Frustrated India raises hue and cry over Pakistan China CPEC yet again

NEW YORK - Frustrated India over rising Pakistan China Economic strategic partnership raises hue and cry over CPEC mega project yet again.

India has asked China to stop changing the status quo of Kashmir by building the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) after Beijing raked up the Kashmir issue at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York.

The Ministry of External Affairs said, "We expect that other countries will respect India's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and desist from efforts to change the status quo through the illegal so-called China-Pakistan Economic Corridor in Pakistan Kashmir"

China is building the mammoth infrastructure project CPEC that will give connectivity to western China with the Arabian sea and passes through the entire Pakistan and Pakistan Kashmir.

Reminding China that "Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh are an integral part of India", MEA said, "Recent developments are entirely a matter internal to us."

The Foreign Minister of China, Wang Yi from the green podium at UNGA said that New Delhi through its "unilateral" action by removing special status to Jammu and Kashmir is changing the "status quo" in the region.

Wang Yi said, "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."
