China defends ally Pak over terror charges; says India meddling in Bhutan affairs

A day after India and the US asked Pakistan to stop cross-border terror China strongly defended its 'all-weather' ally, making it clear that it was Islamabad that was at the frontlines of the fight against terrorism. The remarks came in response to the India-US joint statement issued after the talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump. China also accused India of meddling in Bhutan’s affairs and interfering in its road construction on land that clearly belonged to China. China has also stopped pilgrims from proceeding to Mansarovar since the dispute along the Sikkim border.
