India Takes Strong Exception To Reference Of J&K In Pakistan-China Joint Statement
India objected to the reference made to Jammu & Kashmir in a China-Pakistan joint statement issued after Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's visit to Islamabad.
External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar also talked about the China-Pakistan economic corridor in Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir, asserting that India is "resolutely opposed" to any actions by other countries to change the status quo in the region.
"We reject the reference to Jammu & Kashmir in the joint statement issued by China and Pakistan after the recent visit of the Chinese foreign minister. Jammu & Kashmir is an integral part of India," he said, responding to a question on the issue.
"On the other hand, India has consistently expressed concerns to both China and Pakistan on the projects in so-called 'China-Pakistan Economic Corridor', which is in the territory of India that has been illegally occupied by Pakistan since 1947," he said.
Kumar said the parties concerned should cease such actions.
