China's Xi pledges 100 billion yuan for Silk Road

China's Xi appeals to foreign leaders for freer trade

This is State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi's second trip to China since her National League for Democracy (NLD) took power in April 2016.

Baglay also mentioned that India is awaiting positive response from China.

"What kind of dialogue is a meaningful dialogue?"

Notably, however, India boycotted the summit to demonstrate its opposition to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which is a flagship OBOR project connecting China and Pakistan with road, rail and pipeline links that cross the disputed territory of Kashmir.

Rwanda's ambassador to China, Lt. Gen. Charles Kayonga has praised the Belt and Road initiative as a platform for Africa to grow with the rest of the world.

Xi said the world must create conditions that promote open development and encourage the building of systems of "fair, reasonable and transparent global trade and investment rules".

Conte ready to discard players who want out at Chelsea
The young Brazilian striker has hit form for Man City at the right time as the club pushes for Champions League qualification. Chelsea have long had this season's title sewn up. " It's important for me that every player must have the pleasure to stay ".

Xi urged worldwide organisations, including the EU and the African Union, to sign up to his "Belt and Road" agenda, according to Chinese state news agency Xinhua. The wide participation and endorsement of Chinese initiative by overwhelming majority of the world community is a guarantee of success of OBOR and CPEC and India is going to get nothing but frustration and embarrassment if it persists with its negative approach.

He added: "We have every reason to be confident in the future of the Belt and Road. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to advance the Malaysian economy together with the Chinese economy". "It is not directed at any third parties, not relevant to disputes over territorial sovereignty and does not affect China's position on the Kashmir issue", the statement said.

"The Belt and Road development does not shut out, nor is it directed against, any party".

The CPEC has emerged as a thorny issue between India and China, whose ties have been under strain over issues including Beijing blocking New Delhi's bid for the Nuclear Suppliers Group and Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama's visit to Arunachal Pradesh in northeast India last month. It is an open initiative and welcomes various parties, Hua said. UN Bodies and regional organisations have embraced it, as multiple projects under the "One Belt-One Road" have complementarity.

"I want to invite you all to build strong cooperation with us in Indonesia and Asean [Association of Southeast Asian Nations] to work with our raw materials and energy resources, so that together we can develop a chain of production along the Silk Road", Jokowi said.
