'If China uses Skardu airfield, we will deal with it accordingly': IAF Chief

Indian Air Force Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria reacted over reports on China to take help of Pakistan against India.

"Whether China will use Skardu (airfield in Gilgit-Baltistan), is an open-ended question.

But if China needs to take Pakistan's help to confront us, I have nothing to say.

If Skardu gets used by China then it is a collusive threat and we will deal with it accordingly," said IAF Chief.

‘Joe Biden should intervene & resolve Gilgit-Baltistan conflict’: PoK activist

Asserting that Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) has been suffering for the past 73 years under Pakistan colonialism, human rights activist Amjad Ayub Mirza on Wednesday urged the US President-elect Joe Biden to "heal" the "wounded people and divide people" of PoK and Gilgit Baltistan (GB). "Mr President-elect, we have been suffering for the past 73 years under the Pakistan colonialism. And now since, China's Belt and Road initiative has encroached into our land of Gilgit Baltistan we face double colonization of Pakistan and China. And the uncanny military and economic relation between Pakistan and China make this issue more pressing," said Mirza, who is from Mirpur in PoK and is living in exile in the UK. While talking about his problems as a representative of Gilgit Baltistan, he said that given the US President-elect position, Biden is best suited to intervene in their matter and help resolve the issues.
