Pakistan tells China of ‘deteriorating situation’ in Indian Kashmir

By: Paige Hubbard 

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi told his Chinese counterpart on Tuesday (March 19) of the “rapidly deteriorating situation” and rights violations in Indian Kashmir. It was said that Qureshi called for India to look again at their policies.

Speaking in Beijing standing alongside the Chinese government’s top diplomat, State Councillor Wang Yi, Qureshi said there was a need for a new assessment on how the situation on the Indian side of Kashmir should be handled by the Indians.

It was also said that there were voices within India questioning the efficacy of the policy followed for the last years.

Wang, who is also China’s foreign minister, said China has always believed that peace and stability in South Asia is in the joint interests of countries in the region and is what the international community wishes.

India launched an air strike on a militant camp inside Pakistan last month following an attack on an Indian paramilitary convoy in disputed Kashmir.

The February 14 attack that killed at least 40 paramilitary police was the deadliest in Kashmir’s 30-year-long insurgency, escalating tension between the neighbors, and the subsequent air strike had heightened fears that nuclear-armed India and Pakistan could slide into a fourth war.
