Kashmir: Human Rights

Volume 477: debated on Friday 13 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with the government of India on the human rights situation in Indian-held Kashmir in the last 12 months. (209968)

We continue to raise our concerns over alleged human rights violations in Kashmir on both sides of the Line of Control, including with the Government of India. Human rights issues in India, including in relation to Indian administered Kashmir, were raised at the EU-India Human Rights Dialogue in March. We have called for an end to all external support for violence in Kashmir and an improvement in the human rights situation.
