NEW DELHI: India has suspended defence exchanges with China after Beijing refused a visa to an army general from the Indian occupied Kashmir (Iok), government sources and local media said on Friday.New Delhi would give little details on the issue, only saying that the visit by the general to China did not take place.
“While we value our exchanges with China, there must be sensitivity to each others’ concerns. Our dialogue with China on these issues is ongoing,” India’s foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement.
Last year, India protested against a Chinese embassy policy of issuing different visas to residents of Indian Kashmir, one of a series of low-level disputes between the Asian giants.
