China on Tuesday advised Pakistan and India to resolve ongoing tensions through mutual dialogue and cooperation and try to curb violations on the border, to ensure their commitment to peace in the region. 
“As a neighbour and friend of India and Pakistan, China calls on the two countries to exercise restraint, manage the situation through dialogue and consultation, properly deal with relevant differences and stay committed to the peace and stability of South Asia,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.
“China follows closely the development of the situation,” she added.
The advice comes ahead of the military parade to be held in Beijing on September 3 to commemorate World War II, which will be attended by representatives from both countries; President Mamnoon Hussain from Pakistan and India’s minister of state for fefence V K Singh.
President Hussain is expected to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping as the nation observes the 70th anniversary of China’s war of resistance against Japan. Singh also plans to meet the Chinese president the day after the parade.
The president hopes to brief Beijing about recent ceasefire violations at the Pak-India border. With representatives of both countries offering firsthand accounts of the issues crippling the peace process, Beijing will have a better opportunity to influence what path the India-Pakistan disputes takes.
After the cancellation of the talks between the national security advisers of both sides, both countries have accused the other of violating the ceasefire agreement that has led to loss of civilian lives as well as casualties to the army.
Indian forces had committed over 70 unprovoked ceasefire violations on the Line of Control and the Working Boundary in July and August respectively.
