The second batch of 25 foreign envoys from the European Union and Gulf countries arrived here on Thursday morning for a first-hand assessment of the situation in the Union territory, six months after the nullification of Article 370.
”The envoys arrived here this morning and will be meeting the Chief Justice of J&K High Court, Justice Gita Mittal, Lieutenant Governor Girish Chandra Murmu,” official sources here said.
They further said that the foreign envoys will also meet around 20 various delegations including traders, political, non-political, social, civil society and religious.
The batch includes envoys from Germany, Canada, France, New Zealand, Mexico, Italy, Afghanistan, Austria, Uzbekistan, Poland, as well as envoys of the European Union.
Earlier on January 9-10, a team of 15 envoys, including US Ambassador to India Kenneth Juster, paid a two-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir.
The Central Government abrogated Article 370 and bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into Union Territories, Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh on August 5, 2019.
