New Delhi:

External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup on Friday addressed media on China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

“CPEC passes through sovereign Indian territory, we have expressed our concerns to China and Pakistan. We have never refused talks but Pakistan has to ensure a peaceful atmosphere. Pakistan needs to stop supporting terror,” said Vikas Swarup.
