No review of India’s stand on China-Pak Corridor: Sitharaman

India does not view its relations with China through the prism of China-Pakistan ties, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said today, but ruled out the possibility of New Delhi reviewing its stand on CPEC project, a major irritant in Sino-Indian relationship.

She also said New Delhi is alert to the economic assistance provided by China to India’s neighbours and ramifications it could have for the country.

“One thing I want to assure here…We do not view our relations with China through the prism of China-Pakistan relations,” the Minister told an event to mark the 10th anniversary of ‘Chennai Centre for China Studies’ here.

Sitharaman brought up the issue of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), and made it clear that India will not “entertain any thought” of reviewing its stand on it, as it concerned its sovereignty.
