CHINESE Foreign Minister Wang Yi has started a week-long tour of Poland, Slovakia and Hungary aimed at winning support for China’s Belt and Road initiative,

reports the South China Morning Post.


Mr Wang’s visit to Eastern Europe will include the second plenary session of the China-Poland Intergovernmental Cooperation Committee and the second China-Hungary Belt

and Road working group meetings, said to China’s Foreign Ministry.


Zhao Junjie, a China-EU relations analyst from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, a think tank affiliated with China’s State Council, said Mr Wang’s trip could help

strengthen China’s relations in Europe, as Eastern European nations sometimes felt neglected by major European countries such as Germany.
