To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what recent representations he has made to the UN Security Council on the implementation of resolutions in Kashmir.
6 November 2020
The longstanding position of the UK is that it is for India and Pakistan to find a lasting political resolution on Kashmir, taking into account the wishes of the Kashmiri people. We encourage both sides to engage in dialogue and find lasting, diplomatic solutions to maintain regional stability.
It is not for the UK to prescribe a solution or act as mediator, and it would be for both parties to agree if they wanted any external mediation on Kashmir. The UN Security Council last discussed Kashmir on 5 August.
