Ahmad Al Banna, the UAE ambassador to India, said he has taken note of the Indian government’s “decision of non-operationalisation of some sections of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution related to the state of Jammu and Kashmir”.
“We also took note of the introduction of Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill in the Indian Parliament aimed at replacing Article 370 with the creation of Ladakh region and the state of Jammu and Kashmir as India’s two new Union Territories.”
He added that from his understanding “the reorganisation of states is not a unique incident in the history of independent India and that it was mainly aimed at reducing regional disparity and improving efficiency”.
Al Banna said the latest decision related to the state of Jammu and Kashmir is “an internal matter as stipulated by the Indian Constitution”.
