  • Interview: China-Africa cooperation has revitalized war against malaria: WHO official

    Akpaka Kalu, Team leader, Tropical and Vector-borne Diseases Program at WHO Regional Office for Africa said strategic collaboration with China has reinvigorated the continent's battle with malaria.

  • Interview: Extension of China-Russia treaty reflects closer bilateral ties -- expert

    "Putin is reaffirming its ties to China" and the two countries are without doubt getting closer, said the expert.

     The extension of the China-Russia Treaty of Good-Neighborliness and Friendly Cooperation reflects closer bilateral ties, a scholar has said.

    The joint statement on the extension of the treaty, issued during Monday's talks between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin via video link, reflects the deepening of China-Russia relationship, Andre Liebich, honorary professor of international history and politics at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, said in an interview with Xinhua.

  • Italy confirms WHO asks for re-checks of research on when coronavirus first surfaced

    Milan Cancer Institute (INT) in Italy on Friday confirmed to China Media Group that the World Health Organization (WHO) has requested it to re-check blood samples collected in 2019 that were reported to have SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.

    INT authorities said no further details will be provided for now, and a press release will be issued on the matter in the next few days.

  • Misguiding U.S. reports on COVID-19 origin sourcing hurt U.S. credibility

    The so-called "lab leak theory" recently fabricated by the U.S. is just lame. It followed the same old trick in which certain media outlets published biased reports and then some politicians hyped them up.

    However, such "comedy duo," which has been frequently staged, further revealed the ugly intention of the White House to politicize the pandemic and stigmatize other countries.

  • Misjudgments of CPC blind West of reality and future

    Why do some Western politicians and scholars show much more intention to demonize the Communist Party of China (CPC) when they know very little about the largest political party in the world? To understand China today, one must first know more about the CPC. As the Chinese people are about to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the CPC, the Global Times reporter Bai Yunyi interviewed the country's top political scientist Zheng Yongnian, presidential chair professor, acting dean of the School of Humanities and Social Science and the Founding Director of the Advanced Institute of Global and Contemporary China Studies, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen. He talked about how to see the legitimacy of the CPC and how it reached reforms goals through non-Western ways.

  • Nation can help lead global fight against climate change

    President Xi Jinping's pledge on Saturday of China's further commitments to tackling global climate challenges consolidates his earlier announcements for the country to peak emissions before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060.

    It is crucial to note that the gains to China and the world from climate action are far greater in the immediate years than in the later years, when the socioeconomic cost of mitigation would have risen exponentially.

  • Nation's semiconductor industry at a turning point

    Recently, there has been much news about the global shortage of semiconductor chips. Some pundits have called it a crisis because China is the world's largest consumer of semiconductors, taking up more than 50 percent of the global supply, and yet its production of high-end chips is limited.

    United States sanctions on technology exports to China, as well as pandemic-related supply chain disruptions, have caused a severe chip shortage. Businesses and consumers around the world are now facing growing supply concerns.

  • NPC has power, responsibility to improve HKSAR’s electoral system

  • One-China policy never to be played with

    The World Health Assembly (WHA), the highest decision-making body of the World Health Organization (WHO), on May 24 refused to include a proposal on Taiwan’s participation in its agenda, which fully indicated that adherence to the one-China principle is a universal consensus of the international community.

    There is only one China in the world. The Government of the People’s Republic of China is the only legal government representing the whole of China, and Taiwan is an inalienable part of China’s territory.

  • PD Editorial: A hundred years of glory created, an eternal cause to build

    The past century has witnessed many hardships and achievements. At this important moment when the new journey of building a modern socialist country in an all-round way starts smoothly, we usher in the 100th anniversary of the Communist Party of China (CPC). Standing at this critical historical juncture, looking back at the past winding road, overlooking the road ahead of struggles, we are full of excitement, passion and pride.

  • Rocket debris 'common, likely to fall in intl waters' despite Western hyping of 'China space threat'

    Debris from China's Long March-5B Y2 carrier rocket, which sent the first section of China's space station into orbit, is very likely to fall in international waters and people needn't worry, Chinese space analysts told the Global Times on Wednesday.

