allowed to enter the Great Hall of the People in Beijing in the future.
Can the Chinese people still travel especially during the National Day holidays? Local officials should not be panicked. They shouldn't advocate “staying put during the holidays” easily.
This issue should not be left unsettled. The Hague should act. The UN should give an explanation. International opinion should call for justice.
Sending PLA fighter jets over the island of Taiwan is a step we must take. The move will pose a fundamental warning to the Taiwan authorities and bring about reconstruction of the situation across the Taiwan Straits.
The dissolution of the Hong Kong Alliance is the long-awaited result of HK's righteous forces. The organization was a running dog fed by overseas forces. It had been a cancer to Hong Kong that must be removed completely.
If the US renames Taiwan island's mission, the Chinese mainland should respond to it in a punitive way no lighter than it did with Lithuania. It's anticipated China will recall its ambassador to the US. It's likely the “lowest diplomatic reaction.
Though it is a major event, 9/11cannot change the logic of globalization and cannot affect China's national system and the Chinese people's dream and diligence.
The US wants to show off and pull a stunt with 100-percent security, but this is never the way major powers deal with each other.
Japanese officials are talking about the Taiwan question in a more provocative tone. Japan does not have the ability to make the Taiwan question “Japan's business.” Whatever they say, their goal is to win support from the US.
The US and the UK's political maneuver in Hong Kong was easily defeated in the face of the national security law for Hong Kong. This shows that Hong Kong is part of China and is under China's sovereignty.
While China is competing with the US at sea, it must also make preparations for military frictions when the two sides fail to control their disputes, as well as the possible large-scale military conflicts afterwards. Once the situation gets out of control and triggers military clash between China and the US, we must give full play to our home field advantage. China will definitely win once there is a war.
Afghanistan is a neighbor of China, and where the situation heads there does concern China's interests. But we are willing to believe that China's Afghan policy, from design to implementation, will be penetrated with the wisdom and prudence of the Eastern power, and it will beyond the imagination of many Western elites.
China's nuclear policy lacks transparency? The US and its allies try to use such narrative traps to confuse the world.
We oppose any policy adopted by the US and Western forces that would further worsen the situation in Myanmar. For us, their political declaration matters nothing to them but will only harm Myanmar.
The coming National Day holidays should become a new battle to improve our system of dynamically clearing COVID-19 cases. We have to try our best not to let the epidemic resurface.
Although the Europe is anxious about being surpassed by China, it cannot afford “decoupling” with China. They may feel good by talking tough about China. But if they translate those words into actions, they are risking Europe's own future.
The one that will suffer more from deteriorating bilateral relations will definitely be Japan.
Washington should not have thought that showing a little willingness toward cooperation in its comprehensive containment of Beijing is “mercy” to China.
Westerners shouldn't take their likes and dislikes for granted if they want to predict the future of China.
The US, which has made such a fool of itself in Afghanistan, can never hold or defend the banner of justice in the Western Pacific.
Washington elites are more aware than anyone else how much blood of civilians from war-torn countries is on the hands of US troops they command.
The US is too impetuous to implement a set of detailed withdrawal plans. And it has paid a heavy price for this.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence of the US on Friday released a so-called summary of the intelligence community assessment on COVID-19 origins. There are three main points: First, the intelligence community remains divided on the most likely origin of COVID-19; second, it denies that the virus was developed as a biological weapon; third, it continues to smear and slander China. Some US media have previously stated that this may "disappoint" US President Joe Biden.
Then will Biden go back to Afghanistan? He dares not, because it may bring more shame to him. It is difficult to leave, and it is even more difficult to leave gracefully.
Who is the CPC? The answer will become increasingly clear and definite.
The old-fashioned bluff and bluster is like a show that doesn't sell.
We will never give up bringing science, reason and justice back to the field of international public opinion.
Washington is treating Vietnamese people as fools.
Washington is wrong because it is overambitious.

The Chinese mainland possesses sufficient destructive capabilities against the military on the Taiwan island.

Same with Japan, same with South Korea, same with - Taiwan. It's not even comparable to [Afghanistan to] talk about that."
Let's wait and see another ugly show starring the US administration and intelligence agencies. As they have shocked the world with their performance in Afghanistan, people are now more mentally prepared for another farce.
Given Taiwan society's obsession of "small but sure happiness" and fanatical about political infighting, the island's authorities are clearly thinking that they can achieve the goal of secession by enjoying the comfort under US protection. But it's time to wake up!
Washington has limited cooperation with China within the sphere where the US can unilaterally benefit. China will never accept such logic. Cooperation must be mutually beneficial.
If there truly are 30,000 US troops in Taiwan, it is believed that China will immediately put the Anti-Secession Law into use, destroy and expel US troops in Taiwan by military means, and realize reunification by force.
The best choice for the DPP authorities is to avoid pushing the situation to that position. They need to change their course of bonding themselves to the anti-Chinese mainland chariot of the US.
China will rationally face the changing situation in Afghanistan - it will prevent the situation there from having a negative impact on Xinjiang and at the same time evaluate the situation objectively.
Radical opposition forces that once played a destructive role in Hong Kong should repent and mend their thinking and behavior as early as possible. And those who refuse to realize their mistake will only pay a greater price.
The blood of the Chinese people cannot be shed in vain. No matter what measures we take to punish the evil forces that carried out the July 14 terrorist attack, they are justified and will send a solemn signal that whoever kills Chinese people will face serious consequences. As long as we have the ability to do this, we don't need to hesitate to use this ability.
If US and Taiwan's tricks continue, a major crisis in the Taiwan Straits will doomed to take place.
The Taiwan question cannot be used as a bargaining chip. It is a high voltage line, even a watershed between peace and war.

