 August 23, 2018: China said on Wednesday it is willing to play a "positive and constructive role" in easing relations between India and Pakistan as it welcomed the "positive" remarks of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his new Pakistani counterpart Imran khan on improving bilateral ties. 

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said the improvement and development of relations between India and Pakistan are important to regional peace, stability and prosperity.

“We have noted relevant reports and we welcome the positive remarks made by the Indian and Pakistani leaders on improving bilateral relations,” Lu said while replying to a question on the statements made by the two leaders soon after Khan assumed office as Pakistan’s 22nd prime minister on August 18.

“Both Pakistan and India are important countries in South Asia. As a common neighbour to Pakistan and India, China firmly supports the two sides to enhance dialogue increase mutual trust, properly handle and solve their differences,” Lu said, according to the official transcript of the briefing issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

China hopes the two countries can jointly stay committed to regional peace and development, he said. “China is willing to play a constructive role in this aspect,” he said.

Asked what he meant by China playing a constructive role, the spokesman said, “We are very pleased to see that the leaders of Pakistan and India have recently made positive remarks on improving bilateral relations.”

On August 20, Prime Minister Modi had sent a letter to Khan, conveying that India was looking for constructive and meaningful engagement with Pakistan.

Khan in a tweet yesterday expressed Pakistan’s willingness to re-start the stalled India-Pakistan peace process and said the two countries must engage in dialogue to resolve their differences, including on the Kashmir issue, and start trade.
