Washington has a strong desire to control Europe, which is why Macron's emphasis on European strategic autonomy is seen as a form of "betrayal."
These politicians hope to get media attention, which essentially aims to earn political capital for themselves. They are tireless in pursuing their personal interests, which is a tragedy of American politics.
The PLA's exercises have created a strong sense of deterrence, which will eventually compress "Taiwan independence" into a hopeless black hole.
What will be the biggest highlight of Lula's visit? How can China and Brazil jointly uphold multilateralism and address rising global risks?
Facts repeatedly prove that the US, which believes in the principle of power, is not softer on its allies when it comes to using intelligence as a tool for blackmailing and coercion than it is toward a powerful "opponent."
Suppose Asia falls into the European security model. In that case, there will be no common security, but only balance by ganging up and building alliances, and the history of Europe shows that that balance will eventually be broken by contention or even war.
The US is unreliable. It is only a matter of time before the US abandons its allies at a critical moment.
China's ambitions and aspirations are different from the US'. But casting it as an enemy in a war seems to be both misleading and dangerous.
Europe has come to the moment when China is needed the most.
The warm atmosphere of French President Emmanuel Macron's visit to China has frustrated Washington, which had hoped that the visit, accompanied by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, would be less about cooperation and more about putting pressure on China.
China's military exercises in the Taiwan Straits are not a "blast fishing" exercise but a blast to the heart and guts of Taiwan secessionists aiming to correct the US and Taiwan's expectations for the situation in the Straits.
We hope that Macron and von der Leyen's visit will bring about more positive changes in Europe in this regard.
The DPP has long struggled with a shortage of international talent, and they have long accepted Western discourse and lack of international insight and historical vision.
Contrary to Tsai's expectations, more people are concerned about what risks her provocative move to collude with the US and "rely on the US to seek independence" will bring to Taiwan.
The US is still living under the illusion of American hegemony and determinism. However, as everyone knows, the world has moved on.
The recent dazzling diplomatic games are the proof of China's strong capability to defend its vital interests and maintain usual relations with other major powers.
Tsai Ing-wen is playing with fire again.
The so-called friendship between the US and Taiwan island can't change Taiwan's role as the cheapest pawn for the US.
China believes that the visit of European leaders to China will continue the positive momentum of close high-level interactions between China and the EU by the end of 2022.
"People should be able to make their own decisions" about using TikTok, Grace Featherston, a senior student at the University of Texas, said when receiving an email about the campus TikTok ban. She believes that the US government's move encroached on her personal liberties. As Ranking Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Gregory Meeks said, a crackdown on TikTok would "damage our allegiances across the globe, destroy jobs here in the United States and undercut core American values of free speech and free enterprise."
Regardless of China's strong opposition and warnings, the US House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Wednesday local time met with Taiwan regional leader Tsai Ing-wen in Los Angeles, who is visiting the US under the guise of "transit." This is another serious provocation by the US side that seriously violates the one-China principle, damages China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and undermines peace and stability of the Taiwan Straits, following the previous provocative visit by former House speaker Nancy Pelosi to the Taiwan island last August. China's countermeasures will be resolute and powerful, and the provocateurs will not have an easy time. The international community should take a good look at who is undermining the peace and stability of the Taiwan Straits, and who is the one creating crises and instability.
The effectiveness of French diplomacy will depend on its ability to find a new path of equality, friendly and mutually beneficial coexistence with the non-Western world, including China. It is clear to everyone that being a strategic vassal of Washington is a dead end. Making the China-France relationship a bridge for China-Europe cooperation is beneficial to both sides and to the world.
The best thing right now for people in the Chinese mainland, the island of Taiwan, and the US - and for human civilization as a whole - would be for all parties to step back from the brink and begin anew the quest for peace. It is time to negotiate a new international order based on international law and the indivisibility of security.
The US hacks phones to spy on the world.
Regional issues should be resolved by regional countries. Washington needs to understand that it is not welcomed to stir up trouble in a tranquil region to undermine peace and stability. The Philippines should play a role as "handrail" for China and the US to manage and control differences, and should not become a US' "hatchet man" for stimulating the conflicts with China.
If we're to believe Western media, they really and sincerely need to do two things - answer the questions they pose with unbiased and researched interpretations, not the feelings of a person who's entire life has been dedicated to military service; and they must also face up to the fact that modals are not truth.
