The so-called CPC threat theory is an international distortion of the CPC system, and also a deliberate denial of China's development.
Editor's note: Some countries and regions in the world have been exploring resuming international exchanges as they have vaccinated a certain percentage of their population. For example, China has been negotiating with some partners to mutually recognize health certification for travelers. Seven EU countries have launched a digital vaccine passport system to allow their residents to move freely across the bloc. The US has also eased travel recommendations for more than 110 countries and territories, including Japan ahead of the upcoming Olympics.
Today, China can look at the world on an equal footing. It means that China's major-power diplomacy with Chinese characteristics will keep evolving.
The reason that we can learn something from China is because Europe is not doing a great job serving the interest of its people.
Washington's attempts to establish a base in Afghanistan's periphery could help the hegemonic force sustain its influence on the Afghan situation, but will not contribute to ease the situation for everyday Afghans.
Although Biden tries to be different from Trump, his acts are still in line with the Trump doctrine of "America First." In fact, "America First" has long been the US diplomatic tradition. The Biden administration will maintain the selfishness of the "America First" posture without contributing to or considering other countries' interests.
One has every reason to believe that the credibility of the BBC's report of ordinary people and the damage suffered by their interviewees could only be worse.
US officials like to brag about how many allies Washington has, but they forget one thing: The relationship between the master and his servants is not an alliance.
Since the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Warsaw Pact, NATO has lost its reason for existence.
Even though the US and Russia are at odds with each other, they still share common interests on some international issues. There is room for cooperation on matters such as Middle East issues, the balance of global strategic stability, global counter-terrorism, and climate change. Of course, these interests are also closely related to China and are in the interests of both China and the US.
The issue of the Indigenous peoples is a highly political issue in Canada's politics. Every government, be it at the local or federal level, usually puts the issue on the agenda, but it's not certain how much the government could do with it. After all, the issue doesn't receive enough attention from the government.
Climate change, above all global problems, should remind all of us that mankind shares a common future and also existential threats. Today, more than ever, it is necessary to build an international community based on rules of responsibility, solidarity and not greed.
A few words of Trump won't stir US politics today and Trump won't really take White House "sooner than you think."
China and Russia have a century-long tradition of cooperation against common threats. By simultaneously putting pressure and suppression against Russia and China, America is pushing Moscow and Beijing to form a close relationship.
What gives the CPC life and energy is its political cognition and strategic determination that are highly self-aware, self-reflective, and self-confident. It takes stock of its political traditions and cultural temperament - putting theory into practice and taking root in reality.
Regarding the Indo-Pacific, Washington believes its rules are the only ones to be abided by. Anything else that is not favored by the US is regarded by the US as "illegal." This is typical national selfishness with US characteristics.
In the long run, it will not be China getting isolated from the world, but the US isolating itself from the world.
China has always been following the principle of non-interference in others' internal affairs. This has and will not change. Yet a new trend in China's innovative diplomacy based on the principle is emerging - constructive engagement on hot spot issues in China's neighboring countries.
The US is the only country in the world that has not ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Using child labor is not only a proof of the US' gross violation of labor rights, but also proof of its double standards on human rights.
Alliance is the evil weapon of hegemony. This is a common consensus reached among most countries, and one of the founding missions of the United States of America.
The West is making a fuss with population because they don't believe China can overcome the problems they have failed to address. They want to prove their superiority through crises in China.
The so-called “Uyghur Tribunal” is a puppet show.
The White House recently released a so-called statement on the investigation into the origins of COVID-19. In the statement, which is a little more than 300 words, "Intelligence Community" (IC) is mentioned six times, but no trace of "science" is found.
Compared with the discourse power in the sense of national strength, the discourse power based on rights and the construction of a common “Discourse Community” is a higher level of pursuit – and it will undoubtedly help us to show our open-minded and inclusive image to the world. At present, in the face of the Western discourse hegemony, China must pursue and enhance its power and ability of speech. But we will never fall into the trap of the Western discourse power.
On Tuesday evening Joe Biden became the first American President to acknowledge the Tulsa Massacre, where in 1921 a mob of white nationalists in Oklahoma, including the police, massacred an estimated 150-200 African American residents and burnt down their properties, injuring 800 more and with the authorities imprisoning over 6,000.
For political purposes, the US side continues to cross the moral bottom line, maliciously concocting conspiracy theories and spreading misinformation, which has fueled an anti-science trend, exacerbated racial discrimination, and undermined the global fight against the pandemic.
US decoupling from China would divide the world. However, will this lead to a situation that the US does not even anticipate. Some industries and the countries that depend on these industries in China may decouple from the US in the future. This cannot be decided by the US holding up high the banner of ideology.
While upholding the free trade system, China and India should start with bilateral relations, deeply engage in the global value chain, and expand multilateral trade in Asia.
