Brown: I am deeply concerned regarding the recent activity in Kashmir

Congressman Anthony G. Brown (MD-04), Vice Chair of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on Kashmir.

“I am deeply concerned regarding the recent activity in Kashmir. The increasing militarization of the region has created a situation in which a miscalculation can have devastating repercussions. The reports that the Kashmiri freedom of expression, assembly and movement have been restricted are troubling, and these rights must be restored immediately. I urge the governments of India and Pakistan to exercise restraint and to engage with the United States to deescalate the situation.

“I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress and the administration to advance a peaceful resolution to this humanitarian crisis.”
