China must pay attention to India's concerns over the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a top Chinese scholar said on Thursday, adding that Beijing could not do much because of Pakistan's unwillingness to sort out the issue.
Wang also lamented that India was among the countries, which attacked China's Belt and Road Project.
However, Wang made clear China's strong resolve to build the $46 billion CPEC, which goes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. New Delhi claims the region as its own.
Wang said India need not worry and be suspicious over the multi-billion dollar project, which links China's Kashgar with Pakistan's Gwadar port.
CPEC is one of the six key corridors of the Chinese Belt and Road project, which envisages linking Asia with Europe.
It's because of this that India is unlikely to attend China's Belt and Road conference in Beijing later this month.
China said heads of 28 states have confirmed their participation at the event.
