Kashmir issue India’s internal matter: Dhaka
Bangladesh has described the matter related to Jammu and Kashmir as an internal issue of India.
"Bangladesh maintains that the abrogation of Article 370 by the Indian Government is an internal issue of India," said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday sharing Bangladesh's position on
Jammu and Kashmir.
It said Bangladesh has always advocated, as a matter of principle, that maintaining regional peace and stability, as well as development should be a priority for all countries.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government on August 5 stripped Jammu and Kashmir of its semi-autonomy and statehood, creating two federal territories.
The order revokes Article 370 of India's Constitution, which gives the state of Jammu and Kashmir its own constitution and decision-making rights for all matters except for defense, communications and foreign affairs.
