EU, China should bond over COVAX efforts despite US rancor

Predictably, China's participation in COVAX is unlikely to fundamentally reverse negative perceptions of China in Europe. After all, certain European politicians and media outlets will not stop criticizing China and casting prejudicial commentary. However, the differences between China and the EU should not affect joint efforts to fight COVID-19. As will be written in the history books, the COVID-19 pandemic is the worst global disease in a century. No country is immune to it. Right now, China and the EU should shelve their differences and strive to eliminate interference from third parties, especially the US. They should deepen cooperation to eradicate this plague, and firmly uphold the historical trend of economic globalization and multilateralism.

Washington unlikely to change Taiwan 'strategic ambiguity' to enrage Beijing

There is no doubt that Washington is clearly aware of the importance of the Chinese mainland. It will not take risks to break its ties with the Chinese mainland due to Taiwan, because the price is too high.

New generation of Japanese politicians needs vigilant watching

Japan's new generation of politicians is becoming more and more influential. This not only is related to the future development of Japan's internal affairs, but also may influence new factors for how Japan relates with its neighboring countries. After World War II, generations of Japanese political figures have had differing relations with China with many twists and turns. The influence of the new generation of politicians cannot be underestimated in terms of where they will take Japan's future policies – particularly on China.

US, India to remain strange bedfellows regardless of any military pact

With over 10 days before the US-India 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue between the foreign and defense ministers of the two sides, which will reportedly take place on October 26 and 27, some Indian media outlets have already started hyping up a deal to be signed – the Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement (BECA) for geo-spatial cooperation. They have a reason to cheer – the signing of the deal would mean the establishment of a basic military alliance between them.

China's coronavirus response boosts stability as US suffers from denial of reality

A lot has changed in a year, but it's clear that the denial, anger and stubborn refusal of many American pundits to accept China's success in curbing the coronavirus doesn't change reality. Taking public health seriously clearly not only has economic benefits, but political benefits too.
