In yet another diplomatic achievement for Pakistan, US Congress moved on Occupied Kashmir conflict
WASHINGTON: In yet another diplomatic achievement for Pakistan, United States Congress moved on Occupied Kashmir conflict over worrying reports from all quarters.
At least three letters have been written by the top US lawmakers to the administration over Occupied Kashmir.
“The reports we are receiving from Kashmir are harrowing with allegations including forced disappearances, mass detentions, rape and sexual assault, and the targeted detention of political, economic and social leaders,” says a letter signed by seven US lawmakers.
This is the third letter in less than a week that American congressmen and senators have written to the US administration, underlining their concern on the situation in Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
In one of the letters, four key US Senators urged President Donald Trump to play a constructive role in helping resolve Kashmir and other underlying disputes between Pakistan and India — a role that would require him to mediate between South Asia’s two nuclear powers.
In a letter to US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, Congresswoman Jayapal and Congressman James P. McGovern demanded that the international media and independent human rights observers immediately be allowed into Jammu and Kashmir to investigate reports of abuse.
