China again urges Pakistan, India to show restraint, seek dialogue

BEIJING: China called on Pakistan and India on Wednesday to “exercise restraint” and seek dialogue after the Pakistani military said it shot down two Indian warplanes in its airspace amid rising border tensions.

“What we are concerned about is that India and Pakistan, as important countries of the South Asian subcontinent, can maintain good neighbourly and friendly relations,” foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said at a regular press briefing.

“We hope that both India and Pakistan can exercise restraint, take initiatives that are conducive to promoting dialogue, meet halfway and make active efforts for lasting peace and stability in South Asia,” Lu said. (Agencies)
