Chinese President Xi Jinping delivered a keynote speech at the opening of the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF) on Friday. He introduced measures China will take to further expand its opening-up. Apart from widening access to capital markets and strengthening protection of intellectual property rights, China will not seek a trade surplus, will import more agricultural products and services and will not pursue currency devaluation that harms others.
BRI is a groundbreaking international endeavor for the 21st century. The initiative has shown such powerful growth that even the greatest of obstacles cannot block. BRI will never be talked down to, and those who choose to speak negatively about it will only harm their own reputation.
Strengthened communication between China, Russia and North Korea is conducive to maintaining the current peaceful situation on the Korean Peninsula and for promoting further talks on North Korea's denuclearization. Thus, it should be supported.
If opposition parties can freely implement political extremism with Western support, Hong Kong will be completely messed up. However, Hong Kong alone cannot shoulder the responsibility of its future prosperity. The whole country has to shoulder it.
One needs courage to set aside prejudice and face reality. Some insightful people in the US believe that Washington should not ignore the benefits the BRI projects have brought to the world economy. Washington and its followers should be brave to acknowledge the BRI's success, and to build relationships with the BRI and jointly shape the future.
We must resolutely maintain the social and spiritual independence of Chinese society and thwart attempts by extremist groups to enter the country. No matter how chaotic the world is, we have to make sure that our landscape is good.
The PLA Navy will continue to grow. It will make great progress in hardware by its 80th anniversary. We hope this will be a process in which the Western Pacific Ocean consolidates peace and deepens reciprocal cooperation.
There is a need to strengthen coordination among countries. If the issue can be dragged, then let it drag. Otherwise, the issue can be modified. If it cannot be modified, let it be analyzed on a case-by-case basis. On the issue of boycotting US sanctions against Iraq, we cannot disregard principles or interests. This is a time to test wisdom.
Major countries' navies grew powerful in history because of the need to expand. But the PLA Navy has become powerful because it does not want to be bullied. Although China has disputes with part of the outside world, it has the will to resolve issues peacefully. The world should understand China's military and diplomatic philosophy to really understand China.
The US hopes to crack down on China's high-tech development as well as its 5G technology. European countries should not be deceived by the US and must understand all the environmental factors of Huawei's case.
If they believe such false information that alleges Huawei is funded by the PLA, they are just like a kindergarten child at the mercy of their US teacher.
Obstructing the academic exchange between the two countries will further isolate the US, a result due to their actions. The US is choosing to ignore unlimited opportunities to expand scientific exchange with China.
The US political elites are ruining their country's good image in Chinese society which accumulated over time. We'd like to remind the US elites that such unscrupulous destruction will certainly lead to consequences. Anyone who pushes China and the US into an all-round confrontation would be a sinner in history. The US elites should have the vigilance and bear the responsibilities of not ruining the 21st century.
The world is also re-recognizing China. This country is strong, determined, and capable of tackling great challenges and making incredible achievements. Other countries should never underestimate and coerce China.
That the Notre Dame fire has immediately become a global focus reflects the unprecedented high level of globalization. But it has been mixed with much regret. In any case, the integration of human emotions is a general trend. More and more common challenges will continuously push us into a community of shared interests and emotions.
No matter how petty-minded the US becomes, we sincerely hope the Chinese government will keep opening-up. Being open will bring more strategic gains than being suspicious.
We believe the Labour Law and market adjustments will play a role in helping us overcome the transition period and bring changes. We call on Chinese companies to attach importance to the irreversible changes that are taking place in social production, actively respond to them and make adjustments accordingly. Whoever maintains its vitality following the trend will be more able to win the next round of competition.
US President Donald Trump on Friday called on the US to accelerate 5G deployment. “The race to 5G is a race America must win,” Trump stressed, “We want to be the leader in this.”
Greece's ascension to the CEEC is both a joyous event for the country and a positive gain for the cooperation. It is also a benefit to the EU.
