India’s Kashmir map move will escalate tensions with China: Report
ISLAMABAD - India’s Kashmir map move will escalate tensions with China, Chinese State Media Report has claimed.
A research fellow at the Shanghai Institute for International Studies Zhao Gancheng says revoking Indian Occupied Kashmir’s status undermines peace and tranquility in region.
According to a Chinese newspaper Global Times, he said this will harm interests of India’s neighbors and also infringe on interests of Indian people.
Meanwhile, an expert on South Asia at China Institute of International Studies Lan Jianxue said India’s deliberate decision of formation of ‘Union Territory of Laddakh’ will expand China-India territorial rows, create fresh frictions and complicate their border disputes.
