'India Should Stop Being Suspicious Towards Pakistan, China'

As you can see, China is making significant inroads into the development of a new China-based trading partnership that will allow it access to global markets without the fear of interference by the world's sole superpower.

Meanwhile, India has been rather outspoken about its reservations with the project.

"It (CPEC) has no connections to or impact on sovereignty issues".

It is evident that China doesn't want an Indian boycott of the important forum.

Ahead of the conference, Foreign Secretary Shankar Das Bairagi and Chinese Ambassador to Nepal, Yu Hong will sign the framework agreement on OBOR in the presence of Foreign Minister Prakash Sharan Mahat here this week.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will be among 28 heads of state and government who will be attending the summit. "Instead of being overly concerned about China's rise, New Delhi should consider taking an early role in Beijing's Belt and Road initiative", the article by Liu Jianxi said.

"As the CPEC proceeds and Pakistan's investment environment improves, I believe more third-country investors will be attracted to participate in the projects", Sha said.

"Currently, most of the projects are financed by Chinese and Pakistani companies".

India has been severely critical of the CPEC, saying the project violates its sovereignty as it runs through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

India has also maintained its opposition to Pakistan ceding Aksai Chin region to the Chinese.

The Wire was not able to obtain an explanation from the Chinese embassy for the redaction of the ambassador's speech till the time of of publication.

Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Pakistan, an official body, said the CPEC has attracted United States dollars 46 billion investments so far and become one of the flagship projects in the China-proposed "One Belt, One Road" - the official name for Silk Road initiative.

Since becoming Penang MCA chairman, Tan said he had visited the Consul General of China in Penang Wu Jun and China's Ambassador to Malaysia Dr Huang Huikang to discuss the Belt and Road initiative and China's investment in Penang.

"China and India have had successful experience of delinking sovereignty disputes with bilateral relations before", Luo said. In history, we have had close cooperation along the ancient Silk Road.

"Why shouldn't... support this kind of cooperation today. China is honest in its intention to cooperate with India on the One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative, as it is good for both of us", he said.

India feels China isn't looking for cooperation but for blind acceptance of its approach. Then we supported a settlement through bilateral negotiation in line with the Simla Agreement. Thirdly, strive for an early harvest on the border issue.

China has proposed a four-point initiative to overcome differences and deepen relations that includes aligning its One Belt One Road (OBOR) project with India's "Act East Policy" and restarting negotiations on a free trade pact, the Press Trust of India news service reported.

Meanwhile, a section amongst the diplomatic community in the country also seeks engagement with China on the BRI.
