China hosts global Silk Road forum
Speaking immediately after the host of the conference, Chinese President Xi Jinping, his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, noted that, unfortunately, “protectionism and unlawful restrictions” have become the new norm in the modern world.
“We should set a role model for the global community of how we can work together, develop together, based on equality and respect for national sovereignty based on international law and the principles of the United Nations ,” Putin said.
The Russian leader also called for the construction of transport corridors and the creation of large-scale energy projects.
“Civilization project for the future,” as Putin called the New Silk Road, should bring stability and prosperity along its way.
