China continues to occupy large tract of area in Ladakh and J&K: MEA

China continues to occupy large tract of area in Ladakh and J&K: MEA

New Delhi, Oct 31 (UNI) India on Thursday said China continues to be in occupation of "a large tract of area"
in the Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.
MEA spokesman Raveesh Kumar said, "It (China) has also illegally acquired Indian territories from
Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) under the so-called China-Pakistan Boundary Agreement of 1963".
He further said, "India has consistently conveyed its concerns to both China and Pakistan on the projects in
so-called China-Pakistan Economic Corridor which is in the territory that has been illegally occupied by
Pakistan since 1947".
Insofar as the boundary question is concerned, the MEA spokesman said, "India and China have agreed to seek a fair, reasonable and mutually accepted solution to the issue through peaceful consultations on the basis of the political parameters and guiding principles that were agreed in 2005".
This, he said, was also reiterated in the 2nd India-China Informal Summit between Prime Minister Modi
and President Xi Jinping in Chennai earlier this month.
"In the interim, the two sides have also agreed to maintain peace and tranquility in the border area," he said.
Answering a question, he said: "We have seen the statement made by the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China on the establishment of the Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh".
He maintained that in this context, China is "well aware of India’s consistent and clear position" on the issue.
"The matter of reorganization of the erstwhile State of Jammu & Kashmir into the Union Territories of Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh is entirely an internal affair of India," he said.
