Substantial progress has been made in various areas during the latest round of high-level trade consultations between China and the US that laid the foundation of an agreement between the two countries, Chinese Vice Premier Liu He said during his Saturday speech at the 2019 World Conference on VR Industry, in East China's Jiangxi Province.
China's ability to develop and to optimize its development has remained robust. The country's development has never stalled and is unlikely to show signs of stagnation.
Catalonia is the first to be infected, but will not be the last. If the globalized world cannot jointly oppose violent political movements that challenge the order, it cannot be ruled out that the West will eventually become the severely afflicted area of the new type of violent movement.
The US is a country that puts great emphasis on politics. Its ideology is often extreme. American society ranks highest on exclusiveness of viewpoints beyond its “political correctness.” The next time the US advocates “universal values” such as “freedom of speech” to the world, it should be honest.
Instead of solving the problem, the US is increasingly creating a problem for the world. It is hoped the US can reflect upon itself. As a superpower with far-reaching interests, the US will benefit the most from a benign world order.
There will always be uncertainty, but it is nothing to be feared. The Chinese economy is undergoing a historic transformation, which won't be an easy process. But we will not be overwhelmed by the difficulties. Hard work, perseverance and an optimistic Chinese society will create a better future.
No matter how hard some American politicians try, they will eventually be pushed to the edge in Hong Kong.
Both China and the US still have resources to sustain a trade war, but further consumption of those resources is unnecessary since their goals have proved naive and absurd.
The situation is still highly uncertain, but the historical indicators will gradually be corrected. China and the US will not get lost and the world will benefit from the implementation of the consensus reached by the two heads of state, assuming the responsibility to both countries and the world and moving steadily towards the final end of the trade war in stages.
In the past decade, overall peace and rapid development have prevailed between the two amid differences and frictions. That's because the leaders of both countries have a clear understanding over the key issue – friendly cooperation is in line with China and India's fundamental strategic interests.
What hasn't changed is Tsai and her Democratic Progressive Party's attitude against reunification. This has pushed the island to the edge of the cliff. We don't know what was in Tsai's mind after she watched the military parade held on National Day in Beijing. What we know is confronted with such power and the strong will of the mainland, the island can easily see the consequences.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday announced visa restrictions on Chinese government officials "believed to be responsible for so-called suppression of Muslim ethnic minority groups" in Northwest China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. Family members of those officials could also be subject to the restrictions.
The world is changing. We need to gather strength to deal with potential threats, and stay kind to make it possible to eliminate conflict. As a big power, China should be confident to move forward.
China and the US are at the forefront of shaping international relations in the 21st century. How do we define fairness and rationality? It can only be answered through interactions and adjustments. A unilateral definition does not count. It is hoped that after rounds of trade war and talks, some consensus can be reached, instead of widening the gap between the two.
How much wisdom the Rockets have to overcome the crisis and minimize the adverse effects will become an interesting test case.
It is time for logic to resume its position among Hong Kong public opinion. It would be in the best interests of everyone for the city to reclaim its natural identity.
