US freedom of religion card is a bullying tactic


Successful experiences that suit countries and societies should be cherished. Using religion as a political tool to slander another country is ideological bullying and has nothing to do with the fundamental principles of any so-called religious faith.

Canada should know it's facing a new China

Canada is still too reliant on its old alliance relationships. When it encounters a problem, rather than try to deal directly with China, it wants to push its old allies to deal with it. That's a sign that Canada has not changed its diplomatic approach to China's newfound importance in the world today.

Stronger China-Europe ties needed amid global uncertainty

China and Europe are under pressure and face increased risk created by US unilateralism and trade protectionism. Washington has used tariffs as competitive leverage against Beijing and there have been structural changes in China-US bilateral relations. China has since realized the trade conflict with the US could become a long-term issue.

US remains oblivious to China's trade war attrition stamina

The US has yet to experience anything positive from the trade war, and Washington's self-proclaimed early victory is an attempt at lying to oneself and a nation.  The pack of lies generated by the US is destined to be exposed. Truth and facts will continue to bother politicians in Washington more than anyone else.

Much potential remains for China's economy

China has enormous economic potential. There is still much room to reshape ordinary people's life, which is the core of the potential. That makes China one of the most promising major economies. Much remains to be done in unleashing its full potential.

Australian unease over China's outreach in South Pacific betrays envy

China does not oppose Australia's leading role and believes an innovative equilibrium of regional and international relations can be of practical significance. The BRI can serve as a channel to strengthen this region's connectivity and partnership, including that of Australia, with China's growing economy.

Some in US deserve 'racist disgrace' more than others

Some Western countries don't even know Xinjiang. Their criticism against China is only based on subjective judgments and biased reports. If China is indeed as horrible as they claim, how can the country earn the support of many Muslim countries?

Amid US hubris, Europe should raise its guard

From now on, new EU leaders and a new British prime minister will face an even more arduous task of handling relations with the US, because stable transatlantic relations are crucial for both Europe and the US. But conflicts between them cannot be solved easily. Volatility and uncertainty will permanently loom over Europe-US relations.

Why US is an onlooker in S.Korea-Japan row

Undulations in Japan-South Korea relations after the Cold War are not new. But this time the US seems to have no interest in playing peacenik between its two important allies in Northeast Asia. Some believe this can lead to long-term antagonism between the two countries.

Rationality should be anchor for China-US ties

China-US ties are haunted by misunderstandings. An accurate mutual understanding is the basis to reduce strategic mistrust between Beijing and Washington. The Chinese are aware of the differences between China and the US. The differences in politics and ideology are not the real thread of contradictions between China and the US or the West.

The 'Asian Age' and role of China and India

Chinese and Indian plans to develop connectivity and regional infrastructure should be better coordinated to minimize operational and governance costs. Neighbors will then see that these two countries can cooperate, as well as compete. This will be a valuable and new experience for all concerned.
