Deteriorating Japan-S.Korea ties reveal declining US influence

As of the press time, deaths have exceeded 129,000. As the protests caused by the death of George Floyd continue in the US, it can be said that the Trump administration has no time to take care of the conflicts between Tokyo and Seoul, leaving them adrift and angry with each other.

Wrong for India to think provoking China is countering a 'Wolf Warrior'

Verbal support from the West won't give India any real advantage, nor will it change the nature of the Galwan Valley clash. If India, deluded by Western public opinion, is stubbornly determined to act as a “wolf” that provokes China, China will firmly respond and won't yield an inch in safeguarding its sovereign integrity.

Is there a way forward for China-Australia relations?

The so-called “hawks” take a narrow view of China. They are more driven by fear of China than by confidence in our ability to realize the opportunities that China and Australia could achieve.

National Security Law denies US ambition to manipulate HK

It's not China going to the US to pick a fight, it was the US that came to Hong Kong to provoke. Well, this time the Chinese are going to spend some efforts helping an arrogant Washington revise its self-recognition and learn how to respect other powers.

Morrison's defense blueprint reveals Canberra's anxiety

If Australia really yearns to elevate its diplomatic status and expand its influence, it will have some hard thinking to do over how to make up for the huge gap between its strategic resources and aims, and how to make best use of its advantages while bypassing its disadvantages. Australia must carefully weigh its current military strengths with that of its population and economy.

Post-truth addicted Western world distorts HK facts of natl security law

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.

National Security Law for HK is not a toothless tiger

There may be some extreme forces who are reluctant to admit their failure. Some may even continue to make provocations. But the national security law is not a toothless tiger. Those who breach it will face legal consequences.
