Surveys see China-India estrangement

Tensions between China and India have escalated to frightening heights since June. How do Chinese scholars assess the trajectory of China-India relations? What prompted these constant provocations from India against China?

The Global Times now presents these exclusive results, together with statistics from an earlier survey launched by the Global Times and the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations among 1,960 Chinese from August 17-20.

Story of China's comeback invigorating

Western media and observers tend to analyze a static China through microscopes. But when they realize China's cataclysmic changes over a long period, they are shocked by the enormity of the country and thus feel threatened. Such biases expose the intellectual inertia and ideological shackles of many Westerners.

Ball in India's court after high-level meeting over border issues

If the border issues can evolve in a positive direction, the deteriorating China-India ties will be gradually stabilized. However, it will be difficult for the two countries to restore relations in the short term, especially to the level they reached at the Chennai meeting in 2019.

Indian army gains no advantage from border clashes with China

Let me brief on what I know about the situation on the China-India border. Based on what I know, in the past two days, the border area has returned to tranquility, maybe temporarily, especially the situation at Pangong Lake. Apparently, the meeting between Chinese and Indian defense ministers and the one between foreign ministers played a positive role in cooling down the situation.

Media, think tanks must stick to truth, rather than ideology, about COVID-19

Unfortunately, Washington refuses to listen. American society has been deeply influenced by the Trump administration, while US diplomacy and soft power have been destroyed by “the worst secretary of state in history” Mike Pompeo. If there is a new cold war or even a hot war between China and the US, it will be a greater disaster for humanity. Think tanks and the media all over the world need to find ways to promote China-US cooperation, rather than provoke the struggle between the two countries.

Why China manages to develop and rise despite talent outflow

The US needs to ask itself: Nowadays, how many talents worldwide will be less likely to do their research and contribute their wisdom in the US? Can it still provide better education, better jobs and better quality of life? The US had better not be too self-centered and narcissistic.
