China’s position on Kashmir issue clear, consistent: Geng Shuang
BEIJING: China has repeated that its position on the Kashmir issue is clear and consistent that it should be properly resolved through negotiations by the relevant parties.
Talking to a news agency, spokesperson of Chinese Foreign Ministry Geng Shuang said the approval of the listing of Masood Azhar has nothing to do with the Kashmir issue and would not affect China’s position on the longstanding dispute.
He said Pakistan has made enormous contributions in fighting terrorism, which deserves a full recognition from the international community.
The spokesperson further said China will continue its firm support to Pakistan’s efforts to combat terrorism and extremist forces.
The UN Security Council (UNSC) 1267 Committee listed Maulana Masood Azhar on Wednesday. This entails a ban on foreign travel, asset freeze and arms embargo.