For the world's No.1 power like the US, who is the president, what kind of person is the president, and his personal qualities are by no means small problems. We might argue, since “Trump I” was elected, Trump II and III will follow, and this may not be stopped by a single trial of Trump.
The meeting between Tsai and McCarthy will not bring any tangible benefit to the US or Taiwan island, but will make the world, especially countries in the Asia-Pacific region, clearly witness, once again, the sinister intentions of the US to sow the seeds of crises, turmoil, and chaos in the region.
The image that Washington has left in the eyes of the world is already that of a "false preacher" who shouts slogans louder and pulls the bottom line lower.
Is the world saying goodbye to US dollar hegemony?
As US armchair politicians and analysts are hyping up a possible war, true American warriors are calling for peace.
If you cannot keep a neutral position, you cannot be a negotiator. So Europe cannot negotiate peace between Russia and Ukraine, but China can.
US strategists play a long-term chess game, and it's about how we can gradually roll back the influence of Russia and China and secure the dominance of Western capitalism around the world.
The EU is a kind of international hybrid without a will of its own, and this is the reason why its member states prefer to take actions on their own, and not in the name of a unitary entity that does not really exist.
Warmonger's bloody record.
Two events that took place almost simultaneously in Washington on March 23 local time and Beijing on March 24 had completely opposite implications.
Hayashi's visit to China at this time mainly has constructive significance, but it remains to be seen to what extent it will ease China-Japan relations.
As one of the most crucial global poles, the EU has been trying hard to enable itself to keep an appropriate distance from the US and China politically and economically. However, it has sometimes had to move closer to the US.
The "sunset" of the West has become increasingly obvious. The West will invest immense effort to find the resources for renewal. When they finally achieve some type of renewal, the world and their place within it will be qualitatively different.
Friendship is the main tone and cooperation is the overall goal of China's policy toward Europe. China has already expressed this attitude to the European side on many occasions. The Chinese side welcomes the visits of European leaders with open arms and is willing to engage in practical dialogue and communication. However, the blossoming of China-Europe relations requires both sides to meet each other half way.
Against the backdrop of constant headwinds of globalization, China, with its advantages in a large market, will continue to play a key role in promoting global connectivity. No matter how the international situation changes, China will always be an important driver of global economic development, and China's high-quality development will continue to enhance the appeal of the Global Development Initiatives put forward by China.
Banning TikTok is a tiny part of a new US comprehensive & persistent campaign against China. US has gone from being a supporter who welcomed China's integration into intl community to an irascible fanatic who surrounds China at every turn.
When the world is facing a crossroads of high uncertainty, a new community of shared future for Asia will surely become an anchor of peace and stability, a source of growth impetus, and a new highland of cooperation. It may encounter some backlash, but the overall trend is unstoppable.
In today's world, "democracy" has basically come to mean whatever the US government says it means. That Washington has to hype a virtual summit to reinforce that message, shows that fewer countries are willing to put up with it.
This week's meeting could strengthen the bonds of friendship between the two states and be mutually beneficial. Both China and Spain advocate multilateralism, cooperation, and the peaceful and diplomatic resolution of conflicts, and having the same objective for a different purpose, starting in July, Spain may become an indispensable partner for China on the European stage.
Democracy is the common asset of human being, instead of a tool for the US to maintain its hegemony.
In the calculations of some US politicians, the increase in US defense budget can be justified once the US government and the public form a concerted effort against the "China threat." And with the DoD's policy driven more by budget, Washington will only pursue containing China's development more in a toxic political environment. In such a scenario, US politics will inevitably be hijacked by militarism, going down an increasingly irrational path.
The US is functionally not a democracy. It's a plutocracy. It's a system in which the rich can buy representation in the government. It's a system in which large corporations can essentially buy politicians.
This kind of unilateral action by one government that has trans-boundary and trans-generational harmful consequences for a wide range of other nations right across the Pacific is not conducive to peaceful, constructive relationships and building the safe, healthy future we all desperately need.
I am concerned about America as a country. I want it to do well. But as long as America continues to adopt and implement these kind of policies that has a boomerang effect on its own citizens, in this case, Chinese American citizens, it will fail. I just don't want to see it. That's why I'm fighting to make sure we do the right thing and make sure that America continues to be a good country for us Chinese Americans to live in and work in and where our children will grow and have happy families.
