India ensures Pakistan’s London event on Kashmir becomes a flop show


India activated its diplomatic channels with the United Kingdom to ensure that Pakistan’s conference in London on the issue of Kashmir saw no official endorsement by Britain.

The conference is an annual affair organised by Pakistan to mark Kashmir Solidarity Day on February 5. This year’s London event was led by Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.

Sources told India Today TV that after New Delhi took up the issue with London, British officials told Indian diplomats that while they could not stop anybody from holding the conference, they would ensure no official participation and would treat Quereshi’s trips as a “private visit”.

The British High Commission spokesperson in New Delhi said, “We understand Mr Qureshi is travelling to London to attend a number of private events. There are no plans for meetings with the UK Government during this visit.” Read More
