Venezuela Says It Is Ideal Partner for China’s New Silk Road Project

BEIJING – Venezuela said it would be an ideal partner for China’s so-called New Silk Road project during meetings between its deputy foreign minister and officials from the ruling Chinese Communist Party.

Felix Plasencia discussed bilateral relations with China’s Assistant Foreign Minister Qin Gang and CCP international department head Shen Beili during meetings Wednesday, according to a statement by the Venezuelan foreign ministry sent to EFE.

Plasencia said China’s ambitious Belt and Road initiative was “a splendid proposal” that would be successful and have significant global impact.

He claimed that relations between Caracas and Beijing offered many opportunities within the project, in which China will fund infrastructure across the world, including in Latin America.

Plasencia and Housing Minister Manuel Quevedo led the Venezuelan delegation at the recent Belt and Road Forum in Beijing, attended by leaders from 29 countries.

Senior Chinese officials told Plasencia that Beijing would continue to offer support to Venezuela, the statement added.

Venezuela is currently reeling from political instability and economic difficulties, which have prompted thousands of people taking to the streets in protest against the government.
