Xi Jinping pledges to 'fight corruption' at Belt and Road summit

Chinese President Xi Jinping welcomed 37 heads of state and representatives of more than 100 countries to the second international conference on the "Belt and Road" project. China's leader has defended the infrastructure scheme against accusations that it is a so-called "debt trap" for countries receiving Chinese investment. China has dismissed much of the criticism, often coming from the US and Europe, as Western resistance to China's rise.
