Trust is the foundation for countries to get along with each other. Deliberately and arrogantly hurting trust will eventually make the US a loner and lose its leading position in the tide of globalization. What is really good for the US? Trump should figure that out carefully.
If the US wishes to restore its influence in Latin America, it must first of all show respect for others' sovereignty, instead of rude interference. It's time for Washington to consider lifting the sanctions as soon as possible. Otherwise, the reputation of the US will be further jeopardized.
China is well-prepared for a protracted war. If Washington insists on engaging in such a trade war, China will certainly not hesitate to fight back. But now, just let the US pay the painful price of its trade war.
China has been Indonesia's largest trading partner for many years. Stable China-Indonesia ties are a requirement for further development. The Indonesian government must be more vigilant in preventing anti-China nationalist sentiments from being used maliciously, which could cause incalculable losses to the country.
Emphasizing "America first," Trump has seldom provided Japan any benefits. But in the meantime, China-Japan ties have finally returned to the right track after twists and turns with emerging economic and trade potential. Does acting at Washington's beck and call prove rewarding for Tokyo? It's time for Abe to think this through.
The public spending of the US federal government and that of state and local governments function differently. Nowadays many states lack money to improve public services and Chinese products at reasonable prices are lending a helping hand. But if they don't want help, then let it be.
During the upcoming IISS Shangri-La Dialogue, China will make full use of the multilateral platform to make more friends and communicate with more leading figures of Asia-Pacific countries' defense departments and armies to build consensus, and make the best efforts to maintain regional stability and development.
Modi's reelection benefits the continuity of his policies toward China and the two countries' mutual trust. India is China's important neighbor and the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative has created beneficial results in South Asia. We hope New Delhi can join in the progress and work together with Beijing for the development of India and the region.
Beijing will grasp the general direction of the consultations instead of being bothered by some particular matters at certain times. The contest between China and the US rests on the negotiating skills and the determination of the political system. In terms of the capability of comprehensively countering the US' attacks, today's China is far more powerful than it was in the 1950s during the Korean War.
Relations between China and Russia began to strengthen during the years of former Russian President Boris Yeltsin, when Russia had good relations with the West. Neither side would compromise its relationship in order to please a third party.
The West didn't believe such cooperation could endure, because in the traditional Western view, the political ecology of Asian countries that favor strongmen will cause problems due to corruption and lack of transparency in cooperation. However, the truth is that cooperation improved governance and is in line with international norms. The cooperation between effective governments with executive capability will benefit the implementation of many projects, which will eventually boost people's livelihoods and the economy.
Meng is also former president of Interpol, but just like France's asylum, it cannot make him escape his investigation. Anybody who violates China's law will be punished and there should be no exception. The purpose of China's anti-corruption campaign is to build a clean and fair society for Chinese people and other countries should end their illusions about interfering in it.
We should have a sense of urgency and encourage some local authorities to make inspiring demonstrations. What we achieve will be our leverage to talk with the world: Development should not be suppressed and China invites participation.
Perhaps the world should no longer expect the US to shoulder the responsibility of a world leader and act in the interest of all humanity. As countries around the world begin to understand the urgency of the plastic pollution issue and assume their duty, the only thing on the mind of the US is its own self-interest.
China's system enables the country to concentrate on and prioritize national interests. China should make use of its institutional advantages and mobilize its resources to make breakthroughs in key areas such as AI, 5G and aerospace. More research funds and personnel can be ploughed into these fields. Simply being defensive is not enough for China to safeguard its interests anymore. By improving its competitiveness in the high-tech sector, China can switch from being defensive to active.
US warships will continue to appear in the South China Sea. However, their voyage will have more symbolic meaning than actual significance.
The scale of internet users in China is incomparable in the world. China has nowhere to draw lessons from in terms of regulating the internet. China is well aware of the tests it is facing from the development of the internet.
The hard-won China-Canada relations today need to be treasured.
