China has said it will give a global push to its ambitious Silk Road initiative after a UN Security Council resolution called for its implementation by member- states, notwithstanding India's sovereignty concerns in PoK. China's official assertion came as the state media here asked India to adopt a "more pragmatic" approach towards the initiative, claiming global support for President Xi Jinping's pet project whose stated aim is to link China with Euro-Asia through a maze of connecting rail, road and port projects.Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying told reporters here yesterday that in the Resolution 2344 unanimously adopted by the 15-member UNSC on March 17, the concept of building a community of shared future for mankind was incorporated for the first time, reflecting global cons

china's belt & road

The Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, launched in late 2013, is the signature project of Chinese President Xi Jinping. Now re-designated as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), it is one of the most ambitious programmes ever rolled out by any government.

india using kashmir to oppose silk road project: chinese media

India sees China's Silk Road initiative as a geopolitical competition and is using the Kashmir issue as an "unfounded excuse" to oppose the ambitious project, Chinese state media today alleged and asked New Delhi to "abandon" its "cliche mentality"."The official reason the Indian government rejected the offer to join the initiative (Silk Road) is that it is designed to pass through Kashmir. However, it is just an unfounded excuse as Beijing has been maintaining a consistent position on the Kashmir issue, which has never changed," one of the two articles on India by state-run Global Times said."India sees the Belt and Road initiative as a geopolitical competition," the article said, criticising India for hindering Beijing's push into South Asia and the world with multi-billion Silk Road pro

russia and china take it slow

Vladimir Putin has recently returned from the "One Belt, One Road" forum in Beijing, and everyone is satisfied. For China, it was very important that Putin attended. The forum, held over the weekend, was supposed to solidify China’s new role as a motor of economic integration in Eurasia. China has already decided to make the forum a regular event, and Russians involved in organizing the event feel China is essentially attempting to create a parallel G20. But major powers’ views on this forum are governed by their attitudes toward China’s ambitions. Of Beijing’s three major rivals in Asia, one (India) is boycotting the forum, while two (the United States and Japan) have decreased their participation to a bare minimum. Russia, on the other hand, was the only permanent member of the UN Securi

Nearly 5,000 years ago, long before the vast east-west trade routes of the Great Silk Road were traversed by Marco Polo, the foundations for these trans-Asian interaction networks were being carved by nomads moving herds to lush mountain pastures, suggests new research from Washington University in St. Louis.

china: 5 facts on xi jinping's belt & road initiative summit

It’s championed by pliant academics in state newspapers, danced about by ethnically diverse children in propaganda videos, and financed by fretful bankers with little hope of recouping their investments: China’s Belt and Road Initiative is a leviathan transnational infrastructure scheme that's hard to ignore.On Sunday, a two-day summit on President Xi Jinping’s keynote project opens in Beijing, attended by 1,500 delegates from 130 countries, including 29 heads of state and government. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte are the star names on show, and even North Korea is sending a delegation.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, known for his displays of sporting prowess, showed an artistic side on Sunday by playing two Soviet-era tunes on a piano during a visit to China.Putin, who was in Beijing for the One Belt, One Road conference, sat down at the baby grand piano while waiting to meet China's President Xi Jinping at the state Diaoyutai residence.

Tokyo wishes to counter-balance China in the Pacific Ocean with the help of New Delhi," an editorial in the Chinese version of the state-run Global Times said."All these seem to be strategic opportunities for India, but they are actually nothing more than traps. Once India falls into them, the country will become a pawn for the US and Japan and will lose numerous opportunities while facing more risks," it said."As a nation which sees itself as a major power, if India relies on external forces for its security, it will become more s

That's not because India was not invited, but because it has been reluctant to join the initiative," the article in the Global Times said.Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a media here today that "as far as India's participation is concerned, some Indian scholars have registered to attend the high-level meeting during the belt and road forum.
