India’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not immediately respond to phone calls and messages requesting comment.
China is seriously concerned about the current situation in Kashmir, Hua Chunying added.

India and China have long had border disputes in Ladakh, which was made a federally administered region along with the move to remove the special status to Kashmir in parliament on Monday.
