India’s new nightmares: CPEC and AJK?

Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat on Thursday said that the Indian Army is all set to free Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) from Pakistan clutches and make it an integral part of India along with Indian Occupied Kashmir. However, decisions like these come under the jurisdiction of Central Government.

The irony is that these comments shortly came after Chinese Foreign Minister canceled his visit to India and decided to come to Pakistan, amid escalating tensions between Islamabad and New Delhi. While expressing his views regarding the situation of Kashmir, Wang Yi said

The Kashmir issue is a dispute left from history, China said it opposed any unilateral actions that complicated the situation in the Indian Held Kashmir (IHK). Beijing was paying close attention to the current situation in the IHK and emphasised that the issue should be properly and peacefully resolved based on the UN Charter, relevant UN Security Council resolutions and bilateral agreements.

Both sides also agreed to the fact that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, as a pioneering project of the Belt and Road Initiative, has entered a new phase of high-quality development. The two sides agreed to continue to firmly push forward the construction of CPEC, complete its on-going projects in a timely manner, and realize its full potential by focusing on socio-economic development, job creation, and better livelihood and accelerating cooperation in industrial parks and agriculture.

While news of Widespread allegations of torture and abuse of detainees by Indian security forces are now pouring in through the international media, many experts also believe that India is purposely releasing such kind of statements in order to withdraw peoples’ attention from the pressure that is being exerted by Pakistan on all the International forums to ease the lockdown in IoK.
