US 'concerned' about detentions, curbs in J&K

Aug 30, 2019 11:10 IST

The US has said that it is "very concerned by reports of detentions and the continued restrictions on the residents of Jammu and Kashmir". A US State Department spokesperson added that "We urge respect for human rights, compliance with legal procedures, and an inclusive dialogue with those affected." The State Department also welcomed PM Modi's statement that J&K will soon return to a normal political status. In an indirect warning to Pakistan, the spokesperson also underscored the need to "maintain peace and stability along the Line of Control and to prevent cross-border terrorism".
