China hopes Indian and Pakistan will continue their peaceful negotiations and strive to revolve the disputes between them, including the Kashmir issue, by peaceful and political means, Chinese Foreign Minister Tang Jiaxuan said Wednesday.
China will continue to play a unique constructive role in this regard, Tang said at a press conference of the current session of the National People's Congress.
What the South Asian Subcontinent needs most is peace, stability and development, he said.
He stressed that both Pakistan and India are good neighbors of China, and developing China-India and China-Pakistan relations can run parallel without conflict.
