External affairs minister SM Krishna on Thursday (December 16) brought up Kashmir during his meeting with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. According to sources, Krishna told Jiabao that Kashmir is still a core issue and Kashmir to India is like what Tibet is to China.

Issues like stapled visa and boundary disputes were also brought up. The Chinese Premier has told Krishna that Foreign Ministers of both countries must resolve all pending issues.

Wen conveyed this to External Affairs Minister S M Krishna when the latter called on him here.

Both the foreign ministers should look into all pending issues, Wen is understood to have told Krishna, sources privy to the conversation said.

Warmly greeting Krishna, Wen told him that when China and India meet, the whole world watches.
