New Delhi: German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed concerns over the current situation of Kashmir saying the lockdown of the region cannot be supported for long. The German leader’s comments came hours after India and Germany agreed to work on bilateral and multilateral platforms to counter terrorism and extremism.
“The situation now for the people in Kashmir is not good and not sustainable. This has to be improved for sure,” said Ms. Merkel to a group of German journalists who travelled to Delhi for the visit.
The German leader who is on a three day visit to India sealed 17 MoUs and five Joint Declarations of Intent covering a wide range of issues including agriculture, education, marine science and heritage conservation.
