India on Thursday strongly rejected remarks on Jammu and Kashmir by a spokesperson of China’s permanent mission to the United Nations, asserting that the UT “has been, is and shall continue” to be its integral part.
A spokesperson for the MEA Anurag Srivastava said India expects China to refrain from commenting on the country’s internal affairs and respect its sovereignty.
He said India also expects China to recognise and condemn cross-border terrorism that affects the lives of the people of India, including in J&K.
The spokesperson of China’s permanent mission in the UN said the Kashmir issue remained high on the UNSC’s agenda.(Agencies)
