China: Ready to hold talks with India to resolve differences over CPEC

China has said that it is ready to hold talks with India to resolve differences over the 50 billion US Dollars China-Pakistan Economic Corridor that passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, days after India's envoy in Beijing said the issue should not be swept under the carpet. 
India has objected to the CPEC - which is the biggest project of the Belt and Road Initiative - as it traverses through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and has become a contentious issue in India-China relations.
Asked about Indian Ambassador to China Gautam Bambawale's interview to state-run Global Times in which he had said that the differences over CPEC should not be brushed aside, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Hua Chunying said China is willing to hold talks with India in this regard. 
In his interview last week, Bambawale had said CPEC passes through Indian-claimed territory and hence violates their territorial integrity. China in the past also evinced interest to resolve it through talks and even its envoy in New Delhi has said Beijing is willing to change the project's name to make it more acceptable to India.
