Continental Vision: Eurasia according to China
Since the 19th century, geographers and other specialists have discussed the idea that Europe and Asia are not separate continents but actually joined together geographically to form a single continent of Eurasia. How is the idea of Eurasia viewed in China? Does the Belt and Road Initiative increase Chinese influence on the continent, and how does it affect the interests of the other Eurasian powers?
