BEIJING: In rare comments on the unrest in Kashmir that could cause unease in India, China on Monday hoped that the situation there will be "handled properly" and "relevant parties" will address the issue peacefully through dialogue.
"China has taken note of relevant reports. We are equally concerned about the casualties in the clash, and hope that relevant incident will be handled properly," Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said in his remarks posted on the foreign ministry website.
"The Kashmir issue is left over from history. China holds a consistent stance and hopes relevant parties will address the issue peacefully through dialogue," he said in response to a question on the recent Kashmir unrest.
Lu's comments come as a surprise to observers here as it is rare for China to comment on the developments relating to Jammu and Kashmir.
China''s concern might be due to its worry that this time INDIA might take stern action to even claim PoK&that might put China in a bind
Do you think China is Afraid of India?
yes, they are as they know India can destroy Porkistan and china can do nothing and if china interven then other countries will join India
Why China''s asss is burning? It would be nice; if China could shut his mouth up rather interfering India''s internal affairs!!
China has to be more than just "concerned" - things have changed in India.
If you think that from the 1962 defeat, India is stronger now, so is China
India lacked the attitude in 1962 maybe; today is different.
What ?? Nothing has changed.. only that China has become much stronger multiple fold economically and militarily, much more stronger than Hindus-tan;
who the hell u to poke your nose in our internal matter.Its non of your business. Better to concentrate on Tibet
USA should use stronger language to condemn killings in Kashmir. Modi would take notice of that.
China is a joke - anybody who has Pakistan as its "all weather friend" is a joke.
If the Chinesse are really so concerned stop supporting PAKISTAN
China'' reaction is in the wake of India''s comment against SCS and China want to fuel the fire in J&K to control India so that, it does not drift towards US/Japan.
