Indian government reacts over United States response on Occupied Kashmir issue

WASHINGTON: Indian government reacts over United States response on Occupied Kashmir issue and called it an internal matter of India.

The United States on Monday urged India to engage in discussion with those affected by its decision to revoke Kashmir’s special status.

However US noted that New Delhi describes this action as an “internal matter”.

“We are closely following the events in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

We take note of India’s announcement revising the constitutional status of Jammu and Kashmir and India’s plan to split the state into two union territories,” said State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus.

The statement issued in Washington, however, also referred to India’s position on this issue, without mentioning the Pakistani position. “We note that the Indian government has described these actions as strictly an internal matter,” Ms Ortagus said.
