What's Meaningful Dialogue, India, China Scoffs On Belt And Road Row

India's myopic view that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is an initiative against it, led to New Delhi boycotting the Belt and Road forum, said a Chinese state media on Tuesday.

"What kind of dialogue is a meaningful dialogue?" Hua said when asked for her reaction to Bagley's remarks a day before the two-day Belt and Road Forum.

In a separate meeting with Gentiloni, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang also hailed the traditional friendship between China and Italy, while expressing the hope that both sides make full use of regular meetings between the Chinese premier and Italian prime minister to bolster political mutual trust and step up cooperation in key fields.

India has reservations about the project as it passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, which New Delhi says challenges its sovereignty by lending legitimacy to Islamabad's claim over the territory. The MEA also said "We have been urging China to engage in a meaningful dialogue. We are awaiting a response from the Chinese side".

In a statement to India Today on Monday, China similarly said that "the worldwide community's support speaks volumes" as it dismissed the concerns voiced by India's Ministry of External Affairs in a statement on the eve of the summit, which in addition to India's concerns on the CPEC also questioned the wider principles underpinning OBOR, stating that "connectivity initiatives must be based on universally recognised global norms, good governance, rule of law, openness, transparency and equality" and "avoid projects that would create unsustainable debt burden for communities".

I think our position has also been clear and we are always waiting. We always want India to participate in the Belt and Road initiative.

"If they have the answer they can give me the answer in public and private".

What Trump said about sharing 'facts' with Russians
The tweets come a day after a Washington Post report claimed President Trump shared classified information with Russian officials. The disclosure also risks harming his credibility with USA partners around the world ahead of his first overseas trip.

Hua said China always followed the principle of extensive consultation with other countries on the project over which India has sovereignty concerns.

"The Belt and Road initiative is for regional peace and prosperity".

"Rising nationalism has made Indian public opinion extremely sensitive on China-related issues", the editorial describes India's current situation regarding relations with the neighbouring state.

"The European Investment Bank, the EU Bank, recognises the potential of the Belt and Road Initiative to promote economic growth and strengthen worldwide cooperation". CPEC is not about the conflict with various sides and will not affect China's position on the Kashmir issue. It is an open initiative and welcomes various parties, Hua said.

Then it goes on to say that "China insists the Kashmir dispute is between India and Pakistan and it has no intention of intervening". Facts about the initiative have shown that the Belt and Road project responded to the trend of times and is in line with the common interests of the people, Hua said, reiterating China's stand.

For his part, Gentiloni said the just-concluded Belt and Road Forum had sent a positive signal to the world economy and global trade. "It was a successful, productive and fruitful event", she said.
