Killed by Indian troops amid rising Kashmir tensions


However, India dismissed the Chinese spokesperson's reference to the Kashmir issue unequivocally.

While referring towards Chinese offer, Mirwaiz said when there is worldwide pressure and outrage over the "suppression" and a third country offers mediation to resolve the "dispute" India quickly rejects it saying they will resolve it bilaterally with Pakistan.

The Hurriyat chairman said it is unfortunate that the Government of India is continuously refusing to accept the ground reality in Kashmir and engage with it not only as a political problem but as a humanitarian issue of more than ten million people.

Indian army chief has said the occupied forces will not need any additional troop deployment to secure the route of Amranath Yatra, a two-month long annual pilgrimage, in held Kashmir.

"We have been ready to have dialogues with Pakistan in a bilateral framework".

Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said this at his weekly press briefing here on Thursday, adding that India was deliberately escalating tension at the LoC. In his meeting here with Sardar Masood Khan, President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Dr. Gottlob said that IOK was being treated like a colony. "The conflict between the two countries along the line of control in Kashmir is neither conducive to their own stability and development nor regional peace and tranquillity".

The Chinese foreign ministry on Wednesday offered to play a "constructive role" in improving India-Pakistan ties over Kashmir where the "situation has attracted the attention of the global community". For starters, Beijing should inspire confidence by reorienting its South Asia strategy, which, at present, looks highly tilted towards Pakistan.

Baglay also hit out at the Pakistan government for "reading" from Lashkar-e-Taiba's terror script in glorifying Hizbul militant Burhan Wani, who was killed by security forces in July a year ago. "We have seen the report that they said Kashmir is central to peace and stability in the region".

China has alleged that the Indian troops are on its soil, but both Bhutan and India say the area in question is Bhutanese territory.
