China strong supporter of Kashmiris’ birth right: APHC

Srinagar, March 15, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference terming the former puppet Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s statement regarding China as immature and meaningless has said that Beijing is a strong supporter of the Kashmiris’ right to self-determination. The APHC spokesman, Ayaz Akbar, in response to Omar Abdullah’s tweet on China’s presence in Pakistan and Azad Kashmir, in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “China is not an occupier like India.”

Unlike India, he added, China has not attacked or forcibly occupied the territory. He said that China’s presence was a part of cooperation between Islamabad and Beijing under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Project and the pro-freedom people had no reason to oppose this move.

Meanwhile, the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Lu Kong at a media briefing in Beijing reiterated China’s stand on the Kashmir dispute. “We believe that the relevant issue was left over by history between India and Pakistan. We maintain that the two countries should properly resolve it through negotiations and consultations,” media reports quoting the spokesman as having said.
