The UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan is mandated to observe ceasefire violations across the Line of Control between India and Pakistan and report these to the UN Secretary General. We remain concerned by some ongoing restrictions on mobile internet access in India-administered Kashmir and call on the Government of India to lift these restrictions as soon as possible.
