China's image as 'peace builder' is highlighted again: Global Times editorial

Each successful practice of the GSI attracts more like-minded partners and continually validates the ancient Chinese saying: "Virtue is not left to stand alone, and he who practices it will have neighbors."

In the Arctic, where no trouble exists, the US busies itself with imagined concerns. The US' most skilled trick is to “cry wolf" in peaceful regions, especially when promoting the "China threat theory." The US' ultimate goal is to become ...

GLOBAL MINDS

For the US, the Asia-Pacific region becoming a “powder keg” is the ultimate means of victory. The ruling elite in the US seems to be trapped in an extreme fear of China. For the US, as long as it can defeat China and emerge as the ultimate “winner,” it is willing to risk the destruction of the whole of Asia through war.

EDITOR'S PICK
When US cannot compete economically, it moves to military confrontation

NATO only talks about war and confrontation. NATO is a tool of the US. And the US is seeking to use NATO to bolster its weakened position in the Pacific and to get NATO expanded into the Pacific.

    In 1978, China made the decision to open up and turn outward. This has been fundamental to China's extraordinary economic transformation over the last four decades and more. The turn outward, we should remind ourselves, represented a rejection of the "socialism in one country" thinking that had shaped Chinese policy after the 1949 revolution. The new approach was hugely consequential. China came to see itself as an integral part of the global economy, rather than, as before, a part of the socialist bloc, or, more narrowly even, pretty much on its own. China's new approach was to measure itself against the world, and, more crucially, the advanced economies of the US, Europe, and Japan.

  • Enhancing consumer power helps strengthen China's initiative in global economic governance

    Pork is a microcosm of China's continuously rising consumer power since its reform and opening up. In an era where consumption is paramount, greater import capacity means greater bargaining power in international trade, which is especially important for China as a manufacturing power.

  • Wolf in sheep's clothing

    The US has never been a friend of the Ukrainians or the Filipinos. We do not like you. If we liked you, we would not treat you this way. We are using you, you are just a tool. When this tool is no longer useful, we will abandon you, usually after a war that leaves you devastated.

  • See the real China beyond Westernized misconceptions

    China still amazes us each time we visit! Starting from 1987, studying Chinese at Beijing University, I thought I'd seen enough phenomenal changes. I later worked as an English-language expert in Beijing, last in 2009 at Foreign Language Press. The surprises do not cease. Growing up since age two in Toronto, Canada, then living in Beijing, and in Sri Lanka with my husband, I had grown more familiar with places other than my ancestral home in Kaiping, Guangdong Province. I was truly overcome by the breathtaking changes when I visited family villages this year.

  • Why did latest US statement remove the reference to the illegally grounded warship at Ren'ai Jiao as the Philippines' 'longstanding outpost'?

    On March 5, 2024, after the US State Department issued a statement regarding China's Ren'ai Jiao (also known as Ren'ai Reef) in the South China Sea, I pointed out that the sudden addition in the previous statements, which recognized the Philippines' illegally "grounded" warship at Ren'ai Jiao as a "longstanding outpost," is a significant symbol showing that the US is supporting the militarization of the South China Sea and undermining the current peaceful situation in the region, as disclosed by an investigative piece by the Global Times.

    China has never interfered with any country's normal actions in the South China Sea. But if any action intends to infringe on China's sovereignty and rights and jeopardize the peace and stability of the region, then China, of course, will resolutely control and curb it. The way out for Manila is to return to the right path of consultation and dialogue to resolve differences, rather than to go back and forth with evil ideas.

  • US expands military footprint in Middle East to control energy markets, boost arms sales: ex-Israeli peace negotiator

    The UN Security Council adopted a resolution aimed at reaching a comprehensive ceasefire deal in three phases to end the war in Gaza on Monday. According to the resolution, phase one includes an “immediate, full and complete ceasefire with the release of hostages including women, the elderly and the wounded, the return of the remains of some hostages who have been killed, and the exchange of Palestinian prisoners.” The resolution urged both parties to fully implement the terms of the proposal “without delay and without condition.” How will the resolution impact on the current Palestine-Israel conflict? Is the “comprehensive arrangement” sought by the US feasible?

There have been successful cases of consultations between China and Europe to resolve disputes in the past, and there is still a possibility of reaching a solution through negotiations, as was the case in 2013 with the solar trade dispute.

Following a horrific civil war, the violent trauma of Japanese aggression and a century of humiliation from Western powers, the people of China looked forward to a new beginning. Their country was impoverished, a peasant nation where the average annual earnings constituted a mere 49.7 yuan ($6.85), and the average life expectancy was just 35 years old in 1949.
