On previous occasions too, China has attempted to raise Jammu and Kashmir in the UNSC, but every time Beijing has met with rejection and failure

India on Thursday hit out at China for its attempt to again raise the Kashmir issue in the United Nations Security Council, stating “it firmly rejects China’s interference in our internal affairs.”

“We have noted that China initiated a discussion in the UN Security Council on issues pertaining to the Indian Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement.

“This was not the first time that China has sought to raise a subject that is solely an internal matter of India. As on such previous occasions, this attempt too met with little support from the international community,” the MEA added.

It further asked China “to draw proper conclusions from such infructuous attempts.”
