Right of Reply by India in response to statement made by Pakistan under Agenda Item 8 at the 39th session of Human Rights Council, delivered by Ms. Mini Devi Kumam, First Secretary [Geneva, 24 September 2018]

Mr. Vice President,

India would also like to bring to the attention of the Council a matter of concern regarding the reference made by Pakistan under this Agenda. India shares international community’s desire for enhancing physical connectivity and believes that it should bring greater economic benefits to all in an equitable and balanced manner. Regarding the so-called ‘China-Pakistan Economic Corridor’, which is being projected as the flagship project of the Belt and Road Initiative, the international community is well aware of India’s position. No country can accept a project that ignores its core concerns on sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Thank you, Mr. Vice President.
