French President Emmanuel Macron has met with India's prime minister, discussing climate and other concerns ahead of the G-7 summit but also pressing for dialogue with Pakistan over the crisis in occupied Kashmir.
The meeting on Thursday with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was part of a marathon day of diplomacy for Macron, who is touching base with key countries before the weekend summit in Biarritz. Modi will be a special guest there.

Macron met earlier on Thursday with new British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Greece's prime minister.

ARTICLE CONTINUES AFTER AD

Macron said he stressed the need for India and Pakistan to resolve differences bilaterally and avoid an escalation.On Aug 5, Modi downgraded the autonomy of Muslim-majority occupied Kashmir and sent thousands of troops to the region. Modi made no mention of Kashmir in his statement.

Earlier on Tuesday, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had expressed hope that France would "play its due role to ensure peace and stability in the region".

Qureshi said this after a telephonic conversation with French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian. The foreign minister had apprised his French counterpart of the "grave risk to peace and security in the region" stemming from the steps taken by India.He had urged France "to impress upon India to lift the curfew and ameliorate the hardships and sufferings of the people" in Indian-occupied Kashmir.

The French foreign minister had said that France "was extremely concerned at the situation and urged both sides to engage in a bilateral dialogue". The French minister had underscored the need "to ensure that there was no further escalation". He impressed upon the fact that France would have the same message for India.

Later in the same day, a French official had said that French President Macron would discuss tensions in the divided region of Kashmir with Indian Prime Minister Modi when the two meet in Paris.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had also weighed in on Kashmir on Tuesday telling Modi in a phone call that the issue was one for India and Pakistan to resolve between themselves through dialogue.





مقبوضہ کشمیر کی حیثیت یکطرفہ بدلنے کا اقدام بھارتی وزیر اعظم نریندر مودی کے گلے پڑگیا، مودی فرانس پہنچے توصدر میکرون نے بھی کشمیر کی صورتحال پر بات شروع کردی۔

بھارتی وزیر اعظم فرانس کے دورے پر ہیں، جہاں فرانسیسی صدر ایمانیوئل میکرون سے ملاقات ہوئی، انہوں نے مودی سے مسئلہ کشمیر پر بات کی اور بعد میں صحافیوں کو بتایا کہ انہوں نے بھارتی وزیر اعظم پر زور دیا ہے کہ وہ پاکستان سے مذاکرات کریں اور پاکستان سے مل کرمسئلہ کشمیر کاحل تلاش کریں۔

ایمانیوئل میکرون نے کہا کہ فرانس کشمیر میں عام شہریوں کے حقوق پر توجہ مرکوز رکھے گا، ایل او سی کے اطراف آبادی کے مفادات اور حقوق یقینی بنانا ہوں گے، حالات خراب کرنے سے اجتناب کیا جائے۔

صدر میکرون نے کہا کہ وہ آئندہ چند روز میں وزیر اعظم عمران خان سے بھی بات کریں گے کہ کشمیر کے معاملے پر دو طرفہ بنیادوں پر بات ہونی چاہیے۔

Bargaining with Pakistan, lifting the lock down, if Pakistan could agree on to accept this whole Kashmir issue as india's internal matter and back off.
The question is will people of J&K sit quietly now even if tomm Endia restores 35A and 370? What would you do if you were imprisoned in your home for 17 days and your internet and phone was cut off? You weren't allowed to celebrate Eid, your kids were jailed w/out trial. It's my opinion curfew and communications blockade will not be lifted any time soon and things will only escalate from here. This is just phase 1 of the grand plan Endia has. They will do anything to provoke a reaction from Pakistan. Possible next steps of their plans maybe

1. Release of water to cause flooding
2. Black swan incident in Pakistan by assassinating public figures. Activating TTP, Kulbhushans etc esp with Muharram approaching
3. Black swan or Pulwama 2.0/Uri 2.0/Pathankot 2.0 in Endia to do another Balakot 2.0 or ground offensive
4. Utilizing forces like Molana Fazlu and opposition to lock down Islamabad

Pakistan should prepare contingencies for all of these and counter with jaw breaking reply.

Was so called Pulwama attacker Dar from cross border? Was Burhan Wani from cross border? If you are blind that this latest action in J&K is going to produce 100s of Dar's and Burhan's, then I have a bridge in AJK to sell to you.

Your concern is appreciated, but I am pondering over what fascist Hindus are thinking.

I mentioned four points of what they maybe thinking. Please ponder on that. One thing is obvious they have no plans to restore normalcy to Kashmir. Keep that in mind as you ponder away.

Yeah only desh bakhts RSS Bajrandal are the fools here. Keep living in a fallacy and keep pretending how imprisoning 8 million people will not create more Burhan's and Dar's. You should go check out how secure LOC is and then come talk about how easy it is to cross over. While you are at it, also talk to Col. Prohit. You can't talk to Hemant Karkare bec he was conveniently executed.

So they will bargain to spare Kashmiris only if Pakistan agrees that its the internal matter of Kashmir! What's in this for Pakistan and Kashmiris. Nothing. Why would anybody think that Pakistan accept that.

On the first day of Indian PM Narendra Modi’s visit, President Emmanuel Macron called on India and Pakistan to resolve the Kashmir crisis, saying France would "remain attentive to ensuring" that the rights of people on both sides were respected.

More than a year after their last summit, Macron and Modi met again Thursday ahead of the weekend’s G7 summit in Biarritz, to which Modi had been invited although India is not a formal member of the grouping.

Defence and commercial contracts have dominated the agenda during meetings between French and Indian leaders in recent years. But this time, Modi and Macron met under the shadow of India’s controversial August 5 scrapping of a key constitutional article granting autonomy to the disputed Kashmir region.

The scrapping of Article 370 was implemented under an unprecedented lockdown on Kashmir. Thousands of Kashmiris – including prominent political leaders – have been detained, communication lines cut and mobility in the Kashmir Valley has been severely restricted with the deployment of tens of thousands of additional Indian troops in one of the world’s most militarised zones.

France will remain attentive

At the end of a meeting with Modi at the Château de Chantilly near Paris on Thursday, Macron noted that, “France will remain attentive to ensuring that the interests and rights of the civilian population are duly taken into account in the territories on both sides of the Line of Control [between India and Pakistan in the disputed Kashmir region]."

Macron reiterated the French position that the Kashmir issue should be resolved on a bilateral basis. While Pakistan seeks multilateral negotiations to help resolve the crisis, India maintains it is a bilateral issue, which strengthens New Delhi’s position.

"I recalled that it was up to India and Pakistan to resolve their dispute bilaterally," Macron added. "It is the responsibility of both parties to avoid any degradation on the ground likely to lead to escalation."

Macron said that he would speak to Pakistan’s prime minister "in the coming days” and remind him of “France’s willingness to see this issue dealt with bilaterally."

Modi made no mention of the Kashmir crisis in his statement.
