Speaking to WION, Asein said, “This visit has shown that government has no any hidden agenda for the region of J&K. One of the best results of the hard work of administration is DDC election, which was not able ever before. And now, it seems, a good time to go far from a period of tension by the activity of administration and local population”
2 Envoys from central Asia were present in the visit, the envoy of the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan’s envoy. The batch had 24 envoys with the biggest group from Europe. This is the 3rd such visit of foreign envoys to the union territory in the last year, but the first one this year. The visit comes in the backdrop of the DDC elections and the resumption of high-speed 4G internet.
