Qureshi told Pompeo about the ongoing human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir, highlighting that over eight million people have been detained in the region with no access to internet for the past five months, a Foreign Office statement said.

Qureshi noted that a communications blackout in the valley remains in place in order “to conceal the facts from the world’s view”. “The dream of a ‘peaceful South Asia’ of the US and Pakistan cannot be realised until the Kashmir dispute is resolved in accordance with United Nations resolutions and through a plebiscite of eight million Kashmiris,” the FO quoted Qureshi as saying.
