Dr. Elizabeth Sushko’s Keynote Speech
"One Belt and One Road Initiative: Challenges and International Legal Aspects”
Part 1:

Dr. Elizabeth Sushko has predsented the scope of the OBOR and cited the Keynote Speech of the Chinese President Xi Jinping, delivered by him earlier in 2017 at the opening ceremony of the Belt and Road Forum (BRF) for International Cooperation in Beijing: “Work Together to Build the Silk Road Economic Belt and The 21st Century Maritime Silk Road”.
In his Keynote Speech, Chinese President Xi Jinping paid attention to the core principles of the realization of the Silk Road:
1. Peace and cooperation.
“In China's Han Dynasty around 140 B.C., Zhang Qian, a royal emissary, left Chang'an, capital of the Han Dynasty. He traveled westward on a mission of peace and opened an overland route linking the East and the West, a daring undertaking which came to be known as Zhang Qian's journey to the Western regions. Centuries later, in the years of Tang, Song and Yuan Dynasties, such silk routes, both over land and at sea, boomed. Great adventurers, including Du Huan of China, Marco Polo of Italy and ibn Batutah of Morocco, left their footprints along these ancient routes. In the early 15th century, Zheng He, the famous Chinese navigator in the Ming Dynasty, made seven voyages to the Western Seas, a feat which still is remembered today.   These pioneers won their place in history not as conquerors with warships, guns or swords. Rather, they are remembered as friendly emissaries leading camel caravans and sailing treasure-loaded ships. Generation after generation, the silk routes travelers have built a bridge for peace and East-West cooperation”. May 14, 2017. (Xinhua/Wang Ye) BEIJING
2. Openness and inclusiveness.
The ancient silk routes spanned the valleys of the Nile, the Tigris and Euphrates, the Indus and Ganges and the Yellow and Yangtze Rivers. They connected the birthplaces of the Egyptian, Babylonian, Indian and Chinese civilizations as well as the lands of Buddhism, Christianity and Islam and homes of people of different nationalities and races. These routes enabled people of various civilizations, religions and races to interact with and embrace each other with open mind. In the course of exchange, they fostered a spirit of mutual respect and were engaged in a common endeavor to pursue prosperity….   This part of history shows that civilization thrives with openness and nations prosper through exchange.    May 14, 2017. (Xinhua/Wang Ye) BEIJING
3. Mutual learning.
“The ancient silk routes were not for trade only, they boosted flow of knowledge as well. Through these routes, Chinese silk, porcelain, .. and ironware were shipped to the West, while pepper, flax, spices, grape and pomegranate entered China.   ... More importantly, the exchange of goods and know-how spurred new ideas”. May 14, 2017. (Xinhua/Wang Ye) BEIJING
4. Mutual benefit. 
“The ancient silk routes witnessed the bustling scenes of visits and trade over land and ships calling at ports. Along these major arteries of interaction, capital, technology and people flowed freely, and goods, resources and benefits were widely shared”.  May 14, 2017. (Xinhua/Wang Ye) BEIJING
