“China welcomes the opening of the Ukraine-Georgia-Azerbaijan-Kazakhstan-China rail way route,” spokesperson of the Foreign Ministry of China Hua Chunying has told a press conference.
“Eurasian countries are all very supportive of the building of the Silk Road Economic Belt and have been playing an active part in it. Besides the Trans-Siberian Railway and the New Eurasian Land Bridge that connect northeast and northern China with Europe, in recent years, new railway lines for cargo transport (Kazakhstan-Russia-Europe) have been opened.” “This is of great significance to promote infrastructure connectivity and facilitate trade along the Silk Road Economic Belt. As for the new route that Ukraine has developed with relevant countries, China also welcomes that,” Chunying added.
