China on June 12 said it was ready to play a "constructive role" in improving India-Pakistan ties over Kashmir, where the "situation has attracted the attention of the international community".
 
Beijing, which said conflict along the Line of Control (LoC) was not conducive to the South Asia region, however, did not say anything on Monday's terror attack on Hindu pilgrims doing the Amaranth Yatra in Kashmir.
 
"Situation in Kashmir has attracted a lot of attention (of the) international community," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said here.
 
"The conflict near the Line of Control (LoC) of Kashmir will not only harm the peace and stability of both the countries but also the peace and tranquility of the region," he added.
 
"China is willing to play a constructive role in improving relations between India and Pakistan."
 
"We hope that relevant sides can do more things that are conducive to peace and stability in the region and avoid escalating the tensions."
 
China has publicly maintained neutrality over the Kashmir issue and talked about its "constructive role" earlier too.
 
However, the state-run media and Chinese think tank experts have suggested that Beijing could help its ally Pakistan in disputes with India over Kashmir. This week a Chinese expert said the way India was helping Bhutan in Doklam, China too can help Pakistan by sending its army in Kashmir.
 
Indian and Chinese troops have been engaged in a stand-off in Doklam at the India-Bhutan-China trijunction which has led to rise in tensions between both sides.
