NEW DELHI -- As U.S. President Barack Obama prepares to embark on an historic visit to Cuba, the future of the communist-ruled island is the subject of widespread speculation. Some observers are hoping that the ongoing shift toward capitalism, which has been occurring very gradually under Raúl Castro's direction, will naturally lead Cuba toward democracy. Experience suggests otherwise.

BEIJING -- During his visit, Xi repeatedly mentioned cybersecurity and the digital economy. His remarks on one hand indicated that taking advantage of information technologies to facilitate economic transformation, improving the government's governance capabilities and making information technologies benefit people are the Chinese government's firm priorities; on the other hand, they conveyed the Chinese leadership's idea that "national security is out of the question without cybersecurity."

Why Trump Is Wrong About China, China, China

After the devaluation of the yuan and the dive in China's stock exchanges, the blowback on American markets and the presidential candidates lining up to blame China, President Xi Jinping may be wishing he'd booked his visit for another time. But now is the perfect opportunity to set the record straight. The latest round of China bashing overestimates China's clout and distorts our discourse.

US Should Support a Strong China

Skillful diplomacy with China can lead to substantial benefits for our two countries and the world at large. But the more we get caught up in conflict, the more we undermine our efforts to expand our economic and political influence and bring peace and stability to an increasingly important part of the world.

There is no higher priority in relations between the U.S. and China than to begin serious cyber detente negotiations to establish a code of conduct.

As Iran Deal Moves Forward, Nuclear Diplomacy With China Falters

Xi's interest in placing China's nuclear weapons on a higher state of alert could create a new nuclear danger; the potential for an accidental or mistaken Chinese launch.

What President Obama Should Say to President Xi on Trade

What are President Obama's goals in the international trade area when President Xi visits the United States next week? I worry that there is not one among them that will change the U.S. trade picture. And unfortunately, when we look at the trade relationship with China, there is much that needs to be changed.

China's Think Tanks Need to Reach Out and Connect

BEIJING -- Chinese think tanks must be independently minded and objective in their analysis -- seeking truth from facts -- if their contribution is to be of sound use to policymakers.

America's China Consensus Slowly Unravels

The big risk is that neither side will be willing to make concessions, because each expects the other to blink first. That leads straight to escalating rivalry and an ever-higher risk of war.

Cooperation on Curbing Nukes and Climate Change Strengthens U.S.-China Link

BEIJING -- The fact that China and the U.S. have agreed to pursue the goal of denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula has kept the issue from getting out of control. The year 1950 witnessed violent confrontation between China and U.S. in the Korean theater, but 2015 is a long way from 1950. China-U.S. cooperation has been a significant factor in keeping the lid on this conflict.

Western Media Are Missing China's Biggest Story

BEIJING -- In the Western media, the National People's Congress -- China's legislative body -- is perfunctorily conjoined with the phrase "rubber stamp." This characterization is less and less true every year and does a disservice to understanding the most significant historic shift taking place in China today: the long march toward "rule according to law" from administrative fiat.

Unless the destructive impacts of global warming are brought to a heel, a "frightening world" lies in wait. That's according to the head of World Bank Jim Yong Kim who unveiled the group's latest climate report over the weekend.

Asia has been infected by a silent, healthy virus of modernization. There is a remarkably wide and deep consensus among regional leaders that they should focus on modernization and pragmatic development. Because it is silent, the Western media has not noticed and continues to predict doom.

The president of the Philippines, Benigno Aquino, became the second of two close American allies (after Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe) to shake hands with President Xi Jinping of China this week. Xi and Aquino shared promises to constructively manage tensions in the South China Sea, a promising step forward after several years of maritime incursions into territory both countries claim as their own.

Now that Xi and Abe have had their icy handshake, China and Japan need to move forward. Hotlines are necessary, but so is continued leadership: for President Xi, to ensure that anti-Japanese nationalism does not dictate policy towards Tokyo; for Prime Minister Abe, to tamp down tendencies towards historical revisionism.
