India rejected China and Pakistan’s stance on Kashmir issue on Tuesday after both the countries on September 9 called India for a dialogue and opposed India’s actions.
On the other hand, India criticised the “China-Pakistan Economic Corridor”. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said in a statement, “We reject the reference to Jammu and Kashmir in the Joint Statement issued by China and Pakistan.”
Earlier, Chinese Foreign minister visited Pakistan over tension in Kashmir.
The MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar added, “J&K is an integral part of India. On the other hand, India has consistently expressed concerns to both China and Pakistan on the projects in the so-called ‘China Pakistan Economic Corridor’ which had been illegally in Pakistan’s possession since 1947.”
Kumar also said, “India is resolutely opposed to any actions by other countries to change the status quo in Pakistan occupied J&K. We call on the parties concerned to cease such actions.”
