India objects to recent visit of UK envoy in Pakistan to PoK

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 13 Jan 2024, 05:43 pm

India on Saturday took strong objection to the recent visit of British High Commissioner in Pakistan to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), terming it as "highly objectionable" and "unacceptable".

The Government of India lodged a strong protest with the British government over the development.

British High Commissioner in Pakistan Jane Marriott visited Mirpur in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) on January 10 and met its so-called 'President" Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry.

“India has taken a serious note of the highly objectionable visit of the British High Commissioner in Islamabad, along with a UK Foreign Office official, to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir on January 10,” External Affairs Ministry said in a statement here.

"Such infringement of India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity is unacceptable," it said.

The Statement said Foreign Secretary Vinay Kwatra has "lodged a strong protest with the British High Commissioner in India on this infringement.”
