China says CPEC has 'no direct link' with Kashmir issue

Beijing: China today sought to allay India's concerns over the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, saying it has "no direct link" with the Kashmir issue and New Delhi was welcome to participate in the 'One Belt One Road' project.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, at press conference on the One belt One Road (OBOR) summit to be held here from May 14-15, said, "Although (an) Indian leader will not be here but India will have a representative" at the OBOR summit.

"We welcome (the) Indian representative, members of the Indian business community and financial community to take part in the discussions at the summit," Wang said.

28 Presidents and Prime Ministers were expected to take part in the summit, he said.

"OBOR is for common development of all participants. So we welcome India to take active part in building the OBOR," he said.

Wang asserted that the purpose of the USD 46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor was economic.

"It is for the purpose of serving economic cooperation and development," he said.

"It has no direct link with political and boundary dispute. Certain sections of the CPEC have raised concern on the Indian side," Wang said.

These disputes are not the direct result of the economic corridor and economic activities.
