China-Japan relations won’t be altered by Trump’s ridiculous ‘unfair military alliance’ remark


Tokyo (and probably the whole world) was shocked when Bloomberg News reported on June 25 that: “President Donald Trump has recently mused to confidants about withdrawing from a longstanding defense treaty with Japan, according to three people familiar with the matter, in his latest complaint about what he sees as unfair U.S. security pacts… “… … Continue reading

China’s top negotiator underperformed his job in the China-US trade talk


Liu He, China’s Vice Premier and the top negotiator for the current China-US trade talk, did not do his job good enough as he either said too much yes during the face-to-face talks, or significantly underestimated the ultimate terms, including the last-minute requests, demanded by the Trump administration. As I said last year, Trump could … Continue reading

China in deeper trouble if Trump not granted Nobel Peace Prize


U.S. President Donald Trump wants the Nobel Peace Prize. The Norwegian committee would owe him this honor if the Trump administration could really complete a denuclearization deal with North Korea. According to a Feb 19 Reuters news, Trump does not need Prime Minister Abe’s nomination, he “has already been nominated by two Norwegian lawmakers. ‘We … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, December 3, 2018


Taiwan President Tsai Ing-Wen apologizing after a mid-term defeat at the provincial level will not demonstrate strength on her part, but she shows respect and stability in maintaining her appointees and policy toward China.

Beijing joins the ‘Trump-Putin Helsinki Summit is Yalta 2.0’ Debate


An AFP article published on July 1 is probably the first one comparing the Trump-Putin Helsinki summit to the 1945 Yalta Conference where President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Premier Joseph Stalin agreed on certain post-WWII arrangements among themselves personally. Since then, a series of comments went on to argue that the … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, July 9, 2018


China is reaching out to the world. It doesn’t want tariffs imposed by the US. President Xi Jinping likely feels betrayed by the man who was so kind to him previously, President of the United States Donald Trump. The Western press will of course paint China and Trump as the villains—each in their different sectors—while … Continue reading

How China may benefit from Trump’s pullout from the Iran deal


Almost all the leading mainstream media across the Atlantic Ocean express worries about the U.S.-Europe ties after President Trump announced his withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal on May 8. The influential der Spiegel of Germany says “Trump strikes a deep blow to Trans-Atlantic ties”. The Observer editorial at the Guardian talks about “Europe’s duty … Continue reading

‘China Threat’ helps make Trump a great president


Further to the Pew Research’s 2014 finding that “…The ‘China threat’ in particular looms large in many American minds”, a new study finds that “trade and China”, alongside “immigration”, carried heavy weight in having Donald Trump elected as the President in 2016. The research paper approved on March 26, 2018 by the Proceedings of the … Continue reading

China again threatening to invade Philippines island of Pagasa


It appears that China, emboldened by Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte’s kowtowing to China, is once again planning to invade the Philippines island of Pagasa. China’s plans to invade Pagasa, known as Zhongye by the Chinese, were first revealed in a world exclusive by China Daily Mail in January 2014. This led to representations by the … Continue reading

The coming China-Korea Reintegration


Trump confirmed personally that he would be meeting Kim Jong-un in May or early June. As I have said many times in the past three years, the United States has “no other choice but talk”. Therefore, it was Pyongyang to determine ‘when’, that is, after the nuclear and long-range missile tests have reached certain functional … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, March 12, 2018


As talks between Kim and Trump march forward, China is resigned to the new situation at its eastern border and is focusing on other areas, specifically trade. In truth, China’s main trade opponent is not the US, but Vietnam. Vietnam’s main edge in trade will be that it is less expensive. Vietnam is, in many … Continue reading

China is number one on Eurasia Group’s 2018 list of geopolitical risks


Eurasia Group, which was founded by Ian Bremmer in 1998 with a new and subsequently influential concept of “Global Political Risk Index” (GPRI) for the financial market, puts “China loves a vacuum” as the top risk for 2018. It says that when “China is setting international standards with less resistance than ever before … in … Continue reading

Israelis, Palestinians to attend forum in Beijing after Trump’s Jerusalem recognition


It is undeniably painful to the Arabs in general and the Palestinians in particular for facing the cruel reality that the Trump administration officially recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. However, despite the high profile protests raised by President Erdogan of Turkey at the summit of the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation on Dec 13, and … Continue reading

China appreciates Tillerson’s “Four Nos” on North Korea


“We do not seek a regime change, we do not seek a collapse of the regime, we do not seek an accelerated reunification of the peninsula, we do not seek an excuse to send our military north of the 38th Parallel,” U.S. State Secretary Rex Tillerson said on August 1. He got a feedback from … Continue reading

