China says it favours direct Indo-Pak talks
Beijing, Nov 22: China has conveyed to India that it has no intention of playing a mediator in India-Pakistan relation and favours direct talks between them.

According to Indian governemnt sources, Beijing has communicated to New Delhi that it respects its stance that there was no role for any third party in mediation of Indo-Pak affairs.

"China has said there is no change in its position that Indo-Pak relations are bilateral in nature," said the source accompanying Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on his way to Washington.

India was annoyed when a Sino-US joint statement, issued after talks between President Barack Obama and President Hu Jintao in Beijing last week, made a mention of Indo-Pak relations.
