外文标题：China says Silk Road is taking shape despite India's reluctance to join
BEIING: China is confident that its Silk Road Economic Belt plan has basically taken shape although India, a crucial link in the program, has not yet agreed to join it. Chinese leaders are still persuading India to join it.
"The Silk Road Economic Belt will be characterized by openness and reciprocity, and China welcomes all sides' participation in the plan and sharing of the benefits," Chinese vice foreign minister Cheng Guoping told journalists.
The statement comes ahead of vice premier Li Keqiang's upcoming tour to Kazakhstan and Thailand, where he will push for infrastructure projects connected with the program. He will also attend the meeting of the prime ministers of Shanghai Cooperation Organization countries. China is also trying to enlist SCO's support for its program.

If, Nehru had not given Kashmir to Pakistan and Tibet to China, It would be India in the driving seat. Now, India only can watch, live in regret and follow. Will India ever take Pakistan occupied Kashmir ? Unfortunately the answer is NO, but if yes, then India will have borders with Central Asian Republics and Afghanistan and Pakistan will become an non-entity. India is isolated, only because Nehru handed over Kashmir to Pakistan, for 5 minute's pleasure, you know with whom.

We need roads for our military trip to China. No need of silk road with untrustworthy Chinese
Don't trust China.. they are capturing everything. Better to develop Indian production and market, side by side, maintain independent relations with those countries which will help us.

People who are scared of terror must know, terror doesnt apply for a visa or with your permission. Silk Route has its potential we should all embrace it.
