We are monitoring the situation in Kashmir closely. We are in regular contact with the Government of India. Most recently, I raised our concerns regarding restrictions and detentions in Kashmir with the Indian Minister of State for External and Parliamentary Affairs, Mr Muraleedharan. We have called for restrictions to be lifted as soon as possible. It is important that individual rights are fully respected and that there is constructive dialogue with affected communities.
