Back to Cold-War Mentality?
Many US scholars see confrontation as the key to preserving the global dominance of the US, even to the point of seeking regime change in China. That outdated outlook is dangerous to all parties in today’s world and a threat to stability.
Lin Wancheng,  a little-known businessman, has  left China months before his well-known elder brother Lin Jihua was first stripped of his ministerial position and later arrested.

Those who seek refuge in the US have been a thorn in Sino-American relations, and progress on a treaty replacing the case-by-case handling of such issues would be a welcome breakthrough when the leaders of the two countries meet next month.

China and U.S.: Building on the Iran Agreement

Serenity in the South China Sea
The U.S. must accept that a major shift in the Asia-Pacific balance of power has already taken place, and minimize provocation.

High Hopes for Historic Breakthroughs in Iranian Nuclear Talks
Mutual trust has been slow to evolve on the political front, but that continues to be key for any meaningful deal.
