MEPs appeal for end to Indo-Pak hostilities over Kashmir

BRUSSELS, Forty Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) Friday called for an end of hostilities over Kashmir.

In a letter addressed to Prime Ministers Narendra Modi of India , Imran Khan of Pakistan , as well as the EU’s High Representative Federica Mogherini and European Parliament President Antonio Tajani, they voiced “grave concern with the ongoing hostilities” between India and Pakistan.” They appealed to both countries to “enter dialogue for immediate cessation”, and deplored the Pushwana attack and welcomed the voluntary repatriation to India of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman by Pakistan.

Over 40 Indian soldiers were killed in a terror attack in Kashmir’s Pulwama district in February.