    Wreckage from rocket launches falling back to Earth is common in the aerospace field, and the Pentagon's reported claim that the rocket wreckage will fly back "out of control" and "may cause damage if it hits inhabited areas" is nothing but Western hype of the "China threat" in space technology advancement, observers noted.

  • Scholar explains why China deeply misunderstood: media

    Far too many China "experts" have put focus on changing the country instead of understanding how it works and why it succeeds, said David Dodwell, executive director of the Hong Kong-APEC Trade Policy Study Group.

    HONG KONG, June 30 (Xinhua) -- The reason why China has been deeply misunderstood by some observers is that they have tried to change the country rather than to truly know it, espe

  • Senior Chinese diplomat holds phone conversation with U.S. secretary of state

    Yang Jiechi, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and director of the Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the CPC Central Committee, on Friday held a phone conversation with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken at the latter's request.

    Noting that dialogue and cooperation should be the mainstay of China-U.S. relations, Yang said cooperation must be mutually beneficial and address each other's concerns in a balanced manner.

  • Six cities touch 80% threshold for herd immunity

    As China accelerates its vaccination pace, the Global Times found that six cities - Beijing, four cities in South China's Hainan Province, and Dalian in Northeast China's Liaoning Province - have a first-dose coverage rate above 80 percent, touching the threshold for herd immunity. In Southwest China's Yunnan Province, 25 land border ports have also achieved the goal.

    Fresh data for Shanghai, and some major cities in South China's Guangdong and Central China's Hubei provinces, show first-dose vaccination rates close to or exceeding 70 percent. They are soon to reach herd immunity when people get their second doses as scheduled, observers said on Wednesday.

  • Socialism with Chinese characteristics suits China’s national conditions the best: former Hungarian PM Peter Medgyessy

    The leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the social system of socialism with Chinese characteristics suit China the best and are bound to help China continue with development and achieve greater progress in the future, former Hungarian Prime Minister Peter Medgyessy said in an interview with People’s Daily recently.

    Every country is looking for a social system that best fits its history, culture and fundamental realities, Medgyessy said.

  • TCM soup can help cut COVID-19 death rate of patients in half, study shows

    Qingfei paidusoup, a widely used traditional Chinese medicine to treat COVID-19 infections, can help reduce the rate of death among hospitalized patients by half, a recent study has shown.

  • Transportation sector sees Qingming Festival rebound

    China's transportation sector witnessed a rebound during the three-day Tomb Sweeping Day holiday due to effective epidemic prevention and control measures across the country and the growing number of people receiving vaccinations.

    Tomb Sweeping Day, also known as Qingming Festival, fell on Sunday this year. Traditionally, it is the time when Chinese people commemorate the dead. It was also the first national holiday since Spring Festival, when people had been encouraged to stay put due to COVID-19 epidemic control measures.

  • UK report interferes in China's internal affairs

    With geopolitics being high on the agenda of the G-7 Summit this weekend, the British government released on Thursday its so-called "six-month report on Hong Kong", lavishing aspersions on Beijing as well as the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and providing much-needed ammunition for a new round of China bashing.

    But British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab must have disappointed his allies again in the ongoing China-bashing crusade by merely repeating his usual empty platitudes.

  • Walk the talk: Xi leads China in fight for carbon-neutral

    Almost half a year after Chinese President Xi Jinping's pledge to make the country carbon-neutral before 2060, the roadmap to achieve the goal is getting clearer under Xi's push as authorities and industries scale up their green efforts.

    China aims to have CO2 emissions peak before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060, Xi announced at the general debate of the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly via video in September last year.

  • Western allegation of genocide in Xinjiang hardly convincing: Singaporean newspaper

    The Western allegation of so-called "genocide" in China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region lacks solid evidence and is therefore hardly convincing, said an opinion piece by Singapore's Chinese-language newspaper Lianhe Zaobao on Wednesday.

    Despite the overwhelming firepower of the Western propaganda war against China, the so-called "evidence" available to the West is very limited, consisting of only a few so-called leaked documents and one-sided statements by what Beijing calls separatists, said the article by Wu Jungang, a former member of Parliament of Singapore.
