"One Belt, One Road" Does not Infringe the Interests of U.S.
The project of the Silk Road Economic Belt, which was discussed at the forum in Beijing, does not threaten the interests of the United States, President of the Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) and ex-foreign minister of the Russian Federation Igor Ivanov said.
"We have always stressed that the Russian-Chinese partnership is not directed against any third country. We want to demonstrate that we are developing a culture of political relations which would be acceptable for all other countries", Ivanov said.
According to him, "Washington has no reason to worry about any Russian-Chinese projects". The goal of the project is to create a basis for cooperation between the states.
This initiative means a new stimulus for strengthening Eurasian regional security, and also stimulates the openness of economies on the basis of transparency, mutual benefit and identity of the development strategy.
On May 14-15, Beijing hosted a high-level forum on international cooperation within the "One Belt, One Road" strategy. The heads of 29 states and governments, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, took part in the event.
