Canada continues to closely follow developments in Jammu and Kashmir

Statement

August 13, 2019 - Ottawa, Ontario - Global Affairs Canada

The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today issued the following statement:

“Canada continues to closely follow developments in Jammu and Kashmir.

“In recent days, I have spoken to many Canadians—including Canadians of Kashmiri descent who have family in Jammu and Kashmir—about this important issue. Like them, Canada is concerned about the risk of escalation, infringements on civil rights and reports of detentions.

“We encourage meaningful discussions and consultations with affected communities.

“We call on all parties to maintain peace and stability along the Line of Control and in the region.”
