ISLAMABAD - India gets a strong snub from ally United States over Occupied Kashmir lockdown.
US Senator Bernie Sanders expressed serious concern over the deteriorating conditions in occupied Kashmir and termed India’s actions “unacceptable”.
The veteran senator, who is a fierce critic of the Donald Trump administration, said the US government must ensure the implementation of international laws and should press for a peaceful resolution through the United Nations (UN).
“India’s action [in Kashmir] is unacceptable. The communications blockade must be lifted immediately, and the US government must speak out boldly in support of international humanitarian law and in support of a UN-backed peaceful resolution,” said Sanders, who is one of the leading Democratic presidential candidates.
Speaking at the Islamic Society of North America, the senator said India’s “crackdown in the name of ‘security’ is also denying the Kashmiri people access to medical care”.
