China cannot equate Kashmir with Tibet issue

Nov. 24 (Daily Pioneer/by Claude Arpi): China should not forget that Jammu & Kashmir lives under Article 370 of the Indian Constitution.

Suppose tomorrow New Delhi tells Beijing, “If you must club Jammu & Kashmir with Tibet, why don’t you have something like ‘Article 370’ for Tibet and all the Tibetan-inhabited areas? It will be to your benefit, the Tibetan issue will be settled, and after a ‘larger autonomy’ is granted to Tibet, one can certainly find an arrangement to sort out the India-Tibet border issue.”
