India-China standoff LIVE: Chinese aggression increasing, standoff likely to be prolonged

By oneindia staff

New Delhi, Aug 06: India on Wednesday asked Beijing to keep out of the internal affairs of other countries after China contended that India's "unilateral" changes to the status of the former state of Jammu and Kashmir were illegal and invalid.


As the Pakistan government observed Yaum-e-Istehsal or a "day of exploitation" to protest India's decision last year to scrap Jammu and Kashmir's special status and split it into two union territories, Beijing had also called on the Indian government and Islamabad to resolve the dispute over Kashmir through dialogue and consultations.
