More than 2,000 years ago, the Silk Road that traversed Asia and Europe was the link connecting the East and the West for business and humanities. The ancient Silk Road has important implications for the exchanges and mutual learning between Eastern and Western civilizations.
Today, the great power game, the crisis in Ukraine, the chaos in the Middle East... Eurasia, the land that carries the memory of important civilizations of mankind, is regarded as the center of global geopolitics and economic competition.
In this regard, China News Agency "Ask East and West China Dialogue" invited Xing Guangcheng, member of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and director of the China Frontier Research Institute; Silin started the conversation.
Experts said that the ancient Silk Road witnessed the exchanges of civilizations at different stages of human development.
It enlightens the world today: civilizations need to be open and learn from each other, not closed and decoupled; they need equality and respect, not self-importance.
At present, the United States and other countries frequently "lay mines" and "add obstacles" in the geopolitics of Asia and Europe. The strategic intention to hinder the interconnection between Asia and Europe is obvious, and behind it is the narrow "theory of superiority of civilization".
