Stop MPs’ meet on Kashmir, India tells U.K.

After summoning the Pakistan High Commissioner on Wednesday, India has registered its protest with the British government about an upcoming meet on Kashmir at the British Parliament, the Ministry of External Affairs said. The government also warned of “consequences” if Pakistan continued its actions on Kashmir, which it called a “direct interference in India’s internal affairs”.

“We have told the United Kingdom [government] quite strongly that their territory must not be used for anti-India activity conferences or rallies, and we hope they will take it seriously, and take action against this kind of conference,” said MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar. He was briefing journalists about the measures taken against the meeting in the House of Commons on February 4 of the “All Party Parliamentary Group on Pakistan” (APPG-Pakistan) — a group that includes Conservative and Labour Party MPs.
