  • China and Europe can be forces of stability amid global turbulence

    The 60th year of the Munich Security Conference (MSC) isn't easy. MSC Chairman Christoph Heusgen called on everyone to look for "silver linings" among the dark clouds. Indeed, pessimism is more likely to attract attention than problem-solving. Looking beyond Europe or the North Atlantic, China, a partner, a force for stability, rather than a rival or a threat, can help overcome the lose-lose dilemma.

It disguises this incremental form of repression as well-intended measures to protect public order and safety - but it is designed to protect only itself from criticism. This is Britain.

    It would be misleading to call NATO's ongoing exercise simply a war game because that evokes scenes of people in costume reenacting historic battles or modern armies charging about, field-testing their tactics and equipment.

  • UK's BNO visa scheme, nothing but a scam

    In January 2021, Britain offered British National (Overseas) (BNO) passport holders in Hong Kong the right of citizenship in the UK. When reflecting on the actions of the UK government over the past three years, it is difficult not to question whether the BNO visa scheme is a genuine promise or a deceptive scam.

  • Harassing Chinese students US self-inflicted damage

    China must further improve its economy and continuously expand its market size. This is the fundamental tool for us to counter the anti-China policies and actions of the US. In the long run, our market expansion must be faster than that of the US. This will be most detrimental to the radical political elites in the US. Strong development and market expansion speed will be the decisive factors in the comprehensive competition between China and the US.

    When more than 100 countries and international organizations have reiterated their support for the one-China principle and strongly opposed "Taiwan independence" right after the regional election on the island, the US had better think twice about what it will bring to itself and to China-US relations by changing the status quo across the Taiwan Straits.

  • Everyone should wake up to US' blame game in Red Sea, Ukraine crises

    Recently, the US asked China to "help" maintain the flow of Red Sea shipping. The US is currently in a state of conflict with Houthi rebels in Yemen. The cause of the conflict is a failure of the US to push for a ceasefire and peace negotiations in Israel, which has caused regional tensions and instability. The US and UK, in turn, have responded with a bombing campaign in Yemen. However, according to US officials, it is China who should apparently be making the peace.
