China’s Road-building Continues Unabated in Kashmir’s Shaksgam Valley
China has been carrying out construction work in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir as well, suggested a media report on Thursday. Construction work has been on since the Doklam crisis. Sources said construction was on in an “all-weather road” in Shaksgam which lies north of Siachen. China has finished around 75 km of the 10 mt-wide road. The source added that “Presence of more construction units” within “10-15 km” of one end of the road suggested that “further road extension is likely during the summer period”. The said construction has reportedly been happening after the Doklam crisis.
