The ministry said in its statement, “We have noticed that China started discussions in the UN Security Council on matters related to India’s union territory Jammu and Kashmir.” It says, “This is not the first time that China has tried to raise a subject which is entirely India’s internal matter.” This effort did not get much support from the international community as before. ”
The Foreign Ministry said, “We strongly reject China’s interference in our internal affairs and urge him to learn appropriately from such fruitless efforts.” The latest attempt by China to internationalize the Kashmir issue has come at a time when there is a bitter dispute between the two countries over the border issue in eastern Ladakh.
On 5 August last year, India abolished the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and divided it into two union territories. China has been critical of India’s decision to reorganize Jammu and Kashmir, especially making Ladakh a union territory. China claims some area of Ladakh. Only after this decision of India, China tried several times to raise the Kashmir issue in the UN Security Council, but it was rejected by the Security Council member countries.
