BEIJING - China has again expressed concerned over the current situation in Occupied Kashmir and escalating conflict between India and Pakistan.

The concern was expressed by China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi during a meeting with his Indian counterpart Subrahmanyam Jaishankar in Beijing, who is on a three-day visit to China, the Radio Pakistan reported.

Wang Yi said the current situation in Kashmir has escalated tension between India and Pakistan and China opposes any unilateral action that complicate the situation.
