The neighboring countries of India are behaving like the typical Indian neighbors. One is always on fight mode, and the second is showing itself as some diplomatic messiah. The first neighbor, of course, is none other than Pakistan. While the second is China.
China, today, said that it played a major role in releasing tensions between India and Pakistan. It, however, didn’t say a single word about the increasing terror activities in Pakistan.
A press conference was called in Beijing on the sidelines of the second session of the 13th National People's Conference. According to a report by Chinese state media, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that China wants to see improved relations between the two countries. The minister didn’t mention anything about the terror attack done in Pulwama in which 40 Indian soldiers were killed by the Pakistani terror group Jaish-E-Mohammed.
It looks like China is trying to present itself as some peace-loving mediator to the international media. However, the fact is known to everyone that China has thwarted many attempts by India to list Masood Azhar at the UN Security Council as a UN-designated global terrorist. Azhar is the chief of Jaish-E-Mohammed, the same group which attacked the CRPF in Pulwama.
China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in its statement, “The Chinese side maintains that the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries should be earnestly respected and is unwilling to see acts that violate the norms governing international relations.”
As far as the Indian side is concerned, it doesn’t look like China has anything to do with "played a constructive role" in the "mediation efforts" between the two countries. Yeah, if talk about stabbing India in its back, China has quite a good experience in it.
With that said, here are some other lines were thrown by Chines Foreign Ministry. Make sure you take it with a pinch of salt.
"The Chinese side calls on Pakistan and India to refrain from taking actions that aggravate the situation, show goodwill and flexibility, launch dialogue as soon as possible, and work together to maintain regional peace and stability. The Chinese side is ready to continue to play a constructive role in this regard.”
