China’s Xi On Whirlwind Tour to Boost Mideast Trade

China actively promoting a new ‘Silk Road’ which would involve China as the key power of Eurasia

The Chinese President, Xi Jinping, has embarked on a tour of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the Islamic Republic of Iran. Officially, he will not be speaking of politics, but only of economy. China is proposing that the states of the Near East participate in the construction of a new « Silk Road » in order to enhance their development and liberate themselves from Western colonialism.
