Time to pay attention to human rights in US

The newly issued report is filled with diplomatic and political antagonism. It violates the concept of human rights advocated by the UN Human Rights Council. Its only value is to remind people that it is time to pay some attention to the human rights situation in the US.

GOP in danger of becoming far-right

Some Western political parties intentionally promote such an attitude to win support from dominant ethnic majority people. They are generally defined as far-right political parties. We wish the GOP won't degrade into one.

In new low, Pompeo passes buck to Beijing

Pompeo represents a group of US politicians who are neither capable nor competent. They have no strategy for governing a large country like the US,so they keep stirring up trouble against other countries and resorting to unorthodox tactics to seek political success. Time will give them a lesson.

Media should serve people's interests

China and the US have major differences in social organization systems, but it is inappropriate to discuss which system is superior by comparing their media industries. If the US system is as good as it says, why would it be in panic when facing China's progress, which stems from the Chinese system? The US could have just used its system to make itself great again.

Washington's ridiculous war against Chinese media

The China policy of the US is going too far, yet the general pattern of bilateral ties is not that messy, and China's relations with the West has remained stable. It shows the words and deeds of Pompeo and people like him are outrageous, but the norms of international relations are more influential than their power.

Societies must adapt well to virus uncertainty

We should be confident, even though the resumption of production and work comes with risks, as an unbreakable great wall of epidemic prevention has been formed in China by the government's increased ability in prevention and control, as well as people's high vigilance to the virus.

Blaming China for own virus control failure detestable

Some Americans have acridly called the novel coronavirus “China virus.” The H1NI virus broke out in North America and spread to the world in 2009. Does anyone call it “America virus?” The US is the epicenter of flu every year, causing death of hundreds of thousands of people annually across the world. Has the US been condemned because of this?

Jimmy Lai will never escape justice no matter how long it takes

The crime of selling Hong Kong's prosperity for personal gain can never be whitewashed. The anti-extradition bill protest seriously hurt the rule of law in Hong Kong and overshadowed the modern city. However, Lai has helped the anti-China US political elites to whitewash the protest as the most touching scene in Hong Kong. No matter how late justice arrives, Lai will never escape punishment.

Epidemic won't drive China, S.Korea apart

Chinese people cherish China-South Korea relations, but also prioritize safety of Chinese people. We will treat South Koreans coming to China and the Chinese people squarely. There is little room for misunderstanding.

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.
