"We welcome India's participation in the Belt and Road Initiative". "But we should look beyond the differences and concentrate on shared interests for development", the Chinese diplomat said.

The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was a core component of Belt and Road Initiative, and Pakistan strongly favors synergizing energies in the region to support this project, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said here Wednesday. However, Global Times, a Chinese daily, derided New Delhi's decision to skip the forum saying India was the only nation which expressed disapproval of the project. "In effect, Pakistan and China are suggesting that it is conceivable Kashmir can be segregated into separate units that merit unique economic, political and military engagement". "China is neutral to this".

Chairing the Annual Plan Coordination Committee meeting in Islamabad he said, "Pakistan has bright prospects of economic growth in years to come".

Donald Trump 'asked FBI Director James Comey to drop Michael Flynn investigation'
Comey's bombshell account of the February conversation is the latest headache for a White House increasingly in turmoil. Chaffetz is referring to what former F.B.I Director James Comey allegedly wrote after a meeting with President Trump.

The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation has concluded in Beijing with representatives from more than 130 countries and 70 international organisations taking part in the landmark summit. Beijing had previously invited New Delhi to join the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor - a network of roads, railways and pipelines linking Pakistan's southern port of Gwadar to China's western Xinjiang province - which Chinese President Xi Jinping has deemed central to OBOR. He also reasserted China's stand that BRI was not meant for geopolitical manoeuvring and claimed that apprehensions in certain sections about this has no basis.

It's not just the corridor, though: India has beef with the entire OBOR program.
