On Tuesday, Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang answered questions from journalists both home and abroad about China's foreign policy and external relations. The foreign minister's press conference is one of the highlights of the two sessions every year.
Private enterprises and foreign companies in China can be at ease, explore and develop the Chinese market without any concerns. And the rewards will be generous.
Unlike in Western countries, this will not mean a policy "U-turn." Instead, it will open a new chapter in a great relay race, where the next leg of the journey will continue with unrelenting effort.
The spring of the year sets the tone for things that follow. We wish for a successful convening of the two sessions. At the same time, we have reason to look forward to this spring, where firm belief, vigorous strength, and a trail of progress will leave even more profound imprints than before.
At the opening ceremony of the G20 Foreign Ministers' Meeting, all participants observed a minute of silence for the victims of the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. This was a rare touch of warmth amid the growing division and intensifying confrontation. It shows that transcending differences and engaging in dialogue and cooperation are not only possible, but also have a deep root in international community. We hope that all parties can shoulder their responsibilities, demonstrate cooperation, and contribute to promoting global development and prosperity.
In recent years, Washington has frequently threatened to punish others using the excuses of "threats" on the international stage. Now, the Nord Stream bombing has exposed the security loopholes facing human society. When it comes to this matter, the US and other Western countries, which have always held an attitude of "better to kill a thousand innocent people than let one truly guilty person go free" on security issues, should stop pretending cordiality. It should be noted that even if someone holds the microphone for a moment, they can never monopolize the truth forever.
As we write this editorial, the hearing has not yet started, but we can roughly imagine what kind of scene it will be. From the "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq to the "White Helmets" in Syria, they are all produced on the same assembly line. Historical experience tells the world that no matter how many lies Washington spreads and how many humanitarian disasters it causes, its political elites and media may not even blush. Otherwise, how could this shameful political farce be staged one by one?
We welcome President Lukashenko's visit to China, as well as all foreign friends who are committed to peace and development. A friendly and gentle China full of vitality and opportunities will naturally have a strong attractiveness, which is fundamentally different from some big powers that are deliberately seeking to forum cliques and alliances. China conforms to the trend of the times and definitely has an inexhaustible and powerful driving force.
Development is the eternal theme of human society and a just goal that can never be abandoned at any time. No country or organization can restore the world economy quickly on its own, it is a process of global cooperation.
What this document shows is China's sincerity and goodwill in actively promoting peace talks.
The theme of peace and development requires serious reconsideration and readjustment by the society. It is now time for the international community to work together and press the stop button on this conflict.
What Tokyo needs is not a sense of formality, but a sincere and constructive attitude that can be felt by others. It emphasizes the importance of communication, but there is much more that Japan needs to explain and clarify to China.
Security is a common concern for all mankind, and great powers should set an example.
In the face of an increasingly fragile and imbalanced international security situation, as two major powers neighboring each other, the healthy and stable development of bilateral relations is beneficial to world peace.
US' abuse of force this time has set an extremely bad and dangerous precedent and intensified the entire global situation. Wang pointed out in Munich that What the US needs to do is demonstrate sincerity, and face up to and resolve the damage that this incident has brought to China-US relations. To be honest, it is not only the Chinese people who object to the US' practice; the whole world is concerned about a US like this. After all, missiles are not used for fun, and Washington's abuse of force will surely arouse the international community's vigilance.
Future China-Europe relations are bound to experience turbulence and uncertainties, but they should steer toward a better future.
We hope that it is not only the failed farce of the "balloon incident" that can calm Washington down, it should reflect too much.
If Europe really wants to turn the MSC to an event that promotes peace and solve conflict, then they must pay real attention to the voices of Chinese delegation and pragmatically conduct dialogue with Chinese side.
If the security concept is not "on track," its domestic security problems will continue to erupt. Who can guarantee that the next American danger will not hit the whole world?
We welcome President Raisi's visit, and look forward to China-Iran relations reaching a new high.
"Shooting a mosquito with cannon" is really happening in today's US. If Washington is willing to spend taxpayers' money on this kind of political playacting, simply let it do it.
"US-style democracy," which has long been used by the US as a weapon to instigate conflicts, has increasingly incurred alarm in the world, while the banner of ideology can no longer hide the true color of hegemony, bullying and high-handedness.
Hegemony is the core goal of the US, bullying is the way of action, and domineering is the behavioral characteristic.
The international community needs to keep asking Washington until it gives a convincing explanation.
From the State of the Union address and the reaction in the US, we see the same politically divided, sensitive, anxious, and unconfident US. Such a US has made the world uneasy and unsettled.
