Unilateral change to status quo in IOJK region illegal: Chinese Foreign Ministry



BEIJING:   Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin has said that any unilateral change to the status quo in the occupied Kashmir region by Indian government is illegal and invalid.
During news briefing, the spokesman said that China closely follows the situation in the Kashmir region. Our position on the Kashmir matter is consistent and clear, he clarified.
Wenbin said that the Kashmir issue is a dispute left over from history between Pakistan and India, which is an objective fact established by the United Nations Charter, relevant Security Council resolutions and bilateral agreements between the arch rivals.

The Kashmir region issue should be properly and peacefully resolved through dialogue and consultation between the parties concerned, he suggested.
