China ready to mediate between Pakistan, India

Posted July 15, 2017

Opposition leaders were on Friday briefed by the government on the stand-off with China and the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

"There is too much of tension and that should be lowered through diplomacy".

"We are ready to talk Kashmir with Pakistan, but no third party mediation", Baglay said. Sources said the meeting was part of the government's initiative to get the Opposition on board and evolve a broad consensus on these critical issues. The Congress leader accused the Centre of pursuing what he described as "short term political gains" from the PDP-BJP alliance in the state.

The two neighbours, which fought a war over the border in 1962, have a festering dispute along several areas of their 4,000km border.
