It also sought to play down the reported cancellation of Chinese-funded dam and hydropower projects by Pakistan and Nepal, respectively.
A report in an Indian newspaper cited India's Foreign Affairs Ministry's study that due to Beijing's "unacceptable conditions", its trillion-dollar Belt and Road programme was "facing a push back" from Islamabad and Kathmandu that have pulled the plug on Chinese-funded projects.
In 2018, Islamabad slashed the budget for a major railway project under the Beijing-funded China-Pakistan Economic Project (CPEC), citing its inability to repay the Chinese loans.
China has spent over $60 billion in Pakistan under the CPEC, the lynchpin to its Belt and Road.
"All the projects are the outcome of equal negotiation and difficulties encountered by certain projects do not change the fact that the Belt and Road cooperation has played a positive role in promoting economic development," Hua said.
"And we also follow the market principles and established international rules... we will never impose our will on others and there are no so-called unacceptable conditions."
It plans to spend about a trillion dollar in over 65 countries under the project, which many, including India, see as Beijing's geostrategic design. However, China says the project is purely economic in nature.
