    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.

    infrastructure is good. drone bombing is bad.
    port is good. military base is bad.
