"China has once again showed strong commitment to promoting cultural dialogues and diversity through its Belt and Road Initiative, said Irina Bokova, Director-General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) here on Wednesday.

In an interview with Chinese media, Bokova described the Belt and Road Initiative, proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2013, as a 'fascinating project', stressing that the UN agency commends and supports this initiative.
