China will not involve in territorial dispute between Pakistan - India: Ambassador Luo
Chinese Ambassador to India Luo made the remarks at the United Service Institution, an Indian defence think tank, on Friday, but the text of his closed door address was released by the Chinese Embassy on Monday.
Referring to Pakistan and India ties, he said that China was willing to mediate to resolve differences between the two countries if both the sides accepted it.
He said that good relations between Pakistan and India were conducive to regional stability and in China’s interests.
The development of China, Pakistan, India and the stability of the region call for a stable and friendly environment, he said. “We are willing to mediate when Pakistan and India have problems. But the precondition is that both Pakistan and India accept it,” he said.
“We do this only out of goodwill. We do hope that there is no problem at all,” he also said.
On the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), Ambassador Luo said that China had no intention to get involved in the ‘sovereignty and territorial disputes’ between Pakistan and India. “China supports solution of the disputes through bilateral negotiations,” he said.
