Expressing concern over the situation in Kashmir, Keir Starmer, leader of the British Labor Party, said that the protection of human rights was a top priority and that he wanted to promote peace.
Keir Starmer, leader of the British Labor Party, wrote a letter to Afzal Khan, a British MP of Pakistani descent, stating that the party’s position on the Kashmir issue had not changed.
“I want to promote peace, but the protection of human rights is the first priority, so Pakistan and India should work together with the Kashmiris to find a solution,” said keir Starmer.
“We have a role to play in reducing tensions between communities,” he said.
On the other hand, British Pakistani MP Afzal Khan has welcomed the statement of party chief Keir Starmer.
The atrocities and state terrorism of the Indian Army continue in occupied Kashmir and the curfew imposed by the Modi government in the Valley has been in place for more than nine months.
All communications in the valley, including mobile and internet, have been cut off since August 5 last year, while the Hurriyat leadership and political leaders remain locked in homes and jails.
