On the sidelines of a Belt and Road forum in Beijing Friday, Hammond did not directly say whether Britain was considering signing an agreement to support the initiative, as Italy did last month.

Putin lauds China infrastructure initiative, warming ties

Apr 26, 2019

BEIJING — Russian President Vladimir Putin praised China's Belt and Road infrastructure initiative Friday, underscoring warming ties between the neighboring powers. Putin's comments Friday to a forum in Beijing appeared to downplay the potential for tensions between China and Russia. They also reflect Beijing and Moscow's shared resistance to U.S. global influence. The Belt and Road is rapidly expanding China's economic footprint in Central Asia, Moscow's traditional sphere of influence. But in an interview published Thursday remarking on 70 years of diplomatic relations, Putin praised Russia-China ties. "It would be no exaggeration to say that our countries have approached this...

China's Xi promotes building initiative amid debt worries

Apr 26, 2019

BEIJING — President Xi Jinping promised Friday to promote high financial standards for China's infrastructure-building initiative as Beijing tries to dispel complaints the multibillion-dollar program leaves developing countries with too much debt. Xi avoided mentioning debt in a speech at the opening of a Belt and Road forum attended by leaders of three dozen countries to celebrate his signature foreign initiative. But he said Beijing wants "open, green and clean cooperation" with "zero tolerance for corruption." Developing countries welcome the initiative to expand trade by building roads, ports and other facilities across a vast arc of countries from Asia through...
