Foreign envoys to meet JK LG Manoj Sinha, others in Jammu today

Jammu: A group of 24 foreign envoys, who are on a two-day visit to the Union Territory, will visit Jammu on the second day of their tour on Thursday.

The Delegation of diplomats from foreign missions, including the European Union will be briefed by Army and Police in Srinagar today, after which the group of envoys will call on the Chief Justice of Jammu and Kashmir High Court, in Jammu.

They will also attend a lunch hosted by Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha. The diplomats are also scheduled to meet civil society representatives today.

The visit follows the restoration of 4G internet services in Kashmir after an 18-month-long ban, after India abrogated Article 370 which granted Kashmir autonomy.

Reports said, a series of bunkers were removed from various parts of Srinagar city ahead of the visit of European Union delegation.

Meanwhile, a local news gathering agency, Kashmir News Trust reported that the City Centre Lal Chowk is shut on the arrival of envoys.

The former chief minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief has said that the delegations will come and go but the fact remains that the situation isn’t favorable in J&K.

All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has appealed to the foreign delegation to “facilitate a dialogue between India, Pakistan, and people of Jammu and Kashmir for the resolution of this long-standing dispute of the region.”
