On Monday, the Indian PM Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government revoked the disputed Jammu and Kashmir’ special status by abrogating Article 370. Sources inside the Indian government told The Print that this was not the first time Washington was briefed on this issue.

In February, two days after the Pulwama attack, India’s National Security Adviser Ajit Doval had called his US counterpart John Bolton of plans to do away with the special status. The sources, however, said the decision to bifurcate the state came much later.

Jaishankar’s meeting with the US secretary of state came on the sidelines of the 9th East Asia Summit Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in Bangkok on August 1. Jaishankar had also reiterated to Pompeo that the US does not need to mediate in the Kashmir dispute and that any discussion on this issue, “if at all warranted”, will only be with Pakistan unilaterally.

The Indian government did not want to take a chance when it came to the US, and so all necessary safeguards were taken to appraise the Trump administration well in advance, sources added.

Sources further stated that the Ministry of External Affairs had also taken the UK, China, France and Russia into confidence over the move. Similarly, envoys of all 15 members of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) were also briefed.

During its briefing to the envoys, New Delhi shared that the proposals being mulled over in the Indian parliament are purely internal to the country itself. “These are aimed at providing good governance, promoting social justice and ensuring economic development in IOK,” the source said. “There has been no international reaction yet on this issue, which shows that India had smartly done its panning well in advance.
