Chinese Diplomat: Indian has always stuck to One Belt, One Road

China, April 25 (Uitv) - The Belt and Road Initiative has been given a sweeping push by the Chinese. They have now scheduled  an International Cooperation meet from 14th to 15th May in Beijing. President Xi Jinping  will host the meet. Leaders from 28 countries and delegates from 110 countries are expected to attend the meet. Also in attendance will be the UN Secretary General and representatives of large numbers of organisations

First of all, from a historical and cultural perspective, India has always been on the Belt and Road.

Today’s Belt and Road Initiative is stretching in two directions, the land and the sea, roughly similar to the ancient Silk Road network. The  Belt and Road Initiative is the inheritance and upgrade of the ancient Silk Road, as well as the revival of the ancient Silk Road and Asia.

Second, from the perspective of reality, India has already closely linked to the Belt and Road Initiative.

China is strongly pushing for the integration of the development strategies between the Belt and Road Initiative and Shanghai Cooperation Organization and its member states
