Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said on Tuesday 10/7/2018 that Egypt and the other Arab countries are willing to cooperate with China for implementing the Belt and Road Initiative.
In his speech at the 8th session of the ministerial meeting of the Sino-Arab Cooperation Forum, he added that Arab-Chinese relations have remarkably advanced since 2004.
Also, China has always been supporting national liberation movements in Arab countries, he added.
Furthering economic relations between both sides is very important for joint cooperation as China ranks second on the Arab World's list of trade partners, he pointed out.
Also, the Arab countries are the major oil exporter to China, he said, adding that the Belt and Road Initiative will help increase trade exchange between both sides.
