3:36 pm
pakistan spotted intentions of occasionally it also have the potential to drag another major stakeholder into the crisis together that india and pakistan control about it to percent of the region they drive new border you see the region of jungle in kashmir but the remaining 20 percent here in the balt and in the north east is actually under the control of china india 2 names these 2 regions but this past week a bold the indian and pakistani foreign ministers have been in beijing the chinese government to make clear that it's not happy with india's actions. well there are some differences between our 2 countries we don't shy away from those differences we exchanged views on those matters in a kind it manner regarding the recent tensions between india and pakistan we made clear china's concerns on the issues that regarding involving china's sovereignty
3:37 pm
and rise in interest we also stated china's principled position and let's talk about this small way it has sharma in the shop who joins me now sherman good to see you how much does the indian government's decision to revoke the shmita special status affect china. well the ratio china is seriously concerned about the move not as much as prime minister mo these this is a decision to scrap the special status but do bifurcate the state and it has started only disputes with india and the like dock region is now in the middle of all this so beijing believes that the decision good to be permanent and permanent be a factor this started during this border between india and china so china is
3:38 pm
concerned definitely but i think the indian foreign minister when he was arrested. china he actually is trying to to convince chinese authorities that there shouldn't be any what about it speaking of they've been foreign ministers counterpart in pakistan shah mahmood qureshi no he claimed. complete support on the. mean does it. i do not think so i don't think that pakistan has china's complete support you see that china has large investments in india and obviously chinese authorities would not like to do ruin the trade relations with india india is a huge market and also china is pretty all combined with other issues at the moment and i believe that on this to know these dining to announce this decision was
3:39 pm
pretty good china is involved in hong kong china has an ongoing trade conflict with the us so china is pretty preoccupied in other things and. i have serious doubts that beijing vid will go all the way to help pakistan out and the situation in some of today's also pakistan's independence day and by mr khan as expressed on the data to me. is on the indian side. have these latest tensions with india unified the polity in pakistan itself. no not at all and it has not unified it it's a pretty chaotic situation domestically in pakistan you see just days off to. this decision on kashmir. the pakistani government arrested former prime minister nawaz sharif's don't muddy i'm not. the joint parliamentary session in pakistan.
3:40 pm
