Beijing: China on Wednesday sent vice-foreign minister Kong Xuanyou to Islamabad to discuss the tension in India-Pakistan ties following the Pulwama terror attack and the subsequent air strikes by both the countries.
“He (Kong) is now visiting Pakistan. He is in communication with Pakistan on the India-Pakistan situation,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Lu Kang was quoted by media during a briefing on Wednesday.
This is an exceptional instance on the part of China to discuss Indo-Pak tension.
On February 14, a JeM terrorist had rammed a car laden with explosives into a bus leading to the death of over 40 CRPF personnel.
India later conducted air strikes inside Pakistan at Balakot on JeM establishments which later led Pakistan Air Force to retaliate last week.
