Since the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) was proposed, China has reiterated on many public occasions that the BRI will strictly follow the principle of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits, insist on equal consultation and fully respect the choices of each country. With no political conditions attached, the BRI is an initiative that every country, regardless of the size, wealth and strength, can enjoy equal treatment and participate in the cooperation. Unlike the development aid, the BRI is based on equal partnership of all participants. In the building of the B&R, Chinese enterprises also want to make profits and will never do “a bad deal”. No matter how the outside world undermines the BRI, China will continue to fulfill its responsibility as a major country, offer foreign aid within its capacity, and conduct cooperation with countries along the route in a wide range of areas such as tourism, poverty alleviation, environmental protection and desertification prevention and controlling.
