New Delhi, May 24
India today strongly objected to China's plan to establish a rail link connecting Gwadar in Pakistan with China's Xinjiang region via Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). "We have serious reservations about this proposal," Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai told reporters here.
He said New Delhi had made known to Beijing its opposition to any cooperation between China and Pakistan involving the disputed area of the PoK.
China and Pakistan signed an accord for the proposed rail link during Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's visit to Islamabad.
India has been quite concerned over the increasing China-Pakistan cooperation, especially on projects involving the PoK. However, Ignoring New Delhi's concern, China has indicated it would go ahead with building infrastructure in PoK as part of its cooperation with Pakistan, its 'all-weather friend'.