In that way, the sequence of modernization was a more holistic. It included social harmony and governance, and buy-in from local officials. Eventually, it is oriented to high-quality growth.
Boarding schools are the most ideal, effective, efficient mode of running schools for children of all ethnic groups in the Xizang region under current conditions. They have fostered tens of thousands of outstanding students for modernization of Xizang region and China.
It's clear that the mainstream public on the island hopes for peaceful relations across the Straits, and there is deep concern about the tendency of the DPP authorities to trample on the red line and cause tensions to escalate or even start a conflict. As patriotic compatriots on both sides of the Straits are making the greatest effort to realize peaceful reunification, the "Taiwan independence" movement is becoming increasingly unpopular on the island. An increasing number of people on the island realize that reunification is beneficial, "Taiwan independence" is a dead end, and the US is unreliable.
The US government, the real "Lord of War"
Under the misperception of China and the misdirection of the US' bullying policy, Britain is pushing itself step by step into the abyss of greater troubles. It is time for the UK to weigh up whether it benefits or harms itself more by using political means to suppress foreign companies under the pretext of unwarranted "risks."
The end of the COVID-19 pandemic is in sight, and China's public health system has made great progress, Gao Fu, a well-known national political advisor and former director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said at a panel focusing on ending the COVID-19 pandemic at the Boao Forum for Asia on Wednesday.
Next time when US officials preach democracy and human rights to other countries, I hope they will first think about those who died at the gunpoint of their own people.
A kinetic war between the US and China is now on the horizon. There is little time for the US to credibly change course before the first shots are exchanged by accident or design. It is a fatal mistake for the US or any outsider to act on the false belief that the status of the Taiwan island is or ever has been negotiable.
It's due to this grand strategic miscalculation that observers should expect the US to fearmonger about that country during the second "Summit for Democracy" in an attempt to justify its hybrid war-driven subversion of China's purely peaceful rise. There's no universal model of democracy nor does any country have a monopoly on this political concept, but falsely implying or outright claiming otherwise as the US is doing is intended to manipulate popular perceptions for malicious ends.
The US is not qualified to be the "preacher of democracy" of the world, and by turning democracy into a business, Washington has overestimated its market.
Ma's visit to the mainland for ancestral worship and communication stand in stark contrast to Tsai's trip to the US, highlighting the positive significance of Ma's visit to the mainland. As a mainland media professional, I wish Ma a smooth and successful visit to the mainland.
According to the Prime Minister's Office of Singapore, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Qiang will both meet with Lee during the latter's tour, suggesting China's expectations for bilateral ties. Whether Singapore can truly break away from the influence of the US policy of containing China and make choices based on its own national interests is the key to ushering in a turning point for China-Singapore relations in the post-pandemic era.
The most important step to ease the global economic crisis is to end the war in Ukraine through a negotiated settlement. China's peace initiative is a superb contribution towards this goal.
It is hoped that not only ASEAN countries but also more countries in the Asia-Pacific region will see the danger that AUKUS poses. We should work together to make our region a source of peace and stability, rather than living in constant fear of nuclear proliferation and threats.
Are migrants on a pathway to the American Dream or a human rights nightmare?
Chinese values have taken root and are bearing fruits. The appeal and attractiveness it creates have appeared at the venues of the two major forums and in the enthusiastic interactions between multinational enterprises and China. It will appear in every corner of the world in the future.
US teen drug overdose deaths have doubled in three Years as Fentanyl abuse 'deadly'
The conflict between Russia and Ukraine is a "proxy war" that the US has imposed on Europe. If the US and Russia cannot reach a compromise, there can be no peace between Russia and Ukraine. But if the conflict continues, not only will Russia and Ukraine be damaged, but also Europe's security dilemma will worsen. The more Europe tries to be safe, the more insecure it becomes.
We believe that no private business giant will lie flat in the days to come, and we also believe that new forces will continue to emerge, working together to create a competitive and thriving business environment.
I think we're back to those times when Macron, Merkel and previous EU leaders visited China. It is a good thing that shows quite some progress made between Europe and China. It also signals the significance and the determination of Europe to engage with China.
