Russia has backed China’s Silk Belt and Road initiative, vice-premier Igor Shuvalov said at the Asian economic forum.

      Earlier, China unveiled on Saturday the principles, framework, and cooperation priorities and mechanisms in its Silk Belt and Road initiative in a bid to enhance regional connectivity and embrace a brighter future together, according to Xinhua.

      “The vision and action on jointly building the Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road, an initiative raised by Chinese President Xi Jinping during visits to Central Asia and Southeast Asia in 2013, was issued by China's top economic planner, the National Development and Reform Commission and the ministries of foreign affairs and commerce,” said

      The initiative aims to promote orderly and free flow of economic factors, highly efficient allocation of resources and deep integration of markets by enhancing connectivity of Asian, European and African continents and their adjacent seas.

      It is open to all countries and international and regional organisations for engagement and honours mutual respect and market operation to seek common prosperity, the plan said.

      "The programmes of development will be open and inclusive, not exclusive. They will be a real chorus comprising all countries along the routes, not a solo for China itself," Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Saturday while addressing the opening ceremony of the 2015 annual conference of the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) in the coastal town of China's southernmost island province of Hainan.

      The initiative is not meant as rhetoric. It represents real work that could be seen and felt to bring real benefits to countries in the region, Xi added.

      The plan called for policy coordination, facilities connectivity, unimpeded trade, financial integration and people-to-people bonds to make complementary use of participating countries' unique resource advantages through multilateral mechanisms and multilevel platforms.
