On the Trade and Military Agreement between Iran and China

CHIIR

In the last two or three months, leading media around the world have been paying attention to the “imminent” signing of a bilateral document, described as a Trade and Military Partnership, between China and Iran. The New York Times claims to obtain “an 18-page proposed agreement”. This may well be the case, as…

Guo Wengui – So Anti-Chinese that even US Establishment Cannot Stomach Him

GUO3452111

In some very rare cases, it is better to read British conservative, right-wing press, like The Economist or the Telegraph, instead of the mainstream liberal sheets like The Independent or The Guardian. That is if one wants to come somehow closer to the truth. The Economist is extremely biased; it is pre-historically conservative, anti…

Issue of Taiwan’s Newly Designed Passport Covers

TAI3242322

Only a few days ago, the author discussed what could be behind the move to leave out the “Republic of China” (ROC) title on the official name plate of the Taiwan Representative Office in the Republic of Somaliland (which practically none of the nations recognize as a state). And, more recently, there has been another piece of news about a redesigned cover…

By Making Relations with China Worse, Washington is Damaging its Ties with the EU

POMP834342

In recent years, against its own volition the world has witnessed a rapid deterioration in US-Chinese relations, which have already landed on a low level that has not been seen throughout the entire history of their official contacts since 1979. As Fox News reports, even US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo admits that current relations between…

PRC President on China and Tibet

XI6632422

President Xi Jinping’s speech at the 7th Central Symposium on Tibet Work on August 29 (an event seemingly dedicated to some of the country’s domestic issues) included quite a noteworthy message on foreign policy stemming from two inter-connected issues: the history of the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) and characteristics of modern politics…

The Biggest Lie About China’s Xinjiang “Internment Camps”

XI75332

For years now Western media and governments have maintained an almost ceaseless barrage against China over what they claim are networks of “internment camps” built and used in China’s western Xinjiang region to persecute the Uyghur ethnic minority. These claims are a mix of half-truths, truths taken out of context, and outright fabrications and lies. Yet…

Tensions around Taiwan are Intensifying

TAI743232

In yet another report about the Taiwan issue, the author, unfortunately, has nothing positive to say once again. Taiwan continues to dutifully contribute its share to one of the most painful problems plaguing the relationship between the two world powers. In August of this year, the negativity stemming from this issue and impacting the relations between Beijing and Washington…

Will America Change its Approach to China?

BID

It is not difficult to imagine as to why China is at the heart of the US presidential elections debate. The current US president has been nourishing an anti-China narrative ever since he became the president in 2016, moving from starting a ‘trade war’ with China to making deals and then re-starting the war in the wake of the pandemic, coming finally to the brink…

China‘s Growing Agriculture Crisis

CHI234222

For the past months the Peoples’ Republic of China has been subject to one after the other devastating shocks to its agriculture sector. A deadly outbreak of African Swine Fever that halved China’s huge pig herds in 2019, was followed by infestation from a plague of fall armyworms (FAW) which reached China in December, 2018 and now threaten China’s corn belt…

No Sunny Weather on the Horizon for US-China Relations

USC

NEO is constantly monitoring the timeline of events in deteriorating relations between the world’s two largest economic powers, yet one always hopes that there will be at least a little good news to tell readers about this time. Thus far, the bilateral trade agreement signed on January 15 this year remains almost the only glimmer of light that has trickled through…

US Smears Those Questioning Latest Claims vs. China

CHI5234121

The Coda Story – a media front funded and created by and for the US government, its “Atlanticist” partners, and the corporate interests driving the vast majority of Western foreign policy – recently ran a smear against alternative media figures questioning the US-led “Uyghur-Xinjiang” narrative. The smear is part of a wider campaign aimed at anyone questioning…

Recent Events in Hong Kong and Taiwan

NKG342322

The current state of affairs in Hong Kong and Taiwan remains one of the key sources of tensions plaguing the relationship between the two world powers, i.e. the United States and the PRC. There was yet another rise in anti-Chinese sentiment in Washington in response to the passing of the Hong Kong national security law by the Standing Committee…
