Raveesh Kumar, MEA spokesperson

New Delhi: China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has violated India's sovereignty and territorial integrity, said the Ministry of External Affairs on Thursday. Raveesh Kumar, MEA official spokesperson, responded to a query on media reports regarding possible cooperation with Beijing on BRI. And in a statement, he said that the ministry has noticed in some media reports that there might be a possibility of cooperation on BRI. 

He said, "We have seen some media reports alluding to our possible cooperation with China in 'One Belt One Road' (OBOR)/'Belt and Road Initiative' (BRI)." Kumar added that India's position on OBOR/BRI is clear and there is no change. "The so-called 'China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)' violates India's sovereignty and territorial integrity. No country can accept a project that ignores its core concerns" on the same.  

He stated that New Delhi is of a firm belief that connectivity initiatives must be based on universally recognised international norms, good governance, rule of law, openness, transparency and equality, and must be pursued in a manner that respects the sovereignty and territorial integrity.  

As per media reports, China, in the past few years, has pushed India for its inclusion for greater cooperation in the BRI project. It had said that if New Delhi cooperates in the massive economic project it would benefit the country's economies in the long run.  

  

The Belt and Road Initiative is focused on building trade and infrastructural connectivity between Asia with European and African countries along with trade routes of Silk Road, which will help in tourism and investments.  

CPEC, the most ambitious project of Beijing, is criticised by New Delhi as it passes through Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) region. But, China has said that it had not violated any territorial laws and that it was an "internal matter" between India and Pakistan
