India concerned over China's activities in Azad Kashmir

New Delhi: India has expressed reservations over Chinese activities in Azad Kashmir, Dispatch News Desk (DND) reported.

Indian Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai said India is unconcerned over developments in other countries but where it involves Kashmir, the government had conveyed its concerns to Beijing. “Our views have been passed on to China. We have serious reservations about Chinese activities in (Azad Kashmir),” he told reporters on Friday.

Mathai’s response came a day after Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said Beijing would go ahead with its plan to build infrastructure in Azad Kashmir despite India’s reservations, having signed a memorandum of understanding with Islamabad on a transport corridor expected to pass through Pakistan’s Gilgit-Baltistan region. China has called for an economic corridor to link the country’s far-western Xinjiang region to Pakistan’s strategic Gwadar port on the Arabian Sea, which China helped build and is now managing.
