During a BRICS meeting in Johannesburg, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi mistakenly claimed that India had landed on China when referring to the moon's southern region. This slip of the tongue inadvertently highlights the challenges of international cooperation, including territorial disputes, and contrasts the ease of space exploration with struggles to resolve Earthly conflicts.

Three recent articles in The New York Times have signaled a “new” narrative about China. Only weeks ago, China was America’s fearsome “peer competitor” on the world stage.

China’s influence in developing countries is crucial to its diplomacy. In the tumultuous China-U.S. rivalry, these relationships are crucial. China should promote quality and efficiency as it cooperates with other developing nations to bolster the overall interests of the Global South.

There is a persistence of “grand narratives” in the Sino-American relationship, including a moralistic struggle between 'Good and Evil,' oversimplified views of governance, and the homogenization of China and the U.S. It’s imperative we have more nuanced engagement and a departure from simplistic narratives to foster better understanding and cooperation.
