New Delhi: Indian Army Chief General VK Singh says there are nearly 4,000 Chinese in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir including several soldiers of the People's Liberation Army.

"There are certain construction teams present in PoK. There are around 3000-4000 people present for various construction work. There are certain people for the security of these people and certain engineer groups. In some way they are part of the PLA," General Singh said on Wednesday.

However, the Ministry of External Affairs has played down the threat of Chinese soldiers present in PoK.
