Kashmir issue: China asks Pakistan and India to resolve disputes through dialogue and consultation

New Delhi, Aug 10 (IBNS): In the wake of the recent escalation of tension in the relationship between India and Pakistan following the developments in Kashmir, the Chinese government on Friday asked both the neighboring nations to resolve disputes through dialogue and consultation.

"China noted the relevant statement by Pakistan. The pressing priority is that the relevant party should stop unilaterally changing the status quo and avoid escalation of tensions," Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying said in a statement.

"We call on Pakistan and India to resolve disputes through dialogue and consultation and jointly uphold regional peace and stability," Hua Chunying said.

Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi visited China recently and met country's counterpart Wang Yi.

"Foreign Minister Wang Yi has acknowledged that India’s aggressive stance on Kashmir leaves the people of Kashmir vulnerable and voiceless while also putting the entire region at risk," Qureshi tweeted.

"China supports Pakistan’s repeated calls for peace and stability and we will work together to highlight the voice of Kashmiris to the world," he said.

Modi's Kashmir googly:

Indian Parliament in a bold decision passed the Jammu & Kashmir Reorganisation Bill, 2019 which bifurcated the terror-hit northern state into two Union Territories - J&K, a Union Territory with Legislative Assembly, and Ladakh, a UT without Legislative Assembly.

The Modi government  scrapped Article 35 A and Article 370 which were used to give Jammu and Kashmir a special status.

Article 35A of the Indian Constitution allowed the Jammu and Kashmir state's legislature to define “permanent residents” of the state and also provided special rights and privileges to those permanent residents.

Article 370 allowed Jammu and Kashmir to have its own constitution, flag and right to handle its own laws except on matters that impact national security.
