US pressure on Aussies against China difficult to be ruled out in the short-run

Russia, West feud over WWII memories

Out of the need of realpolitik, the West can ignore historical truth, and in the post-truth era, the West can use its discourse power to hide the history. It is necessary to support fair evaluations of WWII.

India knows US won't help it achieve its goals

No matter how many ups and downs await the China-India border row and what moves the Indian side will make next, China's firm stance on border issues will not be shaken, that is, disputes should be resolved only through direct negotiations, which do not need any disturbance from external forces.

Cooperation key to China-EU ties: Global Times editorial

China does not pursue its interests to the extreme, nor does it demand a perfect bilateral relationship. China is willing to seek common ground while reserving differences. China avoids becoming enemies with other countries if they fail to be friends, and China focuses on doing its own things well when there are diplomatic problems.

Washington has repeatedly accused China of suppressing “freedom of speech.” However, US' move to restrict Chinese media outlets is inconsistent with its criteria of “freedom of speech” as protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution. Suppressing Chinese media will restrain the Chinese people from gaining a clear and unbiased picture of what the US really is.

Washington desperately wants to start trouble overseas for selfish interests

The US, which is reeling from the novel coronavirus epidemic, desperately wants to see trouble in other parts of the world, and is thus inciting a fight with China in it. At this point, Asian countries need more wisdom and stronger capability to avoid falling into the US-designed trap. After all, no Asian country is willing to be Washington's cannon fodder.