Be it combat capabilities or number of troops, the PLA has an absolute advantage in the Taiwan Straits. Therefore, it is not surprising to see Chinese military fans and netizens show their confidence in their jeers toward Maier's statement. However, in the contrast, young Taiwan people are reluctant to join the army. Their morale is also not high. This is a big difference.
It seems that some U.S. officials indulge in coming to a conclusion and then finding arguments for the conclusion in tracing COVID-19 origins.
During the 74th World Health Assembly scheduled from May 24 to June 1, the international community generally looked forward to heightening global anti-epidemic cooperation so as to defeat the virus and resume economic growth at an early date.
One could perhaps be forgiven for thinking that Canada, with its long and disgraceful history regarding its own indigenous citizens, would be inward focused when it comes to human rights cases. But somehow, despite the country's continued failure to properly address the rights of one million of its own citizens, the Canadian government continues to prioritize widespread criticism of other countries, around the globe.
The rise of China has contributed very significantly to the development of the world in the last decades, and the CPC has been central to this contribution.
To what degree Manila can be used to check China has become a yardstick for Washington to evaluate the value of the Philippines. This reflects that the US regional strategy has been on a track that focuses on China-US competition and a crackdown on China. When an ally is judged by whether it cooperates with the suppression of China, this is also an indication of a distortion of the US regional policy.
Australia-New Zealand bilateral relations and cooperation are the main content of this statement, and China-related issues are obviously not a major part of it – as some Australian media have sensationalized for obvious political purposes.
China's focus of attention should be on cementing ties with other Central and Eastern European countries, and preventing the US from sowing a discord.
The research into the impact of infectious diseases on the rise and fall of major powers alters the patterns of international relations theories. It further tests the wisdom and theoretical innovation levels of international relations scholars too.
The US would not be capable to divide Moscow and Beijing, since they understand opposing US pressure together is their naturally overlapping interest, which makes their ties steadfast and untouched by any global political turbulence.
If China-US competition escalates, New Zealand will to some extent be influenced. After all, if the largest two countries in the world are engaged in total confrontation, no other country will have the ability to keep a neutral stance.
There is no one in sight in American politics who seems likely to match Nixon in his knowledge of foreign affairs or awareness of the requirements of statesmanship and can break the ice and improve relations with China at present.
The US does not really care about its allies' comprehensive interests - it simply traps them into a predicament.
The US has a notorious record of not protecting labor rights and fair work. According to relevant reports of international labor organizations, systematic violation of labor rights exists in the US, a country with the worst performance among major developed countries.
On this basis, we can calmly and actively manage divergences with Washington to avoid a minor incident sparking a war. US hostility toward China is burning. We must use our strength, and consequences that Washington cannot afford to bear if it takes risky moves, to keep them sober.
While paying attention to the development of US-South Korea ties, China should also remain restrained, rational and tolerant toward South Korea. Seoul is willing to develop relations with Beijing. This is beneficial for both sides.
Beijing still has room to cooperate with Washington on the Middle East issue, and the core measure to end the conflict is through multilateralism under the UN framework. As Washington engages less and less in Middle East affairs, some Western media outlets are trying to create this narrative: China's involvement in solving the Afghanistan issue and the Palestine-Israel conflict is aimed at competing with the US. This is a trap we should be wary of.
In a war, the small island of Taiwan would erupt into a battleground with an intensity unknown since the world wars. It is all about the US striving to maintain its hegemonic reach during a period of decline in global influence.
China used to be too passive. We can act in a more high-profile way in this regard. The US has an ugly record of biological warfare in its history, and China has every reason to doubt it.
While Biden resorted to personal connections by holding Floyd's family at the White House on Tuesday, his administration is downplaying the political goals once articulated loud and clear. They have been pretty experienced in this regard and will continue to do so until the next Floyd case surfaces.
Anyone who has some knowledge of Chinese history would know what food and clothing mean for the Chinese people. The frequent great famines represent an indispensable chapter in Chinese history. In children's books published in the US over the past two or three decades, Chinese people were depicted as pale and thin. This demonstrates their limited understanding overall.
Lithuania has gone too far that it has almost touched all the red lines of China, leaving itself no way out. Its moves are an act of completely taking sides with the US in politics.
The world has really changed. Many people and things of the US that we saw as examples in the past have been gradually losing their halo, with their real mediocre quality being exposed. To be honest, I wish they can continue to be examples, but they failed to perform up to standard. Their moral and professional standards do not match their reputation
The American ideas, culture and political model helped form many of Brazil's political and social structures and no wonder Brazil and the US have the worst rates of infection and death
Will Washington-Taiwan relations be affected if Taiwan cannot get expected assistance from the US in the epidemic fight? Taiwan knows the US won't sincerely help it, but it fools itself into believing the US will support it at any time. There is a dilemma facing the island.
