SINGAPORE, March 13 (Xinhua) — China is not seeking unilateral gains from the Belt and Road Initiatives and the first major pilot projects will be crucial in boosting the strategy, a veteran diplomat said here in Singapore.
Wu Jianmin, who is also the former president of the China Foreign Affairs University, made the remarks at a lecture organized by the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS), a graduate school of Nanyang Technological University of Singapore.
During the lecture and the interview with Xinhua afterwards on Thursday, Wu said the most important change in international relations over the past centuries is the theme change from “war and revolution” to “peace and development”, and the latter is what China embraces to kick-start the Belt and Road Initiatives in this region.
