Without reflecting, Australia can be walking into the dark


If Canberra cannot reflect on its previous moves against China and make adjustments, improving China-Australia relations will be far from visible. At that time, Australians will know how it feels like to walk into the dark.

Five Eyes decays into US fan club, lapdog: Global Times editorial

Take a look at what is happening in the Five Eyes countries. The US and the UK are both among the countries hit hardest by COVID-19, and both have deep domestic conflicts and long-term uncertainties. Canada and Australia, with their small populations and vast land resources, are more like “Western slackers” than the European countries who have strong crisis awareness. They all need to see where their crisis lies and who their real enemies are. Otherwise, they will always have a misconception that China is poisoning them whenever they are not feeling well. How absurd such a logic is!

China is balancing setbacks yet standing straight up

China, as the world's No.2 economy, is doing quite well balancing its “setbacks” and managing to “stand tall.” The proof of this assertion is: by strategically forging ahead, China has managed to keep growing stronger.

G20 summit could be positive despite US' shadow

Even if some positive factors are not included in the final outcome document, this does not mean the upcoming G20 will be a failed meeting. China, for one, will certainly play a positive role at the meeting.

Japan, Australia continue to pursue containment of China despite RCEP

History cannot affirm current US' China policy: Global Times editorial

Pompeo's efforts to create a China-US confrontation run counter to the interests of the American people. He puts world peace in peril, but will not be followed by the whole US and the Western world. No report can make up for the US' China policy, nor will it leave any historic legacy. The document released by the US State Department's Office of Policy Planning will end up being pieces of wasted paper.

US finds it difficult to draw others to its anti-China camp

Dividing camps by ideology and engaging in a zero-sum game is an outdated Cold War mind-set. Win-win development is the theme of the era, and playing geopolitical tricks will be marginalized. With such a mentality, the US can hardly find followers.

Biden is keen on regional multilateralism and is likely to take a more positive view of APEC than Trump. But in general, the US will not take it as seriously as it used to.
