Washington: Describing Kashmir as an internal matter of India, the US has said it is concerned over the violence and asked all stakeholders to make efforts towards finding a peaceful resolution to the issue following the killing of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani in the Valley.
“We have seen reports of the clashes between protesters and Indian forces in Kashmir, and are concerned by the violence. We encourage all sides to make efforts towards finding a peaceful resolution,” a State Department spokesman said.
The spokesman said the US has not spoken to Indian officials on this issue as it is an internal matter of India.
“We have not. This is an internal matter for the government of India,” the spokesman said in response to a question.
