No end in sight for Taiwan's 'diplomatic crises'


China's influence is rising and the one-China principle has become an international norm. Whatever strategy the Tsai authority adopts to boost its position in the global arena will only turn out to be a fruitless endeavor.

Tracking development: Railway is the key

From this perspective, although China's experience is hard to use for reference, it can be an important inspiration. The Belt and Road Initiative that China is promoting also spreads important ideas of how to realize industrialization.

Costco's opening in China defies US attempts at decoupling

As HK festers, questions aplenty for the West

So, will Hong Kong with support from the US-led West be an exception? Hardly. The US has already sought to use the Hong Kong protests as a bargaining chip in its strategic game with China. Hong Kong's special customs status with the US is also under threat from Washington. Hong Kong protesters may ask those Western politicians if the latter really treat them as advocates of peace or merely political tools.

South Korea GSOMIA withdrawal defies US foreign strategy

It's an essential component of US foreign policy to interfere with peace and stability throughout East Asia. The possibility that Japan and South Korea would sign a GSOMIA again in the future cannot be excluded. Should that happen, the decision should benefit regional peace and stability and promote the Korean Peninsula peace process, rather than harm the interests of a third party.

The truth about Hong Kong's autonomy

There are similarities and differences in the two societies' values. But the Chinese mainland most sincerely hopes all the best for Hong Kong and will grieve the most if the city suffers social turmoil. This is determined by the shared interests and strong cultural bond between the two sides.

Why bother with next G7 summit? Just call it off

It was reported that Trump suggested hosting 2020's G7 summit at his resort in Florida, but soon was mocked as trying to profit from the intergovernmental meeting. From our perspective, there is no need for the leaders to bother with the next gathering's location; simply calling it off might be a good option. After all, except for attracting visitors to the host cities, the G7 summit has little to be praiseworthy.

Inequality a first among equals at G7 summit

In short, although the G7 remains an important intergovernmental economic organization, estrangement is more than apparent. With various internal contradictions and the rise of emerging powers, the global influence of G7 as a whole and all its members is declining fast.

West will shed no tears for Hong Kong

Many Hongkongers are confusing right from wrong while Western public opinion constantly delivers the ideological energy that the radical protesters need. The West has shed no tears for Iraq, Syria and Ukraine, which had gone through similar hardships. Now, it is turning Hong Kong into the forefront of the struggle with China, and, as usual, they will shed no tears for the city's misery.
