Belt & Road Initiative to open new stage of cooperation: Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that he hopes the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative will start a new stage of cooperation in Eurasia and beyond. <br /><br />This initiative is unique and successful, said Putin when answering a question raised by Xinhua after his annual "direct line" call-in session. <br /><br />"The main thing that we must do is to unite our efforts within the frameworks of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and the Belt and Road Initiative," said Putin. <br /><br />The Belt and Road Initiative proposed by China in 2013 consists of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road. It aims to build a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along and beyond the ancient Silk Road trade routes. <br /><br />The EAEU comprises Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, with an aim to encourage regional economic integration through the free movement of goods, services and people within the union. <br /><br />Putin expressed confidence that the two development plans will be connected as Russia and China "have many overlapping goals and complementary opportunities." <br /><br />"I have no doubt that we will work together and this work will be effective and beneficial for the Chinese and Russian people as well as the global economy," he said.
