Macron Urges Europe to Take Part in China’s Massive ‘Silk Road’ Infrastructure Project

French President Emmanuel Macron urged Europe Monday to take part in China’s massive Silk Road infrastructure project but warned against “hegemony”, saying both sides should share the benefits, The Daily Mail reports.

Macron, on the first day of a state visit, also called on Europe and China to team up on curbing climate change in the face of the US decision to withdraw from the Paris accord.

“Our destinies are linked,” he said in a keynote speech on the future of Sino-French relations during a visit to the northern city of Xian, the starting point of the ancient Silk Road.

“The future needs France, Europe and China,” Macron said.
