US talk of Hong Kong a nothingburger: Global Times editorial

Fighting the national security law for Hong Kong is not a universal value and cannot withstand serious scrutiny. Isn't national security the top priority for each and every country?

West legally wrong to object to HK security law

The HKSAR is a legal and sovereign component of China, with its Basic Law constitution (and specified autonomies) that are willed by the NPC, which issues such formal powers as China's central legislative body. Hong Kong has designated autonomy, but it is not something "independent" of China. It is legally and constitutionally part of China.

'Wolf warrior' diplomacy a US trait: Global Times editorial

In terms of “wolf warrior”, the US has peaked in its diplomacy. Just look at how many countries are being sanctioned by the US, in how many places is the US stationing its troops and how many countries' internal affairs are being interfered with by the US?

A pragmatic work plan for China and beyond

National security law a 'death knell' for US intervention in HK: Global Times editorial

Will a national security law that is to be implemented in Hong Kong undermine the “one country, two systems” principle? Before answering this question, we'd like to ask: Which country does not have national security laws? Which country would allow its administrative regions to become a void of national security where some internal forces collude with foreign forces and jeopardize national security?

US sanction card over HK won't intimidate China: Global Times editorial

Hong Kong belongs to China, not the US. The latter has only two choices when it comes to the city: be a friendly cooperator, or stay away. China will never offer the US a third option.

6.6% defense budget increase to secure China's interests; spending more efficient than US

The US is also increasing its defense budget, but it has not helped the country rein in the COVID-19 epidemic.

National security legislation offers overdue remedy for HK: Global Times editorial

Chinese mainlanders support Hong Kong in maintaining its political system and unique social style. It is unnecessary for Hong Kong to exercise what the Chinese mainland possesses. It is foreseeable that HKSAR national security legislation would serve the city's best interests and provide a better future for the “Pearl of the Orient.”
