China’s statements marking strong aid to Pakistan issue in the backdrop of intensified pressure among India-Pak after the Pulwama terror attack. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi Tuesday promised to support Pakistan’s sovereign freedom and territorial honour stating its responsibility will continue despite changes in the foreign landscape.
Wang said, “No matter how things change in the world and in the region, China will firmly support Pakistan in upholding its sovereign independence and territorial integrity and dignity,” in Beijing at the first-ever China-Pakistan Foreign Minister-level diplomatic discussion. Wang was with his Pakistan counterpart, Shah Mahmood Qureshi.
The Foreign Ministers’ conference was held less than a week later China set a technical grasp on the program to list Jaish chief Masood Azhar being a global terrorist in the UN Security Council 1267 committee for the fourth time. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj raised the recent Pulwama suicide attack in her critical bilateral meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi a day later India defeated a major Jaish-e-Muhammed (JeM) terror training.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said, “I also briefed the Foreign Minister (Wang) on the rapidly deteriorating situation on the Indian side of Kashmir, intensification of human rights violations, especially after Pulwama,” he said. “Pakistan appreciates the role that China has played, once again, in standing by Pakistan in these difficult times.” Qureshi added, “This is a concern because that leads to a reaction, and that reaction at times creates tensions in the region that must be avoided. I think there is a need for a new assessment on how the situation on the Indian side of Kashmir should be handled by the Indians.”Share this to your,
