The foremost thing for the US right now is to restrain its hegemonic mind-set and behavior, and promote regional peace and cooperation, rather than make trouble in the region.
China's aim is to play a constructive role in a peace process which is “guided and owned by the people of Afghanistan.”
Many of Abe's political conundrums come from his own missteps.
President Xi's visits to India and Nepal have sent a positive signal to the world: China is willing to advance cooperation with all South Asian countries. China has regarded India a friendly neighbor. Only if India can act, as Modi has said, to actively promote relationship with China, will bilateral ties develop and help promote prosperity and stability in South Asia.
The grapevine has it that the Modi-Xi informal summit in Mamallapuram, India, saw them agree to build a “manufacturing partnership” and insinuations point at the two leaders already ironing out an agreement that with some more fine tuning with ASEAN, could accommodate New Delhi's reservations.
Under such circumstances, the development of China-South Korea economic and trade relations will rely on how to expand and enhance cooperation, rather than how to curb or control competition.
China's proposal to build a community with a shared future for mankind will guarantee comprehensive cooperation between China and Mongolia. In the future, the two countries should broaden consensus, continue to establish and strengthen partnerships in terms of development initiatives, and further push good neighborly relations to new heights.
Up until now, Japan has not done much to corroborate its words. If the kindness is shown only to assure President Xi's visit to Japan in the coming year, which would serve as a major diplomatic event before Abe steps down, Japan will finally find itself in a situation that doesn't have a way out.
The willingness to strengthen a relationship that has stood the test of time starts right at the top. This visit was a true manifestation of that.
There is much room to further elevate the China-Nepal relations, but India is wary of this as New Delhi regards South Asia as its own sphere of influence
The spring of China-Nepal cooperation has arrived. People on both sides of the Himalayas are expected to hold hands and move toward a common future.
After months of intense preparations, with the stage set for the second informal summit and with a desire to build a partnership free of the constraints of doubt, hesitation, contestation and claims, Chennai promises to be another important milestone in bilateral relations.
As splendid ancient civilizations and big developing countries, China and India can do a lot on the world stage. Although China-India ties have been through twists and turns, as co-proposers of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, the Asian neighbors clearly have enough wisdom to overcome difficulties and push forward a closer development partnership.
The Chinese version of the song says, “the whole world is jealous of me for holding your hand.” I would like to present these lyrics to all people who devote themselves to promoting cooperation in East Asia.
While learning from the cultural achievements of the West, the two sides should enhance mutual understanding through people-to-people and cultural contacts and dialogues among civilizations, and promote exchanges and dialogues on development and governance models.
In summary, although the upgrade of Quad might make Beijing uneasy, it is not surprising, because this is partly a result of the deepened US-China strategic competition. Most Chinese observers believe that there is no need to overreact, and the key to handling the Quad is to be more active in dealing with India, Japan and Australia.
Ren's success in China is enough to prove that China's social environment and policies can foster companies on a par with world-class ones such as Apple, Microsoft and Google. In addition, China is even able to make better use of market forces than the US.
New Delhi has its guard up against Beijing. Some Indian observers see China as their biggest threat. Amid increasing US-China rivalry, India will take advantage of the situation. While leaning toward Washington, New Delhi will prudently deal with trilateral ties, making its China and American policy work in its best interest.
If the US fails to award relevant countries with maximum profits, these countries such as India and Australia won't spare any effort to back US Indo-Pacific Strategy. However, it is a difficult task for the Trump administration, which is oriented to the “America First” policy, to mobilize other countries, as lip-service won't work.
The founding of the PRC coincided with a time when many countries were gaining independence. Not all, however, developed as impressively as China. But China has made itself a model for them and they can also look at the rising power to seek to become a part of a shared, prosperous future.
While New Delhi rejects the Western concept of "containment" against China, it surely desires to take up the mantle of the Indo-Pacific agenda by making a Russian buy-in feasible.
