CHINA Advises Pak To Resolve Kashmir Issue Bilaterally: Pak Is Now Terroristan, Says India


AS China, Pakistan’s the most trustworthy ally, declared on Friday that Kashmir issue should be resolved bilaterally by India and Pakistan dismissing the advisory by The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation for the implementation of the UN Resolution on the dispute, India in the 193-Member United Nations called its western neighbour “Terroristan” for patronising terrorism. Spokesman for Chinese External Affairs Ministry in Beijing has gone on record saying that The Kashmir issue should be resolved between India and Pakistan after he was asked for reaction to the OIC’s suggestion. Yes, “China has noted the relevant report. China’s position on the Kashmir issue is clear-cut,” the Spokesman added.

“The Kashmir issue is left over from history. China hopes India and Pakistan can increase dialogue and communication and properly handle relevant issues and jointly safeguard regional peace and stability,” he was quoted by media as saying.India the same day in New York was in a combating mood at the 72nd General Assembly Session of the UN calling the Islamist nation “Terroristan”.Excersing the right to reply, young diplomat Ms  Eenam Gambhir Pakistan has become geography synonymous with terror. The quest for a land of the pure has actually produced ‘the land of pure terror’. Pakistan turned into “Terroristan,” she said. She was rebutting Pakistan Prime Minister Shahi Khaqan Abbasi’s accusation that India was depriving Kashmiris of their democratic rights by brute force. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj addressed the five-nation BRICS Ministerial meeting on the sidelines of the UNGA and stressed the need for collective efforts to “disrupt terrorist networks including their financing and movement.” Such a measure is urgently needed for early conclusion and adoption of the CCIT (Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism) in the UN, Swaraj added .She said “Terror groups continue to draw sustenance from support systems, including those based in South Asia. They continue to find support and shelter in countries using terrorism as an instrument of state policy. Countering terrorism must not be a matter of political convenience,” she said. The BRICS meet attended by her Chinese counterpart Wang Yi among others in its joint release said “The Ministers reiterated their strong condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. They urged concerted efforts to counter terrorism on a firm international legal basis, under the UN auspices, and expressed their conviction that a comprehensive approach was necessary to ensure effective fight against terrorism.”But unlike the joint statement issued after the recent BRICS summit meet in Xiamen, the New York statement has not mentioned any terror groups like “Taliban, ISIL/DAISH, Al-Qaida and its affiliates, including Eastern Turkistan Islamic Movement, Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, the Haqqani network, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad, TTP and Hizb ut-Tahrir”.India’s tone on terror was much measured though at the extraordinary meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation. With the foreign minister of Pakistan, the new full member alongside India, in the room, Sushma welcomed the SCO Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure. She said, “There can be no justification whatsoever for any acts of terrorism. We are determined to consistently strengthen cooperation within the SCO framework and to work together to seek comprehensive, cooperative, and sustainable security.” However, the Indian EAM and her Pakistan counterpart exchanged pleasantries when they came across face to face in the UNGA.  China has meanwhile stopped oil supply to North Korea, another rouge State like Pakistan, and its ally. But the multi- billion dollar question remains up to what extent Beijing can go to tame the two nations whom China cannot ignore for further its geo-political interests.
