Taiwan is to blame for Kiribati's decision

The mainland will maintain long-term development and further strengthen its power. The result of the Taiwan elections is uncontrollable, but the mainland is firmly in control of the consequences and influence of Taiwan elections.

New Beijing airport shows continued infrastructure boom

Improving its people's livelihood is always a major part of a country's economy. Developed countries should not be envious of China's economic growth. They cannot stop China's development. Cooperation with China is the wisest approach.

US Congress, secessionists deceive HK

Hong Kong is not a country. Hong Kong has no major political disputes, and life in Hong Kong is freer than in Western societies. Western anti-China forces and Hong Kong's extreme opposition have politicized the city. This is the new shackles that Hong Kong must shake off.

Farce hearing shows US hypocrisy

The US economic crackdown has not shaken China, nor will it determine the future of Hong Kong. Anyone who misunderstands this misunderstands the era and the world.

US has no right to arbitrarily convict Iran

Trump wants to be a president who can reinvigorate the American economy. It's widely believed he has no interest in wars. But certain forces in the US are pushing Washington to use military power. It's hoped they can be restrained instead of being allowed to dictate the US.

Abandoning Taiwan reflects a trend

The Solomon Islands has cut its “diplomatic relations” with the island of Taiwan and switched to Beijing. This is the sixth country Taiwan has lost as a “diplomatic ally” since Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen took office. There are only 16 “allies” left for Taiwan.

HK needs stronger common interests

Hong Kong has broad space for profit distribution and cultural diversity, as long as the city is politically stable. To treasure Hong Kong's rule of law is to treasure Hong Kong's future.

China's new measure extends positive interaction with US

China announced on Friday that it will exempt some US agricultural products, including soybeans and pork, from additional tariffs on US goods. The move came after the US announced a postponement to additional tariffs on Chinese goods effective on October 1. The two countries are preparing for the 13th round of China-US high-level trade consultations in early October. Before that, exchange of goodwill between the two sides can help create good vibes for making progress in the consultations.

US disgraces world since 9/11 attacks

The 9/11 attacks were a huge tragedy. It is hoped that Washington's political elites recall how the world sympathized and helped the US in 2001, and think about how the country has acted since then.

Washington has no right to define HK's high degree of autonomy

China has the ability to move forward getting rid of US interference. Hong Kong's special custom status is not a boon the US gives the city. It is mutually beneficial in nature. The city's future will depend on how strong China is, and not on US attitude toward Hong Kong. "One country, two systems” must be practiced jointly by the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong. It won't be defined by the US.

US attempts to woo Europe doomed to fail

Some US political elites have wishful thinking to start a cold war with China. This is against the globalization era. They are facing a strong, peaceful and open China with huge potential. Washington will only isolate itself by advocating China containment and forcing allies to follow the US suit.

HK won't top Merkel's China trip agenda

We believe that when Merkel raised the Hong Kong affairs in Beijing, she was perfunctory. Hong Kong will never top the agenda of her trip. Merkel's words on Hong Kong will not affect exchanges between China and Germany.