The situation is getting severe in the US, while Washington is bound to shirk the pressure to China. The Trump team did so, and the Biden team is trying to surpass its predecessor.

It's hoped Alibaba will calm down to carry out adjustments. It needs to accept both legal and moral supervision at the same time.
Nearly three dozen of the US' most influential business groups, representing retailers, chip makers, farmers and others, asked the Biden administration to restart trade talks with China and cut tariffs on imports on Thursday, saying the tariffs are a drag on the US economy. They raised the appeal in a letter to US Trade Representative Katherine Tai and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. This is the clearest collective voice of the US business community on hoping to restore normal US-China trade since the Biden administration took office.

Whether the government and relevant departments have fulfilled their duties is being questioned by the public, which has been waiting for an authoritative conclusion.

The combined power of the national security law for Hong Kong and the Anti-Foreign Sanctions Law will provide firm and strong protection for the interests of Hong Kong people, who deserve a better future together with the country.
The global public health crisis can only end with a global victory. All countries are struggling to achieve an excellent comprehensive effect of the COVID-19 fight. We look forward to the moment when mankind will achieve a common victory. We have full confidence in the ultimate victory.

It is not unanticipated that Western media made a huge fuss about two Western journalists questioned by a crowd in Zhengzhou, Central China's Henan Province.
Americans should know as clearly as the Chinese do about what level of nuclear power China really needs to build.
While the US is putting most of its efforts into its diplomatic layout on China, China needs to put most of its efforts into doing its own things well. That way, China will continue to advance and become unstoppable.

The Global Times confirmed with our correspondents at the Olympics that the map was added by NBC during its broadcast. It's not part of the official Olympic live-stream. Some netizens posted on Twitter that when the Chinese Olympic team appeared in the opening ceremony, NBC's narrator attacked China and asked the audience "not to forget Hong Kong and Xinjiang."For a long time, NBC has been vicious to China and some people have criticized it on Twitter.
Important factors such as the unique advantages of “one country, two systems,” the strong protection offered by the national security law for Hong Kong, as well as the opportunities brought about by the Belt and Road Initiative and the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, all determine that international investors' confidence in Hong Kong is increasing day by day.
Even if the US can manipulate the WHO's origins tracing arrangements, it can never intimidate China.
The US can't unilaterally define the "guardrails" between the two countries out of its own interests, because they need to be defined by both China and the US to advance the interests of both countries.
The heavy rainfall in Central China's Henan Province has once again shocked the Chinese people's previous understanding of meteorological disasters and pushed us to rethink how to prevent such disasters from causing tragic consequences.
Henan is a Chinese province where there is stronger faith, stronger ability to organize and fight in the face of the huge disaster. It has the boundless power from the whole country to immediately mobilize support. On the whole, we have confidence in Henan as well as in the country.
The China-US competition will not be decided by which side is more able to make accusations. A strong US is not made by scolding other countries. If today's US wants to keep its strength by scolding and framing another major country, history will teach it a lesson.
There will be a higher probability that both sides could misjudge that the other side is launching cyber attacks. Washington must bear responsibility for this scenario. US allies which follow the US won't benefit either.
The US vision to build DARC has particularly sounded the alarm for China. China must accelerate the building of its space counterattack capability and form a stronger deterrent to the US.
We advise the US and the island of Taiwan not to misjudge the situation and not to underestimate our determination and will to punish their provocation. They must be prepared to face a sudden blow.
Hong Kong's future is bright as the national security law has been enacted for a year. The mainland views national security issues from an overall and long-term perspective and will not allow any risks that threaten the country's core interests.

In a word, even though a thousand miles away, those who commit terrorist attacks on our compatriots will pay.
Ghebreyesus' latest remarks show he has been under tremendous pressure from the US. WHO shouldn't succumb to US pressure to politicize the origins tracing. People hope to see insistence on scientific spirits and morality from the WHO.
What China needs to do is to upset those “containment freaks” in the US from quarter to quarter. They will feel frustrated and disappointed in their acts of slandering China. Therefore, all of China's previous achievements belong to the past. We must continue to do well for the next quarter and the next year, and we must strive to do better.
If we win this battle, we will reshape the world's expectation toward China-US competition. The world will have a favorable view of China. The US policy of isolating China will make the world ostracize the US.
It is totally immoral for the US to continue to maintain the sanctions and to impose a high-intensity blockade on Cuba. It is especially criminal to maintain the embargo against the backdrop of the current serious escalation of the epidemic situation in Cuba.

It is undisputed that China is becoming increasingly stronger. Yet some external forces are still suppressing and provoking China. How China responds to them, whether the country should respond with aggressive countermeasures and to what extent should China counter the suppressions and provocations is now a test for China.
As the China-US conflict intensifies, both societies will inevitably pay more attention to internal unity and become more vigilant about the forces that threaten national cohesion. It is a trend that Chinese and American intellectuals serve their own national interests and cheer for their own countries in order to win the competition.
The pain that the US brought to Afghanistan has ended, and a new page is unfolding in the country. It is still uncertain whether there will be a civil war or a reconciliation in Afghanistan, and it is also uncertain what will bring the country together from a mess. But China will always be Afghanistan's benevolent neighbor willing to help. We only inject positive energy into Afghanistan and will never go there to cause tragedy.
China rejects the requests from the US and the West, and does not hesitate to engage in fierce confrontations with them in this regard.
