British PM Theresa May Says Kashmir Is A Matter For India, Pakistan To Sort Out

Clearly indicating that Kashmir was unlikely to be on the agenda during her bilateral talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi when she visits India next month, British Prime Minister Theresa May said that the UK’s stand on Kashmir remains unchanged and the issue of Kashmir is a matter for India and Pakistan to deal with and sort out. The issue was raised in the House of Commons during the weekly Prime Minister’s Questions session by Pakistani-born Labour MP Yasmin Qureshi, who asked if the Kashmir issue would form part of May’s discussions during her visit to India next month. The British PM is scheduled to arrive in New Delhi on November 6for her first overseas bilateral visit outside Europe. Besides inaugurating the India-UK Tech Summit alongside Modi, she will be holding talks with her Indian counterpart before heading to Bengaluru.
