BEIJING (Web Desk): In a bid to ease tensions between the two countries (Pakistan and India) after New Delhi move to end the special constitutional status of occupied Kashmir, Indian Minister for External Affairs Jaishankar reached China on a three-day visit on Sunday.
Beijing has sharply criticized India’s decision, saying it undermined China s territorial sovereignty.
Ahead of the visit, India called China an important partner. Raveesh Kumar, spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, said, “China is a very important partner. There are many channels available for us to discuss all bilateral issues”.
On Tuesday, China said that it has always opposed to India‘s inclusion of the Chinese territory in the western sector of the China-India boundary into its administrative jurisdiction. This firm and consistent position remains unchanged.
