‘China may not be interested in taking sides on Kashmir’

Beijing: China is “unlikely” to give up on the USD 46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor being built through PaK despite India’s protests, but it may not be interested in taking sides in the Kashmir dispute due to close economic ties with both nations, state-run media said on Tuesday.
“It is regrettable to see CPEC become another unharmonious factor in Sino-India ties, but China is unlikely to give up on the idea of CPEC because of India’s protest,” an article in Global Times said.
“In fact, the economic corridor, linking northwest China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region to Gwadar Port in southwestern Pakistan, does not target any third party, India included. Given that China has developed close economic ties with both India and Pakistan in recent years, Beijing is unlikely to be interested in taking a side between the two countries,” it said.
