US 'long-arm jurisdiction' on gas project driven by insecurity

The US move reflects its bid to adopt an all-round "long-arm jurisdiction" on all countries across the world, including its allies, over politics, economy, diplomacy and security, neglecting the basic norms of international relations such as respect for sovereignty and regard for each other's choices.

Will US Space Force take hegemony to cosmos?

The international community can try to create pressure on the US to discourage it from setting up a space force. However, it may not be an ideal step. Even though the world sets up relevant international laws or mechanisms, the US can choose to turn a blind eye to them.

Russian resolution to fight cybercrime worthy of support

The West's so-called protection of freedom of speech is in fact an attempt to use the internet as a tool to interfere in other countries' internal affairs and disrupt other societies' stability. Their behavior will only foster cyberterrorism and extremism by creating conditions and opportunities for them.

With security as the core concern, Japan seeks help in quartet alliance

Whether it is the “Free and Open Indo-Pacific Strategy” or the “Free and Open Indo-Pacific Vision,” the main target of Japan's Indo-Pacific foreign policy is China. By making friends with other stakeholders, Japan can maintain its influence, make gains and balance China at the same time.

Eggvolution: No time for sexism in aging society

I think I've vented long enough about what it means to be single, the notion of family and giving fertility back to the people. I sincerely hope that policies can catch up with reality and be fair. There is no room for sexism and it needs to learn to evolve as well. It must not undermine all the current changes and efforts in boosting population for a nation that is aging.

Small cities offer better insight into China

I appreciate the international students who accompanied me. It is hoped that more of such opportunities to research small Chinese cities will be created for them by more universities. Chinese citizens should also look around in these small cities and learn more about the country, so that they can understand its difficulty of development and greatness.

India raises own version of Indo-Pacific to maximize interests

India has its own narrative of the Indo-Pacific based on its self-interest and intent. As a country that has sworn by the principle of non-alignment and now stresses strategic autonomy, if India follows the US Indo-Pacific strategy, it will not only jeopardize its pursuit of a major power, but also risk worsening ties with China.

US universities shouldn't incite ideological tension

American political scientist Francis Fukuyama's "end of history" theory has influenced a great number of Westerners, making them stubbornly believe Western liberal democracy is universal. As Western democracy is in decline, it's time for them to overcome their stereotyped views.

Trump's Central Asian strategy should seek major power cooperation, not conflict

Trump's new Central Asia policy will aim to seek greater US interests amid evolving regional international politics. This will create greater major-power regional competition, but there is still room for China, Russia and the US to maintain Central Asia prosperity and stability.

Bid to ease sanctions seeks relief for N.Korea

China and Russia believe that sanctions do not work. This has already been proved by history and facts, and we need a more effective way to solve the dilemma of denuclearization.

Gun ownership, deaths out of control in US

Massacres and shootings should be deemed a serious violation of human rights. In the world's most modern society, people's lives are threatened by unregulated guns. Isn't this the most severe human rights flaw? The US acts as the world's guard but turns a blind eye to its own human rights defects. People are forced to get used to a US where both modern and barbarous elements entangle in a weird way.

US Nord Stream 2 curbs won't weaken EU

The US has less moral authority and national power than it previously held. If Washington continues to abuse its sanctions, the entire world, including its allies, will become more averse to this superpower and will enhance its strategic independence and strengthen mutual interconnections among one another.
