The UK continues to follow the situation in Kashmir closely. Officials at the British High Commission in New Delhi engage regularly with human rights organisations on the situation. We continue to be in regular contact with the governments of India and Pakistan, both through our diplomatic networks in New Delhi and Islamabad, and in London. Any allegation of human rights violations or abuse is deeply concerning and must be investigated thoroughly, promptly, and transparently.
