Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Wednesday he was watching the situation in Kashmir and would support Pakistan in issues related to its core interests, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

Tensions over Kashmir have risen sharply since August when New Delhi revoked its special status.  Xi is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Chennai later this week.
