According to Indian Newspaper “The Hindu”, Chancellor Angela Merkel was of the view that lockdown of the region cannot be supported for long.
“The situation now for the people (in Indian Occupied Kashmir) is not good and not sustainable. This has to be improved for sure,” said Ms. Merkel to a group of German journalists who travelled to Delhi for the visit.
