CHINA – INDIA
New Silk Road praised by 27 countries, suspected by many others, boycotted by India
India did not attend the Beijing summit because it is against the US$ 57 billion Kashmir corridor project between China and Pakistan. President Xi Jinping got 27 countries to sign up to fund the ambitious Chinese infrastructure plan. He says China will “share” and not interfere in the social models of the countries concerned, renewing China’s push for globalisation.

Corruption and human rights abuses cast a shadow over OBOR, Xi Jinping’s mega project
Corruption is not just the result of a money exchange; it also comes from a lack of transparency when agreements are implemented. One cannot expect a new Gospel from a government that promotes repression and abuse. An exiled Chinese scholar looks at the issue. Courtesy of ChinaChange.

With 'One belt, One road', the New Silk Road, China shows its strength. But is it really capable?
Xi Jinping makes "a show of strength" at an economic and military level, but many doubt that China can sustain such a financial burden. For many countries, major projects in Central Asia, South Asia, and the South and East China Sea hide very dangerous ghostly dreams. Europe is distrustful. Only Italy is participating in the "One belt, One road" meeting in Beijing this weekend. The analysis of scholar Willy Lam. Courtesy of The Jamestown Foundation.

'One belt one road': the problems in international relations of the New Silk Road
The project’s pharaonic prospects reveal China’s desire to redefine the entire international geopolitical framework, to become the economic and political center of the Eurasian industry and trade sectors. Indian opposition; Russian fears; European skepticism. And the problems of the Uighurs, Central Asia, Iran and the South China Sea. China caught between national interests and the desire to distribute wealth.
