China has slammed India for unilaterally changing the status of occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
At a news briefing in Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said India unilaterally changes its domestic law and administrative divisions, challenging China’s sovereignty and interests.
He said this is awful and void, and this is not effective in any way and will not change the fact that the area is under China’s actual control.”
The spokesman said Kashmir is a dispute left from history that should be peacefully resolved.
China is locked in a decades-old dispute with India over the part of Kashmir called Ladakh.