WSJ video shows Chinese students abroad don’t return home with western democracy


It has long been a puzzle why so many mainland Chinese students, after a number of years of living and studying in the Western countries, do not push for democratization after they have returned home. Some scholars even suggested that perhaps there were Chinese spies everywhere watching these students here and there overseas. In the … Continue reading

China supports two-state solution to settle the Palestinian issue


Standing next to the visiting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Beijing, Xi Jinping states clearly that China supports the two-state solution which is in line with the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334. It is the loudest rebuttal to certain analysts’ ill-motivated question on China’s stand on and on for many years. Having said that, … Continue reading

China, Germany step up as U.S. retires from world leadership


The U.S. traditionally takes point in the search for common approaches to the big global issues of the day at G-20 summits. Not this time. When world leaders meet in Hamburg on Friday, China and Germany will move in to usurp the U.S.’s role. The U.S. traditionally takes point in the search for common approaches … Continue reading

Trump acting as a spokesman for China’s non-interference policy


U.S. President Donald Trump seems acting as a spokesman for China’s long-term non-interference foreign policy that even in the case of North Korea, Beijing refrains from exercising its power and influence to alter another sovereign state’s foreign policy forcefully. Who else can help China better to make all other Third World countries believe that Beijing … Continue reading

Germany warns that liberal world order would end if US cedes leadership to China and Russia


Germany’s veteran finance minister, Wolfgang Schaeuble, urged the U.S. to limit Russian and Chinese influence or risk bringing about “the end of our liberal world order.” The comments by Schaeuble, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet since she took office in 2005, are one of the strongest expressions of concern among European policy makers … Continue reading

China leaves the U.S. no other choice but ‘talk’ for Korea


Had Pyongyang really possessed nuclear warheads, no president of the United States, anyone, whoever, would dare to put the lives of his soldiers in South Korea (28,500) and Japan (54,000) at risk. The THADD missile defense system is not a 100% guarantee. By that time, the serving American president has only one option, namely, break … Continue reading

China’s growing use of non-conventional means to assert control over the South China Sea is raising concerns among neighboring countries and regional military planners.

China is trying to reshape the world In China’s image

The news would have us think that China’s reverse-engineered copy of a Soviet-made diesel aircraft carrier is nuclear-powered and in full commission. It’s not. It’s simply being towed from one construction site to another. But, it is another milestone step in progress and the West needs to pay close attention. With all the excitement over … Continue reading

Soup dumplings and the so-called clash of civilizations


A London restaurant released a video clip to promote its dumplings Xiao Long Bao — a small one-bite steamed dumplings with hot soup inside.

Drafting peace in the Pacific


We no longer live in a world without alliances. Yes, individual nations retain sovereignty within their borders. However, the days are over when a single nation will boss and police an entire region alone. One nation can no longer take out an “enemy” in another nation as the “lone ranger”. Any nation that tries will … Continue reading

Xi Jinping’s poker face waned. He’s not happy, though the reasons elude most Western readers. Though not democratic, Xi is a politician. He must balance wisdom with pleasing the veiled powers that overshadow the goings on of China. Those powers won’t hesitate to give the ax to any leader who fails to deliver on their … Continue reading

China have fished their waters dry, so now raiding other nations’ seas


The growth of China’s middle class over the past 15 years or so has driven up demand for all sorts of luxury goods in the country. For example, there’s been a growing interest in high-quality seafood—which comes at a most inopportune time. Efforts to boost China’s marine economy in recent decades, including offshore drilling and … Continue reading

Joined by leaders Lin and Chen, Joshua Wong from Hong Kong’s Umbrella movement urged the release of a Taiwanese college instructor, Lee Ming-che, from China’s … Continue reading

What it means to China after Trump says America respects all nations’ own path


By saying that “… America respects the right of all nations to chart their own path. My job is not to represent the world.

China dismisses human rights activists’ torture claims as ‘fake news’

The leading power in East Asia will be Japan, not China


By 2040, Japan will rise as East Asia’s leading power. This is one of our most controversial forecasts at Geopolitical Futures. Our readers know that GPF is bearish on China.

China upset at name change of de facto Japan embassy to include name “Taiwan”


China expressed dissatisfaction on Wednesday after Japan‘s de facto embassy in self-ruled Taiwan, which Beijing considers a breakaway province, said it would change its name to include the word Taiwan.
