BEIJING, July 18 (Xinhua) -- President Xi Jinping said Tuesday that China stands ready to work with Palestine on Belt and Road construction.

China will support capable and qualified companies to carry out investment cooperation in Palestine for mutual benefits and win-win results, Xi said as he held talks with his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas at the Great Hall of the People.

The Belt and Road Initiative, proposed by President Xi in 2013, refers to the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. It aims to build a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa, along and beyond the ancient trade routes.
