India is likely to keep its participation limited in China’s One Belt One Road summit starting from tomorrow (Sunday), The Indian Express reported.

Signalling displeasure over China-Pakistan Economic Corridor’s route, New Delhi has decided on not sending a high-level representative to attend the two-day summit.

Sources revealed that there was a possibility that India might send a junior diplomat to witness the summit proceedings.

There was no official announcement by India’s Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) regarding New Delhi’s participation in the summit. Sources said that a decision has not been taken yet.

The May 14-15 summit is set to be attended by 29 heads of state and governments, including one of India’s strategic partners — Russian President Vladimir Putin. Most of India’s neighbours are attending the One Belt One Road (OBOR) summit, which is Chinese President Xi Jinping’s pet project.

    Srilanka’s hambantota port development is a classic example of luring a less privileged country to an eternal debt trap by China.Srilanka is in a debt trap of 8 billion dollars to china,and this port is hardly generating any revenue.Recommend
