BEIJING - Chinese President Xi Jinping on Sunday stressed Indonesia's special connection with the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, calling on the two countries to strengthen cooperation under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative. "I proposed the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road for the first time when I delivered a speech in Indonesia in October 2013. The alignment of the proposal with Indonesia's Global Maritime Fulcrum has enriched bilateral ties," Xi said when meeting with Indonesian President Joko Widodo. Widodo is in Beijing for the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation on Sunday and Monday. Xi urged China and Indonesia to maintain high-level exchanges to further promote their comprehensive strategic partnership and consolidate political mutual trust. Both sides should work to deepen pragmatic cooperation, promote infrastructure projects and ensure balanced growth of bilateral trade, he said. He identified investment, finance, mining, agriculture and nuclear energy sectors as areas for further cooperation between China and Indonesia, in addition to counter-terrorism, drug control, cyber security and combating transnational crime. The two countries should also carry out maritime dialogue and cooperation, promote exchanges in tourism, education and cultural sectors, and step up communication and coordination in multilateral organizations, Xi said. He reaffirmed China's support for the building of the ASEAN community, adding that China is willing to work with ASEAN countries to seek greater progress in China-ASEAN ties and cooperation in East Asia. For his part, Widodo said Indonesia believes the Belt and Road Initiative will bring about more cooperation opportunities for Indonesia and China. Indonesia is willing to work with China under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative, to upgrade bilateral trade and investment, he said. It will also discuss with China the building of an economic connectivity corridor, and work to deepen cultural and people-to-people exchanges between the two countries. Indonesia will maintain close communication and coordination with China in international and region affairs and support steady progress in China-ASEAN ties, he added. A series of cooperation documents was signed after the meeting. woven wristbands

An underwater glider developed by Chinese scientists has set records for the country, working continuously for the longest time and completing the longest journey in a single mission. Haiyi1000, developed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Shenyang Institute of Automation, was recently plucked out of the South China Sea after completing its underwater mission to collect ocean data on a journey of 1,884 kilometers over 91 days. The new endurance mark doubled past Chinese gliders and makes China the only country besides the United States with the ability to conduct ocean monitoring and surveillance lasting more than three months in a single mission, according to a report by China Central Television on Sunday. The successful mission of Haiyi1000 suggests that China can create a new-generation network for monitoring the ocean's environment, the report said. The glider was launched in the northeastern South China Sea by a scientific research vessel on July 14. After completing missions with 11 other gliders, it alone remained in the water to provide researchers with a real-world endurance test. During the 91 days, the glider successfully coped with treacherous conditions brought by five typhoons, proving its reliability and stability, the report said. Yu Jiancheng, a researcher at the institute, which is in Shenyang, Liaoning province, told CCTV that underwater gliders differ from traditional underwater robots in that they do not have propellers. Instead, they are equipped with devices that function similar to an air bladder in some species of fish, which helps them rise or sink and enables them to move forward with less energy consumption. Another underwater glider, Haiyi, also developed by the Shenyang Institute, reached a depth of 6,329 meters in March, breaking the previous record of 6,003 meters held by a US device, the CAS said in March. With its ability to reach 6,000 meters, Haiyi allows Chinese scientists to explore 97 percent of the maritime space, the science academy said. wangxiaodong@chinadaily.com.cn
