FM to take up stapled visa issue with China
New Delhi, Apr 3: India’s concerns on a host of issues, including issuance of stapled visas and “illegal” construction in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, (PaK) would be taken up by the External Affairs Minister S M Krishna during his meetings with Chinese leadership when he visits that country from Monday.
Briefing the reporters ahead of the minister’s 4-day visit, External Affairs Ministry spokesman Vishnu Prakash today said the entire gamut of bilateral issues would be taken up, including the boundary issue, “illegal” construction by Chinese companies in PaK and China issuing stapled visas to residents of Jammu and Kashmir.
India has been maintaining that any construction in PaK by China was “illegal”. This has been conveyed to China at every level as it was a matter of “core concern” to the country, said Joint Secretary (East Asia) in the ministry Gautam Bambawale.
