India-Pakistan relations are bilateral in nature, no scope for involvement of third country:



India-Pakistan relations are bilateral in nature, no scope for involvement of third country: MEA tells China

New Delhi: India on Monday said that matters related to India-Pakistan relations are purely bilateral in nature and there is no scope for an involvement of any third country. India's reaction came after Chinese envoy Luo Zhaohui endorsed a trilateral cooperation among India, China and Pakistan.
Batting for a trilateral cooperation between India, China and Pakistan under the aegis of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, Luo had said that it could "in the future" help resolve bilateral issues between New Delhi and Islamabad and help maintain peace.
In response to queries on the comments made by the Chinese ambassador to India, Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said that India had not received any such suggestion from the Chinese government. "We have seen reports on comments made by the Chinese Ambassador in this matter. We have not received any such suggestion from the Chinese government. We consider the statement as the personal opinion of the ambassador. Matters related to India-Pakistan relations are purely bilateral in nature and have no scope for an involvement of any third country," he said,
Delivering a keynote address on 'Beyond Wuhan - How far and fast can China-India relations go' at an event organised by the Chinese embassy, Luo had said earlier on Monday that "some Indian friends" had suggested a trilateral summit comprising India, China and Pakistan, which was a "very constructive" idea. Leaders of China, Russia and Mongolia hold a similar meet, he had noted. "This is a proposal suggested by some Indian friends and it is a very a good and constructive idea. Maybe not now, but in the future, that is a great idea," Luo had said.
Dwelling on Sino-Indian ties, he had said it was quite natural to have differences but they need to be controlled and managed through cooperation. "We need to control, manage, narrow differences through expanding cooperation. The boundary question was left over by history. We need to find a mutually acceptable solution through Special Representatives' Meeting while adopting confidence-building measures," he said. "We cannot stand another Doklam (sic)," the envoy had added.(updated on June 18th, 2018)
