China has opposed”any unilateral actions” in Kashmir which”complicate the scenario”, backing its all-weather ally Pakistan against the background of its tensions with India on the revocation of J&K’s particular standing.
China had compared India’s activities in Kashmir, also flocked to the creation of a new Union Territory containing Ladakh.
Shortly after India revoked J&K’s unique status on August 5, China issued a statement that said New Delhi and Islamabad should prevent activities that”unilaterally alter the status quo” of the area. The Indian government has stated the changes are only an internal issue.
A joint release issued by China and Pakistan early Monday following the finish of Wang’s trip said the two sides exchanged views on the situation in J&K and included:”China opposes any unilateral action that complicate the circumstance.”
The side briefed the Chinese to its own”concerns, standing and pressing humanitarian problems”, the release stated. The Chinese side reacted by stating that it had been”paying careful attention” to the problem in Kashmir and reiterated the Kashmir problem”is a dare left from background” and should be”correctly and peacefully solved according to the UN Charter, applicable UNSC resolutions, and also bilateral arrangements”.
There was no immediate reply to the joint announcement from Indian officials. “We’ve said the modifications in Kashmir are an internal thing… The external affairs minister has said the new UT of Ladakh has no consequences for India’s external borders or the LAC,” stated an official requesting anonymity.
