J-K briefing: Foreign minister S Jaishankar meets US special envoy


United States special envoy for Afghan reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad was on Tuesday briefed by Indian interlocutors on New Delhi’s decision to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, people familiar with developments said.

Khalilzad, who is in Delhi on a two-day trip to forge consensus on US’ efforts to end the fighting in Afghanistan, is the senior-most American official to visit India after New Delhi’s surprise move to end Kashmir’s special status and split it into two union territories — Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.

There was no official readout on the meeting between Khalilzad and external affairs minster S Jaishankar, who only tweeted he had “useful discussions” with the US special envoy.  Read more
