‚ÄčThe UK's longstanding position is that it is for India and Pakistan to find a lasting political resolution to the situation in Kashmir, taking into account the wishes of the Kashmiri people. We encourage India and Pakistan to maintain positive dialogue and good relations, but the pace of progress must be for them to determine.
