India on Tuesday firmly rejected a reference to Jammu and Kashmir in a statement put out by China and Pakistan over the weekend that had described the Kashmir issue as a dispute left from history.
“We reject the reference to Jammu & Kashmir in the joint statement issued by China and Pakistan after the recent visit of Chinese Foreign Minister. J&K is an integral part of India,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said on Tuesday.
New Delhi also told the two countries to stop work on the China Pakistan Economic Corridor that passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
India has consistently expressed concerns to both China and Pakistan on the projects in so-called ‘China Pakistan Economic Corridor’, which is in the territory of India that has been illegally occupied by Pakistan since 1947.
