China expressed concern over the Jammu and Kashmir Uri terror attack


BEIJING: China today voiced worry over the "acceleration" of brutality and "rising temperatures" in Jammu and Kashmir after the Uri fear assault and approached India and Pakistan to determine their disparities through discourse and improve counter-psychological warfare participation.

Expressing shock over yesterday's terror attack on an army camp in Uri, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said, "We want to express our deep sympathies and condolences to the affected families and the injured.

"We have noted relevant reports. We are shocked by this attack," Mr Kang told a media briefing in Beijing when asked about Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad's involvement in the attack.

"China opposes and strongly condemns all forms of terrorism. We are concerned about this escalation," he said. "We hope relevant parties will have dialogue and consultation to resolve their differences and enhance counter terrorism cooperation. Only this way can they safeguard peace and security in their region," he said.

Asked how China sees the impact of the escalation of violence on its USD 46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, Mr Kang said, "The building of the corridor is to drive the development of the regional countries. It needs the concerted efforts of all countries concerned to ensure the smooth running of this corridor."

"Our position is that we hope all relevant parties can work together and remain committed to resolving disputes through peaceful consultations and jointly maintain the peace and stability of the region. This in final analysis is conducive and will bring benefits to China, India Pakistan and all the regional countries," he said.
