To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the human rights situation in Kashmir. [154117]

Mr. Wilson

We remain deeply concerned about the human rights situation in Kashmir, including reports of abuses by security forces and militants. My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary discussed this issue with his Indian counterpart, Jaswant Singh, during talks in London in November last year. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.
