Russia supports the Chinese idea of the revival of the Great Silk Road
Russia supports the initiative of the Chinese leadership to revive the Great Silk Road, said the Minister for the Development of the Far East, Alexander Galushka, during his speech at the visiting session of the Diplomatic Club of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, ITAR-TASS reported.
The idea of creating an "economic space of the Great Silk Road" was first publicly outlined by President of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping during his visit to Kazakhstan in September 2013. Galushka recalled that "Russia has traditionally played the role of a civilizational, economic and infrastructural corridor, a kind of connecting link between Asia and Europe, therefore we have serious intentions to participate in the project to revive the Silk Road." The Minister noted that the formation of the Maritime Silk Road, as well as the idea of reviving the Sino-Eastern Railway, is of particular interest.
