India on Thursday rejected references to Jammu and Kashmir in a China-Pakistan joint statement during Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s visit to Beijing.

External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said the references were “unwarranted” and India consistently rejected such statements.

The Union territories of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh are and will always remain an integral and inalienable part of India, he said.

On China-Pakistan-Economic Corridor (CPEC), Bagchi said India consistently conveyed “protests and concerns” to China and Pakistan as it includes projects in the “sovereign territory” of India.
