Western pressure has no effect on China's governance in Xinjiang

China's governance in Xinjiang is practical and realistic. The country is sincere in helping people influenced by extremism. By contrast, some Western forces, driven by geopolitical factors, attacked China's governance in Xinjiang. But good prevails over evil. These forces can do nothing about Xinjiang even if they play all their cards.

Rationality continues to guide China-US trade talks

An old Chinese saying goes, “No discord, no concord.” Another says, “A good gain takes long pain.” After all the twists and turns of the past year, the two countries have achieved new understandings not only of each other's will and strength, but also a recognition for mutual benefit and fairness. Whatever the result, it should be accepted calmly.

Cindy Yang a gimmick of US partisan struggle

Nonetheless, we are sympathetic to Chinese-Americans living in the US. Yang's case displayed a deteriorating political situation for them in the US. Discrimination and prejudice against them will show up more frequently and they are bound to undergo more injustices. We hope they will be more cautious and take good care of themselves.

US hypocritical to criticize China human rights

In the past, we felt that the West, especially the US, was superior to us. But as China develops, we have seen the other side of the US – selfish, paranoid and unpredictable. We can just let much of the US criticism go. The annual human rights report is nothing but a fault-finding mess.

Europe's autonomy tested in Huawei case

Europe must have the courage to distance itself from the US while at the same time develop ties with China and Russia. The world is changing, and so should Europe's strategies. The continent should seek to maximize its interests instead of serving as an adherent of the America First doctrine.

The suspension will result in huge losses, but it's people's lives that matter more.

China's engagement with the world over the past decades has met with twists and turns. Even Chinese private companies like Huawei are experiencing unprecedented unfair treatment.
