    EU is skeptical? give me a break. Chancellor Angela Merkel visited China 11th times as of mid 2018. Germany is china biggest trading partner with EU. Italy made it possible for other EU members to follow.Remember AIIB? Once UK signed on, all other EU members followed.

    @Alessandro Olivieri it sounds like there are sellouts involved in this, I know Italy will have a riot over this soon.

    Visiting China for selling exports and actually sign agreements for the Chinese initiative are two different things.

    @Net Surfer just look how unsuccessful Japan and South Korea and Canada and Australia are and look at the great Chinese ally North Korea and how great an economic powerhouse that country is....

    @Blanc Owl No moron.I am saying China should invest and then form a repayment plan when the nation cannot pay it back as quickly.Instead,China demands ports and land.Not even the so called evil IMF does that shit.

    Phillip Habsburg so u’re suggesting china invest in other countries for free ? Can u even call that investment if it’s for free ? If u’re not sure u can pay it, then don’t sign the contract. As simple as pie...

    @kiDkiDkiD12 , SE Asian males are Han Chinese males, ydna haplogroup O-M175 and subclades. Koreans Chinese...Koreans call Korea..HAN-Guk. Don't try to reason with them. All the males in Asia, Africa and Europe are your enemies. ALL of them. Probably 30-50% of Americans are your enemies. They looted the wealth created by free America farmers to enrich themselves and gain wealth. Israeli false Jews, Catholics and Buddhists chaining devils and demons and having them labor so the others can play.
