According to the National Interest, Wang believes that China's economic bridging project "shares common cooperative opportunities" with Doha's future development roadmap launched in 2008. Because of this, Qatar plays a vital role in the success of the New Silk Road that would connect China to Central Asia, Europe and Africa.
Wang's remarks came during a meeting with Emir H Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, Qatar's head of state, prior to the ministerial conference of the China-Arab States Cooperation Forum (CASCF). He also confirmed speculations that China is eyeing better relations with Qatar because of its rich resources.