DPP authorities are tightly latching onto the US, touted seeking courtship with several foreign legislators as "achievements" and showed off the petty trick of "transiting" through US as "diplomatic accomplishments." These soap bubbles that could easily burst cannot cover up the botched situation of the island's governance, nor will they boost the momentum of "Taiwan independence." Instead, they will only accelerate the historical wheel of reunification of the motherland. The sleepwalking of "Taiwan independence" is coming to an end.
Washington engages in opportunistic and adventuristic strategy to back up the Taiwan secessionist forces. The two will only end up setting fire to themselves. The mainland's military power is increasing as its comprehensive strength grows, making the deterrence against the US and Taiwan secessionist forces more real.
I believe that out of the leaders in Taiwan island in the past few years, Ma opened the door between Taiwan and the mainland and pushed for comprehensive exchanges to promote cross-Straits peace, while Tsai Ing-wen led Taiwan into a dangerous situation. The British and US media are now greatly touting Tsai based on self-interest in confronting the mainland, but history will eventually expose Tsai's problems. The two sides of the Taiwan Straits must never go to conflict in the future. Ma has laid the foundation for the Big Three Links across the Taiwan Straits, and at this critical moment, he is willing to play the role he intends to and has played.
How the US brainwashes the world with "evaluation hegemony"
Looking back at history, European capitalism has been exploring between efficiency and fairness to constantly find points that lead to reforms. The European people chose a different path from that of the US - a path that emphasizes welfare and fair distribution. However, even under welfare capitalism, it does not change the nature of capitalism and its inherent flaws, which has inevitably led to the widening of the wealth gap.
We still are in a process where a dominant role of the US is the reality, but that's not sustainable. And we could start with the Chinese idea of "a shared future." But we have to think of what kind of changes are necessary to make that shared future a better future, dramatically sustainable in environmental, security and financial terms.
Every step that Taiwan takes in pretending to be a "country" will become increasingly difficult, like walking on thin ice, and it will also become more expensive.
For the last decade, the US has unleashed a new type of warfare, involving a hybrid methodology with economic, political, military, cultural, and ideological dimensions. Economic sanctions, support for proxy military forces, and ideological distortions are its calling cards. It is utilized against nations that refuse to subordinate their interests to those of the US.
To be more precise, the hearing was designed from the beginning to be a TikTok "struggle session" with the presumption of guilt, a trumped-up charge, and judgment before trial in which no evidence was presented, nor was TikTok given the time or opportunity to prove itself.
Lack of technical experience and trying to get countries to accept nuclear waste
As a major summary of the theory and practice of Chinese democracy, the whole-process people's democracy is also China's answer to the chaos of the West and the confusion of Western democracy.
Democracy is not a monument or shibboleth or a god. The purpose of democracy is to benefit the people.
The issue of Xinjiang is not a war of words, but about the fundamental principles of being human, about fairness and justice, and about the unfettered development of a country.
Ghost of McCarthyism haunts TikTok Hearing.
The "mutual love" between Chinese tourists and Thailand has been a source of vitality for the tourism industry in both countries and an important foundation for people-to-people exchanges.
As Australia is a sovereign power, China hopes that Australia will not succumb to any country or become a military pawn. It is believed that the Albanese administration has sufficient political wisdom to make decisions in line with its national interests.
We are in a very dangerous international situation. I think the most important thing is that the changes we will face are peaceful and that we don't go into a big war between NATO and Russia or even NATO and China. This is my most important message.
It is good for a country to have its participants be active contributors to it. It becomes a win-win situation. This will be the focus of the not-for-profit foundation which I have started in Australia.
China's cooperation with both sides actually makes it even more dependable in terms of brokering a compromise, and that was fully demonstrated in the recent diplomatic breakthrough between Iran and Saudi Arabia.
The international community needs to increase its moral condemnation of such behavior, which is not a matter of geopolitics but of basic humanity and morality.
China did not make the US' popularity decline, the US made itself decline.
It is very important for us Russians, because we understand that the present model of development, which was imported from the West, and its liberal capital is actually inefficient. And we should change the direction of our development and where it will go.
These days, it is much easier to be pessimistic about the future than to be optimistic about it. Still, one should not forget that the darkest hour is just before dawn. This might be the most important takeaway from President Xi's visit to Moscow.
Is Kishida hoping to show the world a country pursuing peace or a nation seeking military build-up?
