India asks China to halt construction in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir

Jammu: The Army said on Friday that China has been asked to stop its reported construction activities in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

"Regarding construction activities in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), the government has seen such reports and has conveyed its concerns to China about their activities and asked them to cease such activities," a spokesperson for the Army`s Udhampur-based Northern Command said in a statement.

The statement further said a decline has been reported in Chinese incursions into the Indian territory.

"There have been no instances of incursions by Chinese troops into Indian territory (of late)."

The spokesperson, however, added that there is no commonly delineated Line of Actual Control (LAC) between India and China.

"There are areas along the border including in Ladakh where India and China have differing perceptions of LAC. Due to both sides undertaking patrolling up to their perception of the LAC, transgressions do occur.

India has registered its protest against the $46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor that runs through a part of PoK.
