Finally, China Talks Kashmir

In a surprising move, China on Monday asked India and Pakistan to seek a solution to the Kashmir issue through peaceful and friendly consultations and offered to play a constructive role in resolving the Kashmir issue.

Agencies quoting Hu Zhengyue, Chinese Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs, in charge of the Asian region saying: “As a friendly country, China would also be happy to see progress in the peace process between India and Pakistan.” 

Kashmir, he said, is an issue that has been longstanding left from history. “This issue touches the bilateral relations between the relevant countries," he said.