Why is TikTok so popular in China? Of course, technology is paramount. But its rise is not a coincidence, especially in the form of short videos and live streaming with goods.
China's enormous contribution to world peace and stability will continue to be proven in diplomatic practices. President Xi's trip of peace has won wide support and applause from the world, which is the most powerful proof.
In short, Kishida's visit to Ukraine aims to show his personal adventurous spirit to the public, in an attempt to stimulate his cabinet's approval rating via an "unexpected" diplomatic move, thereby consolidating the foundations of his administration.
Given what has happened and is taking place in the US, the country is not qualified to be the global leader in democracy and the so-called Summit for Democracy is doomed to be fruitless.
Beneath human rights is hegemony
This lose-lose "trade war" has been dragging on for five years and should have ended long ago.
AUKUS dramatizes this desperation in defense of unipolar, white supremacy. Leaning on the internal hierarchy of the Western alliance, it summons forth the white among the white. It is clear where ASEAN's future lies.
These foundations require rethinking, improvement, and filling with new content that is adequate to the challenges of the time.
Against the backdrop of the world's turbulence, China and Russia have charted a way to coexist as friendly neighbors and major powers with strategic mutual trust, setting a new paradigm for the relationship between major powers and bringing all-round inspiration to the world.
After all, Hiroshima's history proves that those who provoked a war would get its punishment. In the current era, will Japan continue to create chaos in the Asia-Pacific region?
Democrats, Republicans, the military and foreign policy establishments, and growing sections of business, are singing from the same anti-China hymn sheet.
To this end, Xi's visit to Russia is expected to boost all-around cooperation.
The 20th anniversary of the Iraq War: Lies and war created by the US continue to harm the world.
It was well-known that the real objectives of the Iraq War were not weapons of mass destruction, but permanent military bases in Iraq, oil, and Israel.
As the only Asian member, Japan not only fails to speak for Asia, but also serves as a bridgehead for external interference in Asian affairs. This also proves the abnormality of Japan's diplomacy.
The reason Washington has proposed guardrails is that it understands the disastrous consequences of moving the US and China toward conflict.
New tricks the US is using to limit China
In reality, the relations between China and Russia are not exceptional. They represent a normal mode of partnership between states that can become the basis for a more stable international order.
In recent years, Chinese diplomacy in the Middle East has shown its vision and wisdom and thus seen breakthroughs. However, it must be soberly recognized that the coexistence of stability and chaos is the basic feature and pattern of political development in the Middle East.
Bettina Stark-Watzinger, German federal minister for education and research, is reportedly scheduled to visit Taiwan island next week, the first cabinet-level German official visit to the island in 26 years.
The tragedy of the military challenge issued to Russia by US now seems to be repeating itself vis-à-vis China in the form of a dangerous farce. US is trying everything to push Germany & Japan right to the fore, writes German MP Sevim Dagdelen
The US is seeking to expand military presence in the Philippines and put the Philippines on the frontline of US' anti-China campaign. What consequences will this move bring to the Asia-Pacific region? What the Philippines can do to avoid being a pawn of the US? Anna Malindog-Uy (Anna), senior research fellow of Global Governance Institution, and vice president of External Affairs of the Asian Century Philippines Strategic Studies Institute, shared her views with Global Times (GT) reporter Wang Zixuan over these issues.
China-Russia relations have withstood the test of international turbulence and remained calm and clear-headed, always advancing in a steadfast manner and in a direction that benefits the peoples of both countries and the world.
It's idiotic, yes, and idiocy is not evidence. And neither is xenophobia.
It's not just Treasury bonds that are faulty either, with the US real estate market presenting a major unrealized challenge.
The world does not need hatred, division or conflict, and the people of all countries want to live a good life.
China has made remarkable achievements in building law-based cyberspace, contributing Chinese wisdom and solutions to internet governance worldwide.
The US government has threatened to ban TikTok in the US unless its Chinese owners divest their stakes in it.
Why did the mainstream media in the US largely remain silent on Hersh's article? Are the NYT revelations credible? Who is the culprit for the Nord Stream pipeline attack?
Xizang is a unique but normal human society, not a museum showing Tibetan barbaric and backward serfdom culture. A socialist China is people-centered, and all ethnic groups will be truly respected and protected.
