Italy becomes first G7 nation to join China’s BRI

Despite a warning by United States, Italy on Saturday joined China's signature foreign policy Belt and Road initiative (BRI), making it the first G7 country to officially do so reports Xinhua. Addressing a press conference, Italian president Sergio Mattarella said, "Italy and China were at the two ends of the ancient Silk Road which had been a bond closely linking the two countries. Italy supports Xi's initiative on jointly building the Belt and Road and believes that it will be conducive to Eurasian connectivity and common development, as well as to reviving the ancient Silk Road in modern times."
