Kumar's statement was in reference to a Chinese media report that said Chinese President Xi Jinping was watching the situation in Kashmir and would lend support to Pakistan in its core internal matters.
Ministry of External Affairs official spokesperson Raveesh Kumar reiterated India’s position that Pakistan had invaded and illegally occupied parts of Jammu and Kashmir, and the current developments in Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh are purely its internal matter.
MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said this while responding to a question on the call for a march, to protest India's move, from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) to the Line of Control (LoC), which has been backed by Pakistan's military.
In his address to the UN General Assembly last week, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad remarked that India has "invaded and occupied" Jammu and Kashmir and that it must solve the issue with Pakistan through dialogue.
Hitting out at an article in foreign media on the situation in Kashmir after abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir's special status, MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said it is an attempt to project the situation in one police station area in Srinagar as representative of the region.