A farcical balloon scandal has further soured US-China relations. In late January 2023, the Biden administration and the US mainstream media spent a full week spreading fear about an alleged "Chinese spy balloon" flying over the US mainland. Chinese officials urged calm from the US and explained that the balloon in question was an unmanned meteorological aircraft that had been blown off course by heavy winds. On February 4t 2023, US President Joe Biden ordered the Pentagon to shoot down the balloon, costing $2 million.
For quite some time, though styling themselves as champions of human rights, some Western countries have already given away their true proclivity for cherry-picking when it comes to human rights.
An article in the New York Times titled China Helped Raise My American Kids, and They Turned Out Fine by an American mother may partially explain why an increasing number of expat families are choosing Chinese schools for their children, given that more and more people from Western countries have been enjoying working and living in China as the country deepens its opening-up.
Peace is so fragile, and crisis management is important, but reducing its occurrence from the root is even more critical.
The US can no longer stop the remaining “diplomatic allies” of the Taiwan island from thinking what the trend of the times is and which way is on the right side of history.
"It's really strange for Australia to agree with the US that China is our potential enemy when it's also our biggest trading partner."
Australia pays own money to serve the US' Indo-Pacific Strategy.
A long way is ahead before a new chapter in Japan-Korea relations.
The two arch-rivals of the Middle East - Saudi Arabia and Iran - recently sat down for peace talks in Beijing and restored diplomatic relations, highlighting the effectiveness of China's diplomatic efforts. Why can China act as the "peace broker?"
Australia's inexplicable sense of insecurity when facing China is basically the result of being spiritually controlled for many years by the US.
The appearance of the US as a human rights defender does not correspond to reality.
India controls Bhutan's security and economic lifelines, which enables it to interfere in Bhutan's internal affairs and foreign policy.
"I have full confidence in the new government. They understand both China and the world."
The UK still thinks it is a global empire, but its emperor has no clothes. There is no prosperity, good fortune or progress that will await the UK on its current trajectory.
A China that is not afraid of difficulties and struggles in unity has embarked on a new journey toward the grand goal of “building a great country and advancing national rejuvenation.”
How the SVB collapse explains the US economy
When China sits down with friends, it is for peace. When the US and its partners get together, the agenda is about confrontation.
China has accomplished its modernization by carrying it on the country's shoulders and projecting important benefits to others. Western modernization has largely been carried on the shoulders of others & projected sacrifices and exclusion onto them.
Regrettably, Britain has not chosen to embrace the radically changing world on the basis of cooperation and multilateralism.
The wedding custom, as a ritual lasting for thousands of years, is unlikely to be regulated by law. The ideal way is to relieve the worries of unmarried females through publicity and improve the social status of women.
The Hersh article was too embarrassing for the US. It took the New York Times one month to figure out how to react.
The diplomatic rationale of China is simple and clear. China adheres to the principle of peaceful development. It firmly pursues an independent foreign policy of peace.
We believe that achieving reconciliation through dialogue, and development through peace, will have a deeply profound influence and gain huge popularity in this era, and only victory for peace is a true victory.
I would advise that governments protest to Japan, make diplomatic protests, bring a case to the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea in every form they can, including in the General Assembly of the United Nations, as well as have a debate in Security Council, although the US is a veto as well as other countries such as France and the UK.
As a matter of fact, residential education is full of diversity, humanity and vitality in other parts of the world, including the Xizang Autonomous Region of China, which provides a favorable environment for many youngsters, and becomes the key to a brighter life.
The “multifaceted America” behind human rights scandals
The big bosses on Wall Street and the White House see the opportunity to make money from global conflicts, and the world sees the growing conflicts and rising risks of war. Can the US-designed "order" be maintained this way without any change?
Hopefully, we are going to be a beneficiary. It's not about China. It's a global initiative.
The recent Saudi-Iran agreement has come as a major surprise to most observers, but making the announcement and revealing its details from Beijing has been a bigger surprise.
Generals and admirals, both active duty and retired, are now turned to as the most coveted presidential advisors on foreign policy. Naturally, their cultural toolbox contains mostly hammers and most foreign policy challenges appear as nails.
The offensive of the US and its allies against Russia has increased awareness among Global South countries that it is necessary to strengthen the regional and global initiatives that are "not aligned" with Western hegemony.
