Belt and Road Initiative to Connect 3 Continents

KABUL - Second Vice President Sarwar Danish says Afghanistan and China will become a connecting point for Europe, Africa and Asia through the Belt and Road Intuitive (BRI).
Danish is currently on a state visit to China, leading a high-level delegation. Danish visited the Communist Party secretary for Gansu province Lin Duo on Monday, the VP’s office said.
On be behalf the Chinese Communist Party, Lin Duo hoped Danish’s trip would play a crucial role in terms of improved bilateral cooperation and relationship.
Afghanistan and China, enjoying close relations, had been connected for the past 2000 years through the Silk Road, Duo added. Afghanistan could play an important role in terms of China’s security, he believed.
“Afghanistan is a neighbor of China and it needs assistance, the Chinese government has developed a policy for continued aid to Afghanistan,” he said.
Danish commended China's ancient civilisation, political stability and strong leadership. The second largest economic power in the world, China was distinguished country, he said.
The two countries could connect three continents though the BRI, he said. Bamyan has a total of eight sites, including the Buddha statues, and seven others, already registered as world heritage by UNESCO.
Similarly, Bamyan's sister province Gansu has seven historical sites registered by UNESCO. However, the heritage in Afghanistan faces preservation challenges. (Pajhwok)
