Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping has con­firmed that his coun­try would be fully pre­pared to ex­ert joint ef­forts with Arab states to build the new eco­nomic belt and silk road with firm steps ac­cord­ing to the con­sul­ta­tion, part­ner­ship and shar­ing be­tween the two sides to open wider and more com­pre­hen­sive hori­zons for the Sino-Arab re­la­tions of strate­gic co­op­er­a­tion. The Chi­nese pres­i­dent ex­plained in the speech, read on his be­half by Chi­nese For­eign Min­is­ter Wang Yi at the open­ing ses­sion of the 7th China-Arab States Co­op­er­a­tion Fo­rum in Doha, that the Sino-Arab part­ner­ship ini­tia­tive found a pos­i­tive re­sponse from Arab states, con­firm­ing that he sensed en­thu­si­asm from the Arab side for par­tic­i­pa­tion in build­ing the belt and the road.

Dur­ing the fo­rum China held an ex­hi­bi­tion to in­tro­duce prod­ucts tied to high-speed rail­ways, nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems and nu­clear power.
