China's quarantine moves need understanding

Weihai's quarantine measure is an extension of China's internal quarantine system and it is unnecessary and unrealistic to politicize it. The three countries should jointly overcome difficulties, and we should be able to reach a firm consensus on it.

Washington unwise to push WSJ reporters' issue too far

The US media ridicules China as the “real sick man of the Asia,” and the US government constantly suppresses Chinese media's operations in the US. Why can't China do something to express our attitude and temper?

COVID-19 puts global health, trade to the test

China has firmly controlled the epidemic within its realm. The result is more powerful than an argument. To control the epidemic from spreading in the real world is far more important than other affairs.

Central govt's concern for people sets example for local officials

The greatest instruction from the central government is to serve the people. Pay more attention to what the people are thinking and talk about. Don't run against the public opinion at any time. Lip service to loyalty does not count. It is the greatest loyalty of an official to fulfill their responsibility of governance and rally the people more firmly around the CPC Central Committee.

COVID-19 fight must not be limited by egoism

Suppressing Chinese media bodes ill for bilateral ties

Some US political elites have been strengthening political mobilization against China and trying to rope in more Western forces to oppose China. Their most prominent act is to attack the leadership of the Communist Party of China and blacken China's political system. They obviously hope to suppress other countries' desire to expand cooperation with China by mobilizing people's political aversion to China.

West obsessed with political stunt over Xinjiang

Facts speak louder than words. History will finally record Xinjiang's revolutionary turning point which leads the region away from turbulence. A real humanitarian monument is being established in Xinjiang. All paranoia and hypocrisy will eventually be gone with the wind.

It is naive to expect Chinese economy to collapse

The Chinese society will try its best to reduce and recover the economic loss this time, and the government and the market will try their best to help the enterprises in trouble. At the level of social ethics, this is the test we need to go through now. Any gloat from abroad during this period is disgraceful. As for strategy, those who want China to suffer can stop. All we can say is that they think too much and are naive and like to deceive themselves.

China-EU ties grow more important

China needs a peaceful and stable external environment, and it needs to strengthen cooperation with all countries in the world, including European countries. China-EU cooperation is even more important especially when a major world power abandons international cooperation and pursues unilateralism.

Dual tasks of virus fight, work resumption

As China attaches great importance to the fight against the epidemic, the possibility of a new out-of-control outbreak is very low. But we should remain vigilant. We need to accelerate the recovery of production and consolidate prevention and control, so as to achieve the victory ahead.

Time to resume suspended flights to China

Canceling flight to and from China has made many airlines suffer huge losses, which also deals a heavy blow to the first-quarter performance of the world economy. If all the countries keep their measures unchanged, it means all sides will pay bigger cost from the epidemic.

Govt must continue efforts against NCP

Our cities must be fortresses to shield us from the NCP and any other pandemic, but they are also arenas of various economic and social activities. As people gradually return to their normal lives, the prevention and control measures must not be neglected.
