India lifting arms rules at border endangers its own security

India should be reminded that if it loosens controls on the border for troops, this could lead to armed conflict. Given India's underdeveloped infrastructure and logistical shortcoming, it will bear bitter consequences in the face of the well-equipped and highly capable Chinese People's Liberation Army.

West should seek fair stories and modernize its minds about China

The Chinese have the final say of what kind of a country China is. Western media might well be reminded that they should, and need as well, to report on China's changes with a more inclusive and open manner. Indeed, they might find inspiration and fresh understandings of China if they travel to Beijing's outskirts, to such suburban districts as Huairou, Miyun, or Yanqing.

India's betting with Washington and Canberra is a poor move

A country's ambition should match its own strength. To pursue the status as a major power and expand regional influence, a country's own national strength must be a decisive factor. No country can be great by relying on another country. A country may only hurt itself by opportunistically seeking ambitions that far exceed their actual national abilities.

De-escalating tensions on China-India border paramount

China doesn't want to escalate conflicts with India, but we have sufficient capacity to smash any provocations from the Indian troops.

The death of George Floyd and a continental congress

As long as African Americans live poorer lives for no reason other than their African origin, the US lacks the moral authority to sanction other countries for allegedly choking their minorities. That is the simple message delivered to the US in demonstrations in Tunis, Nairobi, and Cape Town in the last two weeks. It was also delivered in Budapest, London, Paris and many cities in the US.

Draft law on natl security will reassure most Hong Kong people: Global Times Editorial

A draft law on safeguarding national security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) made its debut on Saturday. One could reach the conclusion that as long as we view the draft in a fair and objective manner - Beijing sincerely hopes to maintain the "one country, two systems" principle; the purpose of enacting the law is to fix national security loopholes in Hong Kong, rather than depriving the city of its high degree of autonomy.
