Tall tales won't help US win trade war

The Chinese side is obviously more realistic while the US is falsifying. This will, to a large extent, influence how the two countries digest the trade war impacts.

US' maximum pressure policy is useless

China's stance is clear-cut. It is willing to reach a deal but will never make concessions on issues of principle, nor trade its core interests. In contrast, the US' attitude is swaying. Driven by unrealistic anticipation, it has drifted between expressing optimism that exceeds the actual situation and arbitrarily waving the tariff stick. China has clarified its stance and will try to push the situation in a good direction. If the US is to play a roller coaster-style thriller game, it will bear the consequences.

Pompeo displays US insolence to Europe

The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in a speech at a London conference, almost imperatively asked Britain to change its attitude toward China and its telecom equipment company Huawei. He wants Britain to treat China like the Soviet threat to the West. He also quoted the example of former prime minister Margaret Thatcher in a speech in which he mocked current Prime Minister Theresa May without naming her. He said: “Would the Iron Lady be silent when China violates the sovereignty of nations through corruption or coercion? Would she allow China to control the internet of the future?”

Can Iran nuclear deal avoid collapse?

The undisguised overbearing and capricious manner of the US has affected the world. Such behavior is targeted at Iran today, and it may be another country tomorrow.

China won't flinch in face of tough-talking US

If Washington has its mind set on going back down the path of a trade war, then China will fight it to the end. China has always had a firm stand on a trade war: China does not want it; China is not afraid of it; China will launch it when necessary.

View risks of a trade war objectively

With strong leadership of the Communist Party of China and the institutional advantage of maintaining unity in the face of difficulties, China is fully capable of digesting and controlling the losses caused by the reduction of exports to the US. China doesn't want a trade war and hopes to reach an agreement as soon as possible. Washington shouldn't force China to strike back.

Pompeo stands in way of stable China-US relations

Officials such as Pompeo have made it difficult to form stable Sino-US relations. Dealing with ties between Beijing and Washington that may become more volatile in future has become quite a challenge.

Strong Chinese navy guarantee of South China Sea peace

US warships will continue to appear in the South China Sea. However, their voyage will have more symbolic meaning than actual significance.

Calmness is the best response to US' fluctuation in trade talks

It is certain that the Chinese society's expectation of a quick deal is not as high as that of American society. Even if talks fail, the impact on China will be controllable. Washington also desires an agreement, as damage brought about by the trade war is two way. Upgrading and maintaining a long-term trade war is by no means an option for which Washington hopes.

Xinjiang must maintain long-term stability

Xinjiang may not need to set the level of social security higher than other parts of the country. But it must stay basically stable and resolutely avoid large-scale terrorist activities that occurred in previous years. This will be the key indicator for a final evaluation of Xinjiang's governance outcomes at this stage.

US 'clash of civilizations' leads nowhere

Hence, fights between civilizations will never occur. Striking a balance between China and the US is in the best interest of the West and all other countries and regions around the world rather than siding with the US to contain China. The US Department of State led by Pompeo is trying to mislead the world, but the world is not as stupid as they think it is.

US anti-China policy against own interests

Former US vice-president and Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden recently said China is not "bad folks" and China is not "competition for us." His remarks have sent waves across the US. People from President Donald Trump to core members of his team, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have lashed out at Biden.

Huawei a touchstone for ties with China

The UK is in the quagmire of Brexit. UK-US relations will hardly bring more interests. China undoubtedly offers new motivation to the UK. China treats the UK frankly. The UK's final decision on Huawei will be a touchstone of how it treats China's interests.

New START talks cannot include China

China does not have to regard the US as an example in terms of nuclear weapons, which is also unrealistic. But China's nuclear force must be enough to deter US hawks' ideas of making strategic threats toward China, which should be the minimum for China's nuclear forces.

Superiority complex plagues US intelligence

"China has pioneered a societal approach to stealing innovation any way it can, from a wide array of businesses, universities, and organizations," FBI Director Christopher Wray said at an event on Friday in Washington. "Put plainly, China seems determined to steal its way up the economic ladder, at our expense," Wray said.

The times call for a successful BRI

Chinese President Xi Jinping delivered a keynote speech at the opening of the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF) on Friday. He introduced measures China will take to further expand its opening-up. Apart from widening access to capital markets and strengthening protection of intellectual property rights, China will not seek a trade surplus, will import more agricultural products and services and will not pursue currency devaluation that harms others.

BRI naysayers ridiculed by common sense and reality

BRI is a groundbreaking international endeavor for the 21st century. The initiative has shown such powerful growth that even the greatest of obstacles cannot block. BRI will never be talked down to, and those who choose to speak negatively about it will only harm their own reputation.
