The US is watching the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and continues to be "very concerned by reports of detentions and the continued restrictions on the residents of the region," a US State Department spokesperson said yesterday, according to NDTV. "We urge respect for human rights, compliance with legal procedures, and an inclusive dialogue with those affected," the spokesperson said in response to media queries on reports that the US government was consistently raising human rights issues in Kashmir with India. Three days ago, US President Donald Trump had discussed Jammu and Kashmir "at great length" with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the sidelines of the G7 summit at Biarritz in France.
