Foreign envoys reach Kashmir to assess ground situation

US Ambassador to India Kenneth I Juster along with envoys from 15 other countries arrived here on a two-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday.

The Delhi-based envoys arrived here by a special chartered flight at Srinagar’s technical airport where top officials from the newly carved out union territory received them, The Tribune quoted officials as having said.

Besides the US, the delegation includes diplomats from Bangladesh, Vietnam, Norway, Maldives, South Korea, Morocco, and Nigeria, among others.

Envoys from the European Union (EU) are not a part of the group. They will make a trip to Jammu and Kashmir at a later date, according to newspaper, The Hindu said a person who declined to be named.

“Reports that EU ambassadors are not part of the group of envoys visiting Jammu and Kashmir due to certain restrictions in the programme are unfounded and mischievous,” The Hindu quoted the person as saying.

Later in the day, they would be going to Jammu, the winter capital of the newly created Union Territory, for an overnight stay.
