US senator ‘deeply concerned about situation in Kashmir’

Washington, September 01 (KMS): The United States must support UN-backed peaceful resolution in Kashmir, US senator and presidential contender Bernie Sanders said on Saturday, adding that he was “deeply concerned about the situation” in Jammu and Kashmir.

The 77-year-old leader, speaking at an event, emphasised that the “communication blockade must be lifted immediately” in the Kashmir Valley. “I am deeply concerned about the situation in Kashmir…” he said.

Jammu and Kashmir has been under strict restrictions since the Indian government announced its decision to end its special status and split it into two union territories on August 5.

“The communication blockade must be lifted immediately and the US government must speak out boldly in support of international humanitarian law and in support of UN backed peaceful resolution that supports the will of Kashmiri people,” the seasoned Democrat leader added.