As for Xinjiang, many foreigners are concerned about: Is Xinjiang chaotic? Is Xinjiang very poor? Are there any abuses? Are there any restrictions on traveling to Xinjiang? Any foreign friends are welcome to visit Xinjiang. I believe the answer will be the same as what I have introduced.
The US is a smart and experienced global player, understands this option very well, and therefore is creating coalitions from dependent countries in order to weaken their strategic competitors by their hands. In China, this strategy is called “Kill with a borrowed knife.” The US has its own coalitions, while Russia and China do not. And this is a strategic advantage for Washington.
The US' disorderly and irresponsible withdrawal from Afghanistan to relieve itself from the burden of the war has messed up the country and the region. Meanwhile, it has treated the endeavors of other countries and regional organizations to foster stability as an eyesore. The world has now known the US' petty mind well. They can see what awful mess it has left.
For both Beijing and Moscow, there is no other choice: either to yield to the West or to join hands to contain the West's ambitions. Both Russia and China are equally firm on this point.
For decades, the sky of Kabul has not been lit up by kites, but flares and smoke. The latest pall came from a blast that cost 85 lives, mostly young schoolgirls. At a time when the American troops are pulling out of Afghanistan, the pain and sorrow endured by the Afghan people continues after 20 years of the US invasion. A disorderly and irresponsible withdrawal by the US may turn the longest war into a forever war, with the agony and despair lasting forever.
There is an age-old riddle throughout US history: Which comes first, democracy or strategic interests? However, the US has always chosen the latter in critical moments.
Some Indian media outlets and politicians are requiting kindness with ingratitude. They have slandered China's help, tried to play the Taiwan card, attempted to sow discord between China and neighboring countries, and devilishly spread rumors and lies to discredit China.
These young people, who once longed for the US, are now disappointed with it. The American Dream has become a nightmare. China has become the new land of opportunity.
I hope that informed diplomats in Canberra realise that the current Australian government approach of being “tough on China” is more sloganeering than serious strategy, and doubling down on this doesn't serve the national interest.
Nonetheless, Australia regards anti-China moves as political correctness, and shows no signs of changing. Besides, Australia is constantly looking for other export markets, reducing its dependence on China and getting ready to “decouple” from China. The two countries' relations are facing the biggest challenge since the establishment of diplomatic ties.
As many developing countries are facing severe vaccine shortages, one of Taiwan's few remaining “allies” has warned in an interview with the Financial Times that it may switch its diplomatic allegiance from Taipei to Beijing to gain access to Chinese vaccines as access to vaccines was “much more urgent than anything else.”
Willingly or not, Washington has to admit to a balance of power. The rise of China will inevitably lead to a re-balancing of power in the region. Washington's will to maintain hegemony in the Western Pacific is one thing, but its capability is quite another. With China's military strength rising, the relative advantage of the US in the Western Pacific will gradually decrease. The US may keep weighing its strategic payout and gains. Still, a feasible choice will be to lower its expectation for gains.
One might expect that ethnic minorities groups would fare better during the epidemic in countries like India than in China, but the fact has been the contrary: In the US, UK, and India minorities are overrepresented among the victims.
It is up to the Americans to feel and judge the resilience of their democracy. But given what has happened in the US, other countries will question the White House's qualification of pointing an accusing finger at their domestic affairs in the name of democracy.
The Afghans are again victims for such political gambits. And the violence has just started. Even during the ceasefire, many innocent lives perished.
Any attempt by the US to incite and utilize China's neighbors to stir up troubles for China will not easily be carried out as Washington wishes. China is constantly upgrading its comprehensive national strength and military capabilities. It has the determination and confidence to defend its national territorial sovereignty, development interests, and national security with practical actions.
As the threat from terrorist groups has been greatly reduced for the US, now the country does not consider counterterrorism to be its top priority. Both the US counterterrorism strategy and cooperation with China have become less important. Instead, Washington's policy focuses now how to use released terrorists to interfere with China and undermine it.
Those who have violated the law should be brought to justice and punished by law. Lai has been convicted for violation of Hong Kong law, charged with collusion with a foreign country or with external elements to endanger national security and conspiracy to obstruct the course of justice.
If Quad members expand their coordination to economic sphere and take measures that substantially hurt China, the latter will certainly take countermeasures.
We all know that even in an ideal environment keeping peace agreements is a difficult task. Unfortunately, we are not close to an ideal environment. There are many risks and obstacles that could derail this process and we could lose a precious opportunity for peace. We have to brace ourselves for a bumpy road and will step on it patiently to reach a lasting peace.
The peace lovers of the world should unite to oppose hegemonism, promote genuine multilateralism and safeguard world peace. Humanity still faces threats to peace in the 21st century. Over the past 20 years, the wars launched by the US have caused huge disasters around the world. All countries have the responsibility to condemn the perpetrators of these disasters.
