Kashmir: Communication

UIN 38669, tabled on 21 April 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, during the covid-19 outbreak, what representations he has made to his Indian counterpart on communications in Kashmir.

Answered on

27 April 2020

We are in regular contact with the Indian Government regarding the situation in Kashmir. The Foreign Secretary most recently spoke about Kashmir with Indian External Affairs Minister Jaishankar on 20 April. We welcome reports that some restrictions on communications have now been relaxed, but remain concerned that other restrictions remain in place. We call for these to be lifted as soon as possible.
