As NYC struggles to fight segregation, diversity by decree doesn't work

Decreeing diversity will not work. The people have to be empowered and motivated to do it themselves. The top-down approach could actually make things worse by inadvertently reaffirming the significance of skin color and differences in religion and wealth. That could just build resentment, leaving only the policies' architects believing in their success.

Senator Rubio blind to fact that Tibet is a part of China

Refusing the fact that Tibet is part of China, Rubio-like Westerners have no interest in knowing a real Tibet.

HRW's criticism of China is a lie

People like Roth should go deep into a huge society like China and really understand what is going on there and what people really care about. The likes of Roth should seriously study the world, not arrogantly represent the world.

It explains why China still perceives the existence of a West made of Europe and the US, even if the transatlantic relationship is less solid than it was in the 1990s.

Will India miss chance offered by Myanmar?

Apparently, as Myanmar develops, China and India will have more opportunities of cooperation in the country. But if New Delhi weighs too much the strategic balance, it may lose more chance to participate in Myanmar's growth, and thus cannot share the fruits of common development.

Xi's Myanmar visit will boost Paukphaw ties

Even though protectionism and unilateralism are rising, China and Myanmar are still injecting positive energy into win-win cooperation. The long-term mutual support between both countries fully explains the true meaning of “Paukphaw” or brotherhood. Xi's visit will endow a deeper connotation of the times into this term.
