Islamabad / Beijing: China has given a strong shock to Pakistan PM Imran Khan, who reached Beijing with propaganda agenda on Kashmir. Taking a U-turn from its stand, China has considered Kashmir as a bilateral issue of India-Pakistan. At the same time, both countries have been advised to resolve this by mutual negotiations. The Chinese Foreign Ministry has given this shocking statement before President Xi Jinping's visit to India.
On Tuesday, China's foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said, "China has called on India and Pakistan to strengthen mutual dialogue and strengthen dialogue on disputes, including Kashmir, to improve relations." This is in accordance with the common interests of both India and Pakistan and is expected of the countries and the international community.
Let me tell you that before this America also publicly told Imran Khan that this is an issue between the two countries. Solve it through dialogue by looking at both.
Please tell that Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan reached Beijing on Tuesday as part of his third official visit to China. He held talks on regional and bilateral issues with Chinese President Xi Jinping and his counterpart Li Qiang here.
