New Delhi, Oct 14: After the bitter battle over the ownership of Arunachal Pradesh with China, India has asked the communist nation to stop all the activities in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) taking 'long-term view' of Indo-Sino relations.
"We have seen the Xinhua report quoting the President of China Hu Jintao as stating that China will continue to engage in projects with Pakistan inside Pakistan occupied Kashmir," Vishnu Prakash said in a statement in response to a question on Pakistan- China projects in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).
Arguing that Pakistan has been in illegal occupation of parts of the Indian State of Jammu & Kashmir since 1947, he added that China is fully aware of India's position and its concerns about Chinese activities in PoK.
This comes after the Chinese president, Hu Jintao outlined a major project to upgrade the Karakoram highway in a meeting with the Pakistan Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani on Tuesday, Oct 13.
"The people of China and Pakistan are always joined in hearts and hands," Hu remarked in the meet.
Also on the same day, India and China were warring over the state of Arunachal Pradesh after China expressed 'strong' dissatisfaction over Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit to the state.
