The United States is “closely following the events in the state of Jammu and Kashmir”, its Department of State said in a statement issued late Monday.
Reacting to the events unfolding in occupied Kashmir, the US State Department said: “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.
“We note that the Indian government has described these actions as strictly an internal matter. We are concerned about reports of detentions and urge respect for individual rights and discussion with those in affected communities,” the statement added.
In addition, the State Department further called for all stakeholders to maintain peace.
