Representatives from Turkish NGOs and the Peace and Disarmament Association of the People’s Republic of China discussed the Silk Road project and possibilities for China and Turkey to cooperate further in a number of fields.
“We are very happy to discuss the Silk Road project, which was born in 2013, with our Turkish friends. Turkey has pioneered the ‘win-win’ principle that is based on peaceful development between China and the surrounding region,” said Ma Biabo, the head of the Chinese board, which visited Turkey upon the invitation by Turkey’s Marmara Group Foundation. He added that China and Turkey should have a “long-term perspective to develop their relations and respect” for each other.
