"Though originating in China, the Belt and Road Initiative BELONGS TO THE WHOLE WORLD".

China's President Xi Jinping has said his ambitious plan to build a new Silk Road-style trade route will be "open and inclusive" to all as he seeks to embed the nation at the heart of world trade.

At the same time, Hua said that China "welcomes the participation of India to the Belt and Road initiative, the answer is clear" when asked about India being the only major country absent at Sunday's first Belt and Road Forum (BRF) in Beijing.

"Not only does Russian Federation support this project, it will also actively participate in its implementation with China and other countries of interest", Putin said.
