BEIJING: China has categorically stated the Kashmir issue is a dispute from colonial history and it should be resolved peacefully under the UN Security Council resolutions.
Chinese State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi during his interaction with Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi in Beijing expressed serious concern over the situation arising from India’s actions by India in occupied Kashmir.
The issue should be resolved peacefully based on the UN Charter, relevant UN Security Council resolutions and bilateral agreement, he said.
The two foreign ministers agreed that both sides would closely coordinate and consult each other on the evolving developments.
Qureshi during his talks with his Chinese counterpart during his recent trip highlighted the illegal Indian actions and stressed that no unilateral step could change the internationally recognised disputed nature of occupied Kashmir, according to the official statement issued by the Foreign Office.
Qureshi highlighted that as part of its reckless approach there could be some false flag operation and Pakistan blamed on the fake pretext of “terrorism”.
He stressed that the disputed nature of occupied Kashmir was enshrined in the UNSC resolutions, which envisaged the framework for a final settlement of occupied Kashmir dispute based on a free and fair plebiscite under the auspices of the United Nations.