Huge disasters are often characterized by shocking scenes that create a strong sense of shared destiny in a short period of time, as well as the expectation and call for human solidarity. This kind of understanding, which has been gained at a tragic cost, is invaluable and should be widely and firmly practiced in human society.
If Tokyo insists on deploying the US military's MRBMs on Japanese soil, it will undoubtedly burn its own country's future into flames.
For Hong Kong, it is necessary to remain not only optimistic about the future, but also sober and calm about the reality. It has to overcome unfavorable factors, consolidate existing advantages, and keep advancing with the times.
Both Taiwan and the compatriots on the island cannot wait to see the resumption of direct flights between the two sides.
Even in a sparsely populated remote area like North Dakota, the so-called national security may destroy normal investment projects at any time.
Obviously, NATO is an unwelcome “guest” to East Asia and the entire Asia-Pacific region.
In front of the US, unlike some other countries, the Philippines has generally demonstrated the independence of a sovereign state.
NATO's intention to get involved in the Asia-Pacific is well known. How to refuse to “drink poison to quench thirst” will test Seoul's political wisdom.
Washington has played a disgraceful and disruptive role in both issues of peace and development, and has essentially become the “source of chaos” for the entire world.
The US is the hardest-hit area by hurricanes, and Americans should understand the violent power of hurricanes to destroy everything.
China in the Year of the Rabbit is on a fairly good starting point. Optimism and vitality have become the key words at the beginning of this year.
Despite the difficulties and challenges ahead, we are always inspired by this spiritual power. Such a national spirit has been fully manifested in the Spring Festival Gala.
In this Year of the Rabbit with two “starters,” we have reason to expect that everything will become better in the new year for us, for our families and for our country.
It's clear that China and the US are implementing the spirit of the Bali meeting between the two heads of state and gradually resuming high-level exchanges in the fields of diplomacy, economy and trade.
Since the world has greater confidence and expectations in the determination and ability of China's economy to overcome difficulties, we should have this confidence even more.
A clear, stable, and predictable regulatory environment, and a policy atmosphere that encourages private entrepreneurs to explore and venture, will release enormous energy.
If the US really wants to help African countries, is it hard to find proper places and timing? Is it necessary to chase and follow China? Under the guise of helping Africa, the US actually regards the continent as a battleground for great powers.
The WEF has witnessed China's opening-up and development in decades. China's ideals and achievements also made the Davos Spirit more dazzling. At the WEF this year, the world will once again witness that “China's development is an opportunity for the world,” and we also believe that China will have more like-minded friends at the WEF.
It is time for Tokyo to realize that in the Asia-Pacific region, which is a highland of cooperation, what is really powerful is not the so-called "spear" or "shield," but the general desire for peace and development.
The political profits on Jimmy Lai's gang must be "delicious but hard to digest."
It was the US and its people that suffered the most from McCarthyism back then. Today, McCarthy's shadow is rising from the ashes of the Cold War, manifesting itself through another "McCarthy." History is full of coincidences. Is this also a special way to send alarms and warnings to Americans? But has Washington got it?
China and South Korea are close neighbors and inseparable partners. Even during the most severe period of the epidemic, China and South Korea took the lead in finding the facilitating means and innovative mechanism arrangement against the backdrop of epidemic prevention and control. The economic and trade cooperation between the two countries broke through the interference of the virus, benefited both countries, and ensured the stability of South Korea's industrial chain. This is a truly "scientific and objective" attitude to respond to the epidemic, and South Korea should not lose it.
To make Tokyo become strategically sober as soon as possible is a serious problem that both the Japanese society and the Asia-Pacific region need to face and find ways to solve. The current political ecology, public opinion and social thinking in Japan are all showing disturbing signs. If these signs are not extinguished as soon as possible, there is a high risk that a fire will break out, and even Washington will not be able to stay out of it.
In today's chaotic and intertwined international situation, a radical political virus can easily find a suitable hotbed for survival, and it has become more infectious and pathogenic. After Washington's catalyst, its destruction will sharply increase. And it is bound to backfire on the US. The unrest in Brazil has once again sounded the alarm for the US.
After three years of a difficult epidemic fight, we have finally won the strategic initiative of this "tough battle" and ushered in an important turning point.
The scientific and professional nature of the 10th edition of the diagnosis and treatment plan is a realistic response to the urgent demands of society. It reflects the consistent adherence to "People First, Life First" under the new situation of Class B Management.
We hope that Biden and Kishida's vision can surpass the level shown during Thursday's ministerial meeting.
