Cross-border terrorism threatening regional peace: India

Friday, July 14, 2017

New Delhi: India today asserted that cross- border terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir was at the "heart" of the matter that was threatening regional peace and snubbed China for its offer to mediate to resolve the Kashmir issue, insisting it was a bilateral matter between it and Pakistan.

India's strong reaction came a day after the Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson said China was willing to play a "constructive role" in improving Indo-Pak ties, especially after the increased hostility along the Line of Control (LoC). He also said the situation in Kashmir has attracted "international" attention.

"At the heart of the matter is really the issue of cross- border terrorism perpetrated on India including on the people of the state of J&K. So, the matter is that cross-border terrorism in our region emanating from a particular source is threatening peace and stability in not only India but other neighbours," External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Gopal Baglay told reporters.

As far as the Kashmir issue itself is concerned, the government's position has been very consistent and clear, he asserted.

"We have been ready to have dialogue with Pakistan among other issues (including) J&K in a bilateral framework. That position of addressing all issues with Pakistan including the Kashmir issue in a bilateral framework has not changed,"  Baglay said.
