US House Foreign Affairs Committee Writes Letter To S Jaishankar
The letter to the External Affairs Minister expressed support for US-India relationship and anniversary of Article 370 revocation in Jammu-Kashmir.
The United States House Foreign Affairs Committee (HFAC) wrote a letter to External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar expressing concern over Jammu and Kashmir. The letter by the US HFAC expressed “bipartisan support for the US-India relationship” while noting their concern that “one year after the revocation of Article 370, things are yet to normalize in Jammu and Kashmir.” Throwing their weight behind the US-India relationship which enjoys the bipartisan support, two top American lawmakers have said that close partnership between the two countries assumes significance in view of the “aggression” that New Delhi faces from Beijing.
The letter, signed by Eliot Engel, Chairman of HFAC and Michael T McCaul, Ranking Member, said, “As Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in February of this year, our ties are no longer just about partnership. It is a far greater and closer relationship.” Their remarks came amid the border face-off between India and China in eastern Ladakh. The United States will remain steadfast in support of India’s efforts to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity, said the letter which was also tweeted.
