Do China-India relations need a reset?

The resolution of the border issue may calm down the temperature. But I believe the understanding on other regional and global issues will continue to determine whether India-China relations will be malevolent, benevolent or beyond the binary of friendship and animosities.

US should stop media war against Chinese press

It is very regrettable that the deterioration of China-US relations has impacted the work of the media of the two countries in each other. Neither Chinese nor the US media should bear the blame for escalating tensions between the two countries.

Poor COVID handling, selfishness leaves US off EU safe travel list

The EU extending its travel ban over visitors from the US is mainly out of the bloc's disappointment over the US' mishandling in controlling the novel coronavirus pandemic. In a bid to win reelection, President Donald Trump blindly demanded to reopen economic and social activities while the disease still raged unabated. This likely will lead to more infections and deaths.

Australian cyber-security outcry is hypocritical

Frankly speaking, China has been a victim of cyberattacks and espionage and a target of Western countries' infiltration. But China doesn't often openly accuse others of what it has suffered. Instead, Beijing has been calling for global cooperation to safeguard international cybersecurity.

Neighborhood first or coercive diplomacy: What India wants

However, experts also wondered: How India will pursue it neighborhood first policy in the presence of “coercive diplomacy?” As it was not fashionable nor in the interests of New Delhi's Western partners, nobody debated it or tried to decode it. BJP and Indian elites perceived it as an opportunity and started to pursue the agenda of a Greater India. It started to interfere with regional countries under the slogan of “Akhand Bharat.”

Neither divorce nor decoupling realistic in China-US relations

Both the decoupling or divorce theories, after all, seem like China and the US are playing game of chicken to see which side will blink first. This is childish and naive.

China will not tolerate US meddling in domestic HK affairs ever again

The US knows well that the recent move made on Hong Kong will hurt its own interests. But given current US administration's zero-sum mind-set, Washington will carry out whatever measures which it believes will throw a punch to Beijing, US largest long-term rivalry in Washington's belief, no matter how much US interests will be battered during the process.

Cultural wars and US identity crisis loom with anthem and flag

Whether the US is prospering or receding depends not on how powerful their weaponry is, or how developed their technology and economy are. Instead, it will relate to how unified they are through self-identification, common values, and national identity.

Trudeau wrongly sees Meng case a short-term problem

Canada's 'microphone diplomacy' will be to no avail

There is no conflict between China and Canada over the two sides' core interests. Yet given the economic and trade between them, differences in people's beliefs and Canada's own calculations over what to do as a middle power, China has not factored into Ottawa's thinking as a central player. That being the case, continuous diplomatic tensions will occur.
