The Chinese representative in Unit Nations Security Council briefing media regarding security council meeting said that Kashmir is a disputed territory and India created tension after revoking article 370. In his briefing representative of a permanent member of the security council, China said that the members of the security council have expressed grave concerns over the deteriorating situation of the Kashmir.
“India’s move to make amendment in its constitution aimed to end Kashmir’s special status has intensified the tension in the region,” he mentioned. He urged Pakistan and Indian should find the peaceful solution of the Kashmir as neighbouring countries.
“The Security Council has just held an informal consultation and listened very carefully to the briefings and reports from the secretariat including the briefing from the military observer group on the ground that helped us understand the situation better. The Secretary-General also issued a statement a few days ago,” said Zhang.
“Members have expressed that there are serious concerns concerning the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. They are also concerned about the human rights situation there and it is the general view of the members that parties concerned should refrain from taking any unilateral action which might further aggravate tensions.”
“China holds the view that the issue of Jammu Kashmir is an issue left from history between India and Pakistan. According to UNSC resolutions, the status of Kashmir is undecided and it is an internationally recognized dispute. The Kashmir issue should be resolved properly through peaceful means in accordance with the UN charter, the relevant SC resolutions and bilateral agreements. This represents the international community’s consensus,” said China’s ambassador to the UN.
“It is obvious that the constitutional amendment by India has changed the status quo in Kashmir, causing tension in the region. China is deeply concerned about the current situation and opposes any unilateral action that complicates the situation,” he added.
