Few major Western leaders to attend Chinese summit

China on Tuesday reinforced its call for India's participation in the Belt and Road connectivity initiative, telling that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), on which India has its reservations, was not linked to the Kashmir issue.

To achieve the ambitious goal, China took the lead in the establishment more than a year ago of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.

Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and Indonesian President Joko Widodo will also be attending the forum.

The Professor of International Politics at the Institute of West, Asian and African Studies at CASS said that many other African countries had been benefiting from the agreements reached on the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC).

Wang confirmed Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte as one of the leaders coming, along with the Spanish, Greek, Hungarian, Serb and Polish prime ministers and Swiss and Czech presidents. As for Russian Federation and China, we, the leaders of our countries, have agreed on conjugating the EAEU and One Belt, One Road.

"This is an economic cooperation forum, an worldwide cooperation platform that everyone is paying attention to, supports and hopes to participate in", he said, adding representatives of 110 countries would come.

Senate confirms Gorsuch for Supreme Court
Judge Gorsuch was on Friday confirmed by the Senate to be appointed as the 113th justice of the Supreme Court. But it's happened a few times , though well before the age of careful vetting of nominees and Senate hearings.

According to the foreign minister, Eurasia is the main region covered by the "One Belt, One Road" initiative, and the majority of participants represent this region, however, the framework of the initiative will be expanding.

During the forum, China is expected to sign cooperative documents with almost 20 countries and more than 20 global organizations, Wang told reporters.

But Mr. Wang said that China's stance on CPEC projects "had no relationship with the [Kashmir] dispute".

During the forum, parties will identify major cooperative projects, set up working groups and establish an investment cooperation center.

Such states as Germany and France have a desire to attend the forum, however, their leaders are unable to arrive in Beijing due to the elections in these states, the minister said, adding that London, Paris and Berlin plan to send their high level representatives. "And China also needs protection where her political and economic interest is".
