China defends projects in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir
Beijing : China on Thursday defended its projects in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, which Prime Minister Narendra Modi had strongly objected to during his visit to that country last month. Straight away rejecting clarifications of LAC, China said it prefers a pact with India on a code of conduct to maintain peace along the border.
• China has defended its investments in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir
• PM Modi had strongly objected to these projects during his visit to China
• China also refused any clarification on LAC
• Huang Xilian proposed an agreement on the code of conduct to clarify mutual positions on the LAC
• "If we find that the clarification of the LAC is a building block, then we should go ahead. But if we find that it is a stumbling block, it could complicate the situation further. We have to be careful," said Mr Huang.
• A week ago External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had also communicated objections to China over the economic corridor through PoK.