Some countries have been putting on a show from the very beginning, and political factors have overwhelmed scientific judgment.
Right before the second anniversary of the Capitol riots, on January 3, 2023, another political chaos, dubbed by CNN as a "horror show," happened in the same place.
The hype without a factual basis eventually failed to take root.
In the face of many challenges, for the world to become better, major countries must set an example. Over the past year, we have unremittingly explored the correct way for the two major countries, China and the US, to get along with each other and shown our utmost restraint and goodwill. In the new year, it is obvious that Washington needs to do more regarding how the two countries should correctly view each other's domestic and foreign policies as well as strategic intentions, establish the exchange tone of dialogues rather than confrontation and win-win rather than zero-sum mentality.
As the new year's bell is about to ring, we embrace 2023 with open arms, expecting it to become a new year for China to "roll up our sleeves and work hard" and provide the world with an inexhaustible supply of positive energy.
The US and Western politicians cannot influence the internal affairs of the HKSAR, nor do they have the right to interfere with the practice of the rule of law in the governance of the HKSAR. Only the Chinese law is the final basis.
We will not be held back by them in our policymaking and in the pace and rhythm with which we move forward.
The Chinese mainland must make full preparations in military. There is always a sword of Damocles hanging over the heads of DPP and "Taiwan secessionist"forces.
Standing alone on the opposite side of international justice, where it is freezing, the US can hardly bear the cold no matter how brazen the US is.
Yu personally has no way to turn back, and can only go on to the dark end. With his value to the Americans rapidly shrinking, it will be a matter of time before he is completely abandoned.
The US has become a saboteur of the multilateral trading system, a manipulator of double standards in industrial policies, a disruptor of global industrial and supply chains, and a master of unilateral bullying.

If you treat China as a "threat," you actually become a "threat" to China, and in turn China will really become a "threat" to you. Japan is creating a crazy vicious circle.
It is hoped that the US delegation can accurately convey China's attitude back to Washington, which is that we welcome China-US cooperation, but will never accept “cooperation” aimed at weakening, containing and suppressing China.
The US should no longer be allowed to act as a rogue in the WTO, nor should Washington's hegemonism and protectionism be tolerated.

Once again, China's epidemic prevention and control work has again taken an important step toward precision and science.
It is evident that China-Arab countries relations have already created models in many aspects. We believe the convening of the China-Arab summit will bring the cooperation to a new level.
Global issues are common challenges that no one in the world can avoid. The success of COP15 represents the ability of humanity to take action as a whole to deal with challenges, which is of great importance. China, as presidency of COP15, from the beginning to the end, focuses on doing things well in a down-to-earth manner, not claiming credit but always making sure to contribute its share to the success of the cause.
No matter how much the Pentagon relies on the B-21 when it tries to intervene in the cross-Straits affairs, it will only become a paper airplane that will be gently falling down in the face of the iron wall of the PLA and the strong will of the 1.4 billion Chinese people. Not only will B-21 fail to prove "US deterrence," but it will only become the latest proof on the showcase of "source of American chaos."
The White House brought out all the ceremonial objects it could think of. All this had a slightly unreal feeling: It was a strong contrast with the rift between the US and France on various issues and the criticism of the US Macron made before his trip.
We hope that Europe will transcend the Cold War mentality and ideological confrontation, go beyond institutional confrontation, and oppose all forms of the "new cold war."
From Dongfanghong satellites, Long March rockets, Chang'e lunar probes to Tiangong Space Station, every step of China's aerospace industry has been down-to-earth, and it has brought us a lot of inspiration.

US' readout of ADMM-plus joint declaration has a strong Cold War hue and is full of Washington's impulse to dominate regional affairs and attempt to marginalize the role of ASEAN.
Now everyone knows that at least the Netherlands clearly opposes imitating the US. It's the US that has been forcing the Netherlands to cooperate with it. Isn't this “economic coercion?”
It is hoped that all parties will take the "blue vest incident" as an opportunity to enhance grass-root governance capabilities and civilized law-enforcement capabilities while carrying out epidemic prevention and control according to law.
It is not complicated to understand that those who threaten China's core interests will face the powerful countermeasures from the Chinese military. For any countries, including the US, that stand within the scope of common interests with China in the international community, the Chinese military is a protective force, or a partner in maintaining peace.
Regarding the complexity of China-US relations, not only China and the US, the countries in the Asia-Pacific and the even the entire world need to have a full understanding and corresponding policy arrangement. Target countries that have been “selected” by the US must keep sober to avoid falling into traps.
