- Abe's South China Sea meddling doomed to fail
- Currently on a four-nation tour of Europe, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is seeking the support of European countries in his bid to get the South China Sea disputes on the agenda for the G7 summit, to be held in Italy in May.
- Civil sector can boost PLA's modernization
- China has to break the institutional barriers blocking military-civilian integrated development, especially in the scientific and technological fields, to facilitate the convergence of strong scientific and technological forces for the development of the PLA.
- Japan's denial of history a sign of cowardice
- The Nanjing Massacre, the war crimes of mass murder and mass rape committed by Japanese troops against the residents of China's Nanjing City during the Second Sino-Japanese War, is a historical event widely recognized by the international community with countless evidences.
- US policy on DPRK shouldn't go further

- Lower defence budget reflects confidence
- Will a 7 percent budget increase affect the PLA's capacity building? Yes, but in a limited way. Thanks to the PLA's strenuous modernization efforts and China's sustained investment in its defense industry over the decades, the PLA has been able to advance by leaps and bounds.
- Scholar: South Korea gets more losses than gains from THAAD

- As Seoul quickens its steps to set up a U.S. missile defense system, conservative political elements in South Korea are putting the vital security interests of the country and the region at risk for their own gains.
- Increased military budget meets needs of the times
- China's decision to expand its 2017 defense budget by about 7 percent is both appropriate and necessary, since building its military capacity is not only a necessary requirement for it to safeguard its own national sovereignty and security but also for it to better play its role as a responsible world power.
