Time for sincerity from US in trade talks with China

The US has to change its bad habit of using tough talk to cheer on its negotiating team, which easily undermines the fragile mutual trust between China and the US.

HK opposition should not misjudge situation

Understanding the situation is essential to everyone. The riots won't have any political future. Hong Kong's deep-seated problems can only be solved through development.

Chinese purchase of US agricultural products a goodwill gesture, also leverage

The 12th round of China-US trade talks scheduled on Tuesday will face difficulties. But as long as the two sides release goodwill on the basis of mutual respect and meet each other halfway, there will be no differences that cannot be overcome. After all, reaching a deal is in the interests of both sides.

Western countries in the minority on human rights issue

Two weeks ago, UN ambassadors from 37 countries signed a joint letter supporting China's governance in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. The size of these countries far surpasses that of the 22 developed countries which accused China of human rights abuses. Now, the number of signatories is increasing. By 6 pm July 26, 50 countries supported China, forming an overwhelming advantage.

Editorial: FedEx's misbehavior hurts globalization

The US advocates respect for the market, but what it is doing is damaging the market for its own interests. Some analysts have pointed out that what really concerns the US over Huawei are not security issues, but that after Huawei's technology is widely used worldwide, it would be difficult for the US to keep other countries under surveillance through telecommunications.

Equality key to China-US trade talks

China's attitude is clear. The US must understand China's stance and not arbitrarily deny the legitimacy of China's pursuit. Because such disavowal would be fermented in the US and turn into a stumbling block on the path to reaching a fair agreement with China.

China's military strong but defensive

The West led by the US should understand that China can't be intimidated. Past clashes between imperialist powers were often triggered by competing for colonies and overseas spheres of influence. But China has no colony and is not interested in seeking spheres of influence. All the challenges it faces happen in China's doorway. But it is wise to avoid squeezing a military power.

Hong Kong opposition's pipe dream of amnesty to the mob

Hong Kong's opposition and radical protesters have ridiculed themselves by demanding that the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government not prosecute lawbreaking demonstrators. We believe that the SAR government will never make concessions to them on the issue.

US geopolitical zealots lack wisdom on China

The letter makes us realize that there are supporters of extreme stances toward China in the US. China must accelerate strengthening itself with rational foreign policies and increasing capabilities to deal with false accusations. This is the best counterattack to the letter and other similar challenges.

Restricting HK police damages rule of law

Hong Kong police face the risk of being attacked by the mob, “flesh search” by the online mob, which has severely restrained the police force. This is no longer how a society under the rule of law should operate. If Hong Kong continues to regard rule of law as its core value, it must treat police law enforcement correctly.

Hong Kong rioters can't get away with their acts

The rioters should stop as soon as they can. They won't have a way out by antagonizing Hong Kong laws and the Basic Law. The central government and Chinese people will resolutely make sure this principle.

China shows prudence in US trade row

The consensus reached by the two state leaders at the G20 Osaka summit set a new goal to end the trade war. The two have already exchanged goodwill, and negotiating teams have held two phone talks. Face-to-face talks are soon to happen. We hope such momentum will lead to a real outcome.

China bashers can't dictate US policy

We hope it is not the “miscellaneous troop” which is always making waves. The US needs politicians and academics with a broader strategic vision and greater insight and responsibility.

White Paper sets Xinjiang facts straight

The State Council Information Office published on Sunday a White Paper, clarifying certain misunderstandings about Xinjiang's ethnic, religious, cultural and historical issues in the international community. With the paper, kind-hearted people can distinguish between right and wrong. It is hoped malicious agitators will zip their lip.

Hong Kong's 'silent majority' won't stay silent forever

If Hong Kong loses its rule of law and becomes a political battleground, it will have an uncertain future. That is against the wishes of Hong Kong residents, and China will not allow it to happen.

US insults the world with Pence, Pompeo lies about Xinjiang

China's human rights cannot advance without peace and development. Pence and Pompeo are talking nonsense. The international society is much smarter than what they think.
