    China-Pak 'boundary agreement' illegal: India

    NEW DELHI: India has been raising with China the issue of Pakistan's "illegal" cession of part of territory occupied in Kashmir under China-Pakistan
    "boundary agreement", Lok Sabha was told on Wednesday.

    "Government's position is that this so-called 'boundary agreement' (between China and Pakistan) is illegal and invalid. This has been reiterated to the Chinese side in the on-going discussions on the boundary question," minister of state for external affairs Preneet Kaur said while replying to a question.

    She said under "the so-called China-Pakistan 'boundary agreement' of 1963, Pakistan illegally ceded 5,180 kms of Indian territory in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir to China."

    The minister added that Pakistan was in "illegal and forcible occupation of approx. 78,000 sq. kms of Indian territory in Jammu and Kashmir since 1948 while 38,000 sq kms was under the occupation of China".

    Why blame them! Blame them, who did not seize it back even after winning the war.
