Press statement by BJP National Spokesperson & MP, Shri Tarun Vijay regarding presence of Chinese PLA solders in PoK on LoC

Wednesday, 06 April 2011

The presence of a large number of Chinese PLA members disguised as 'construction workers' in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir on our LoC is a matter of serious concern to us. It's a threat to our security and we must get a clarification from the Chinese about the real intention of their involvement in an area that belongs to India and is under illegal occupation of Pakistan. Even Chinese do not accept Pakistan's claim on it and show the PoK area out of Pakistan in their maps. India has been furnishing proofs to Pakistan about the terrorist training camps in POK and the presence of Chinese soldiers in that area raises questions about what connection are they having with the terrorist camps.
It also needs to be clarified from the Chinese whether the analyses of some China observers is true that the Chinese presence in PoK can be a long term part of their plan to connect the Karakoram highway with Gwadar. If that happens it would be for the first time that the China mainland will be directly linked with Gwadar port, thus fulfilling a dream of China security establishment to have safe passage up to the Arabian sea. It's noteworthy that Gwadar port was built with the Chinese help and inaugurated by the Chinese PM in 2005. Gwadar has also come to be known as the naval outpost for the Chinese.
These are matters of grave security concern to India and while Indian Prime Minister is going to attend the BRICS summit in China next week we would urge him to take up these matters also with the Chinese PM and get clarification.
