  • Serving the Country and Contributing to the World: China’s Diplomacy in a Time of Unprecedented Global Changes and a Once-in-a-Century Pandemic/ Wang Yi
    2020 is a watershed in human history, a milestone in China’s national development,  and a groundbreaking year for China’s external relations. Under the strong leadership  of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core, the diplomatic  front, by fighting the novel coronavirus and the “political virus” at the same time,  has made new contributions to safeguarding national interests and global stability.
  • Significance of Xi Jinping Thought on Diplomacy in Combating COVID-19 with Solidarity/ Ruan Zongze
    Xi Jinping Thought on Diplomacy is a momentous achievement of epoch-making  significance in the development of New China’s diplomatic theories. The once-in-acentury pandemic and unprecedented changes are unfolding in parallel and impacting  each other, catalyzing the evolution of the international pattern, which stresses the  importance and urgency of building a community with a shared future for mankind.
  • Safeguarding Maritime Rights and Interests in the New Era: China’s Concept and Practice/ Xu Ping
    As the product of an accurate comprehension of both the trend of the times and  China’s own development stage, the concept of safeguarding maritime rights and  interests in the new era serves as a realistic and far-reaching guiding principle to  conduct current and future maritime rights protection. Under its guidance, a new  pattern of China’s maritime interaction with neighboring countries and major  powers outside the region is taking shape.
  • Mutually Assured Interdependence and the Building of a New Type of China-US Relations/ Zhang Yuyan & Xu Xiujun
    The current twists and turns in the China-US relations are not a result of overinterdependence, but rather reflect the need for a more comprehensive, closer and  well-balanced mutually assured interdependence. In the construction of a new type  of China-US relations, the two countries must abandon the mentalities of mutually  assured destruction based on the notion of deterrence, Cold War thinking, zerosum game and competition of systems.
  • The Future of China-US Relations: Toward a New Cold War or a Restart of Strategic Cooperation?/ Wang Fan
    The China-US relationship has long transcended the bilateral sphere and is of global  significance and impact. With likely adjustments to American foreign policy under  a new US administration, China holds expectations for the bilateral relationship.  While maintaining the overall stability of economic ties, the two countries should  resume collaboration in response to non-traditional security challenges and  strengthen cooperation on traditional security issues.
  • China and the US Should Maintain and Strengthen People-to-People Exchanges/ Xing Liju
    Some US politicians have been instigating the “clash of civilizations” thesis against  China, which has greatly harmed the development of China-US relations and  runs counter to the world’s desire for peaceful development. The two countries  should actively strengthen people-to-people exchanges, promote dialogue among  civilizations, and enhance mutual understanding and cooperation, thereby building  a community with a shared future for mankind.
  • Lancang-Mekong Cooperation and the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor: Basis and Paths of Their Synergy/ Wang Rui

    Though faced with challenges such as differences in strategic interests, interference from extraterritorial powers, underdevelopment of cross-border infrastructure, and insufficiency of customs efficiency and integration, the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor, as part of the Belt and Road construction linking western China with ASEAN countries, holds out a great prospect for a synergy with the Lancang-Mekong Cooperation.

  • Progress and Limits of Russia-Japan Relations/ Wang Haibin
    Japan and Russia have promoted bilateral relations through summit diplomacy  during the Abe era, but many limits remain in developing the relationship under the  appearance of close ties. Looking to the future, while the relations may be drifting  toward conflicts without the settlement of the territorial issue or the guarantee of  a peace treaty, decoupling is unlikely due to the two countries’ political will and  realistic interests to deepen bilateral relations.