Both Saudi Arabia and Iran have expressed gratitude to Beijing for its diplomatic efforts. This shows that China's peaceful diplomacy of upholding justice, facilitating peace and promoting talks has been widely recognized by the Middle East and international community.
The trilateral statement is a clear evidence of China's peaceful diplomacy beginning to exert influence in the world and a proof of China's strength being transformed into diplomatic soft power. China is a world-class power that is full of goodwill. It never harms other countries and is truly committed to win-win cooperation. Reaching this trilateral statement will definitely strengthen the impression and trust of many countries toward China. Successful mediation between Saudi Arabia and Iran will also enhance China's discourse power to promote peaceful settlement of the Ukraine crisis.
The unity and striving of more than 1.4 billion Chinese people belong not only to China but also to the world.
For almost a decade, I have been focusing on China's concern for its poorest citizens, and how, especially under President Xi Jinping's leadership, the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) has prioritized its overarching commitment to enhancing the standards of living — to improve the lives — of all sectors of the country's vast and diverse population, especially through the CPC's "targeted poverty alleviation campaign."
Riled up against China, GOP congress members have long felt that Washington's new cold war needed a special venue. So as soon as the baton passed to Republicans in the House, they set up a select committee on China. This is majority leader Kevin 'Trump's the Man' McCarthy's baby, and if it sounds to you like a forum for much grandstanding and frothing about the communist menace, the yellow peril and the need to beef up the FBI, CIA, DIA and NSA, so they can hunt down China's spies from the halls of government to the groves of academe — 'they're everywhere' supposedly — you may be onto something. I'm not sure what that something is, but it's a good bet it ends with United States navy aircraft carriers steaming toward Taiwan. In fact, a four-star general, Mike Minihan, said as much January 27. 'My gut tells me we will fight in 2025,' he wrote in a memo to his subordinates. In which case it's time to head for the hills — since every place else will be radioactive.
I do not believe that a group of Ukrainian freelancers bombed the Nord Stream, since it seems too convenient and hard to imagine that they would have the technical capabilities, says author of American Exception: Empire and the Deep State
Perhaps only after Ya Ya returns to China can this unexpected episode that is occurring against the backdrop of strained US-China relations come to an end, but the underlying issues it reflects, and the potential harm it will cause to the emotions of the Chinese and American peoples, are worthy of further reflection and discussion.
The unlimited greed of the US to continue expanding its military power at its peak should serve as a warning to us.
In the US, polls seem to have become a tool manipulated by its political elites to discredit China on the international stage. Such underhand practice is another manifestation of the US' hysteria toward China.
The US, by virtue of its super economic status, attempts to replace international law with its domestic rules. It once again exposes the hegemonic nature of the US in dealing with international relations.
The US military budget is aimed at global hegemony, but there are many factors in regional military games that cannot be replaced by global games.
The Chinese modernization is sustainable because it neither plunders other countries nor nature. In the past decade, an amazingly short period of time, China has led the world in reversing the inevitable historical consequences of industrialization.
Through the two sessions, international observers closely watch China's moves and recognize China's development and achievements.
We are living through a post-shame era of politics in the US. This shameful system will continue for as long as the people remain subjects of the parasitic oligarchy that has infected the US political, economic, and media systems.
As Australian media outlets up their game of drumming war drums against China, former Australian diplomats stressed China is not knocking at Australia's door to invade Australia; China provides economic opportunity and prosperity, while the US is offering death and destruction, at Global Times' Global Minds Roundtable on China-Australia Relations on Monday.
According to Yonhap News Agency on March 8, a senior Seoul official said that South Korea plans to "proactively accelerate" its participation in the Quad working group.
Who exactly is hurting the bilateral ties and even world peace by showing its sharp claws? In order to avoid having a misperception, we need to answer this question correctly.
Hyping the "Russia challenge" or "China threat" is never a panacea for the US' problems. It's a cry-wolf game that eventually destroys trust and leaves the shepherd helpless.
It is groundless for some external forces to hype up the so-called China's non-transparent military spending.
Uncle Sam is playing a game of lies regarding Tokyo's decision to dump nuclear-contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean.
The real threat confronting Australia is not China, but the US, which not only takes Australia as a front-line base, but also constantly pushes it toward wars. Australians do not need war; they need to sharpen their eyes.
