Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has called on African countries to take part in the “One belt, One road” initiative, stressing that Africa had historically been a part of the Silk road economic belt, as well as of the Maritime Silk road.

Wang Yi called on Sunday on African states to participate in the Silk road project, aimed at connecting China with the rest of Eurasia, Oceania and East Africa.

“China calls on African countries to participate in the implementation of the ‘One belt, One road’ strategy,” Wang said, according to the statement published on the ministry’s website. He stressed that Africa had historically been a part of the Silk road economic belt, as well as of the Maritime Silk road.

“If any African country intends to participate in the new Silk road initiative, we certainly welcome this intention,” the minister said.

The foreign minister said that China has already held consultations on this account with a large enough number of African countries, especially those located on the Eastern coast of Africa, having achieved progress.

In 2013, the Chinese president proposed the construction of a new Silk Road, comprising the land-based Silk Road Economic Belt (SREB) and Maritime Silk Road, to facilitate the direct flow of goods from the Pacific Ocean to the Baltic Sea. The project is intended to connect China with Europe and strengthen economic ties between Asia, Europe and the Gulf states. Wang is currently on a five-day visit to Madagascar, Zambia, Tanzania, Congo and Nigeria.

  2. The New Silk Road. Might this be related to the Red Sea Islands conflict between Saudi Arabia and Egypt. (Saudi already in a conflict with Yemen.)