Societies in the Islamic world as a whole resent the US, and this is a long-term national security challenge for the US.
Whether or not India buys vaccines from China is a "political decision," but whether China will sell vaccines to India is not. Instead, it is about humanitarianism, and it is business.
At present, the majority of Chinese people, especially the youth, have awakened. They are “woke.” They have spontaneously stood out to proclaim and defend what is right and just, while refute and oppose what is wrong and evil. They want to tell the world what the real China is like. As history goes, people like them will stand out to take their responsibility – generation after generation.
The US disengagement in the Middle East will be a long process. It is too early to tell how long this process might take. US plans will be derailed by regional issues. At the same time, this may distract US attention from other regions.
US political ecology is seriously ill. No figure, who can cure the sick politics, is in sight, and political weirdos keep emerging. This is causing chaos on US soil. The US looks like Germany before World War II – aggressive politicians are hyping up populism and leading the country to dangerous decisions. This is the pressing humiliation that the Americans should confront.
What are some ways Western countries can view their relations with a peacefully rising China? Why do dialogues between Western countries and China always seem difficult? Kerry Brown shared his opinions on these issues with Global Times reporter Sun Wei.
Judging from the current situation, Britain and France following the US on some issues is only a short-term strategy. If China performs well in dealing with China-US relations and its policy toward Europe, both Britain and France will be relatively restrained and their involvement in the Indo-Pacific region will be very limited.
When the US is in a predicament of choices, its hegemony in the Western Pacific can hardly be sustained.
The cooperation between China and Japan can promote a sense of connectivity in the region. Therefore, it can accelerate regional integration in East Asia and the Asia-Pacific region, and push regional prosperity to a higher level.
Beijing and Moscow are important forces to advance world peace. Chinese and Russian foreign ministries have already called on both sides of the conflict to exercise restraint.
The curtain of the Kissinger era is falling. Yet if the US sticks to the path of comprehensive competition with China without enough restraint, strategic misjudgment will occur, leading to severer confrontation.
Almost 200 years after colonization, Australia remains the only country in the British Commonwealth that has never signed a treaty with its Indigenous people. Its human rights debate has always been political.
When Europe criticizes China's human rights, there's hypocrisy to this. Why don't they criticize the human rights violations by Israel against the people of Palestine? Europe doesn't have a problem with this. If they're not going to treat everyone the same, it's not going to apply the same rules to everybody. Then their criticism of China has no value.
As long as Westerners seek truth from facts and base themselves on the actual situation of the East and the West, they will always have an accurate cognition of China's media and public opinion.
Imperialist states and powers always need external threats to justify their undemocratic practices. Their external enemy, first of all, is China, because it's the real coming superpower. And secondly, Russia.
The COVID-19 outbreak will undoubtedly prompt countries to reflect on their own management systems and then make continuous adjustments and reforms to better prepare themselves for similar public health incidents in the future. The adjustments and reforms in fact have already begun, which will eventually decide the direction of global cooperation in multiple areas such as public health.
If the Quad really wants to bring Bangladesh in, then Dhaka has to weigh the damage the joining would cause to its economic development and national security.
We need to create a practical and effective communication mechanism between China and the US. This should also be something that both militaries can adhere to. The establishment of such a mechanism can prevent miscalculations between the two sides. In this way, they can take a coordinated position on many issues to avoid possible conflicts.
The West is poised to contain China, and will continue to exploit India's usefulness. It has no other alternative in the Indo-Pacific region. Moreover, the feud between China and India is always there – the border disputes between the two will not be solved in a short time. And India's hostility toward China will remain.
Currently, the situation in the South China Sea is complex. The present stability in the region is relative and fragile. A wise choice for countries in the region is to cooperate. Only in this way, they can find more common interests, hedge the factors that might result in turmoil and constantly improve stability.
Currently, China is restraining its growth through green, clean and low-carbon development. This is the new model of a civilization's rise. It is also a fresh evolution of world civilization. But I wonder whether Western public opinion can understand it.
Without healing the wounds of its own system, Washington's global leadership will eventually be jeopardized.
History demonstrates that China has a remarkable ability to reinvent itself in a manner that no other country or civilization has succeeded in doing; a testament to the strength, resilience and dynamism of Chinese civilization and its governing capacity.
The most important thing is to let people not only earn money, but also make more money.
Australian hawks could play with their war drums, but they'd better also listen to the bell of justice, which always tolls for war mongers.
Every country should keep being open and inclusive and should adhere to free trade. This is the way for humanity to get over this crisis. If the EU and India want to create barriers in a confrontational way and to form small circles, the outcome will be no good to anyone - neither for themselves, nor for the recovery of the global economy.
