UNITED NATIONS — China, raising the Kashmir issue at the UN, has told the General Assembly that the “dispute” should be peacefully and properly addressed in accordance with the UN Charter, Security Council resolutions and the bilateral agreement.

With a clear reference the government of India’s move to abrogate Article 370 which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir, China stressed that no actions should be taken that would unilaterally change the “status quo”.

“The Kashmir issue, a dispute left from the past, should be peacefully and properly addressed in accordance with the UN Charter, Security Council resolutions and bilateral agreement,” State Councilor and Foreign Minister of China Wang Yi said in his address to the UN General Assembly on Friday, reports PTI.

“No actions that would unilaterally change the status quo should be taken. As a neighbour of both India and Pakistan, China hopes to see the dispute effectively managed and stability restored to the relationship between the two sides,” Mr. Wang said.

On August 5, India has ended Jammu and Kashmir’s special status by abrogating certain provisions of Article 370 of its Constitution.

India’s move evoked strong reactions from Pakistan, which downgraded diplomatic ties and expelled the Indian ambassador.
