Berlin. China sought to ease Germany’s concerns over New Silk Road project and related initiatives, stressing that they are not intended to undermine the European Union, Anadolu Agency reports.

Speaking at a joint news conference with his German counterpart Heiko Maas on Thursday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China’s "16+1 initiative” with Central and Eastern European countries was aimed at contributing to economic growth, enhancing economic cooperation.


“I would like to underline that we continue to support the integration process in Europe, we want the EU remain united and prosperous,” he said.

Wang also underlined that they shared with Germany the vision of a multipolar world and of global free trade. 


“It is not in the interest of China to cause divisions between European states, we do not want to divide Europe,” he stressed. 


EU’s heavyweight Germany has been skeptical about China’s "16+1 cooperation”, and senior political figures openly criticized Beijing for seeking political influence with this initiative. 
The initiative, which brings together China, 11 EU member states and five Balkan states, has been part of Beijing’s ambitions “One Belt One Road” plan, also referred to as the New Silk Road. 


China has significantly increased its investments in the region, since it introduced the One Belt One Road initiative in 2013, which involves grand infrastructure projects to connect Eurasian countries with China

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
