Sri Lanka, which attended One Belt One Road conference in Beijing has backed India’s concern over the Kashmir issue.
Sarath Amanugama, Sri Lanka’s Minister on Special Assignment said, it is difficult for New Delhi to accept the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as it goes through the heart of Indian interests.
The Minister said, if it would have been some uncontested region, India would have negotiated its way out.
India skipped the meeting due to its sovereignty concerns over the 50 billion dollars CPEC, which goes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
The two-day conference in Beijing brought together leaders from 29 countries.
