China said on Tuesday it opposed India's decision to revoke the special status of Kashmir, because it undermined China's territorial sovereignty.
In a move to tighten its grip on the Himalayan region, India dropped a constitutional provision that allowed the region to make its own laws.
"India's action is unacceptable and would not have any legal effect," foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in a statement on the ministry's website.
China urged India to be cautious on border issues and to strictly abide by the agreements reached by both countries in order to avoid any actions that would further complicate boundary issues, Hua said.
