India rejects Chinese Minister's remarks on Jammu and Kashmir, says 'entirely internal affair'

| @indiablooms | 24 Mar 2022, 12:36 am

New Delhi/IBNS: India on Wednesday reiterated that Jammu and Kashmir is an internal matter as it rejected the "uncalled reference" to the same by the Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi during his speech at a function in Pakistan.

"Matters related to the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir are entirely the internal affairs of India. Other countries including China have no locus standi to comment. They should note that India refrains from public judgement of their internal issues," MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi told reporters in response to queries on the Chinese Foreign Minister's speech.

This comes after Wang had made a reference to Kashmir in his opening speech at the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in Pakistan.

"On Kashmir, we have heard again today the calls of many of our Islamic friends. And China shares the same hope," he had said.

New Delhi's rejection of Wang Yi's comments also came amidst consultations between the two sides over a possible visit by him to New Delhi within two days.

China has time and again reiterated its support to the stand of Pakistan, its strategic ally on the matter of Jammu and Kashmir.
