India

Top American diplomats have on multiple occasions reached out to the Indian government in private, seeking information about the situation in the Kashmir Valley and even expressed concern over detentions of political leaders and restrictions clamped in the region following the abrogation of Article 370, it was revealed in a report by Indian media outlet ThePrint.

Sources in the government said that questions on Kashmir came up during discussions with senior diplomats of the US, besides other countries. Not only US embassy officials, but also visiting American officials have sought information on Kashmir during their meetings with the Modi government, a source said.

The government has, however, made it clear to all the countries that Kashmir is an internal issue and all decisions are being taken depending on the situation there, a second source told ThePrint.
