TEHRAN, August 14 - Iran urged India to embark on normalizing life in Kashmir, whose residents have faced with tough security conditions.

Iran calls for Indian effort to normalize life in KashmirTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - In a statement on Tuesday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi expressed concern over reports of tight security conditions in different parts of Kashmir that have affected ordinary civilians and restrictions on Muslims who want to perform religious rites.

He also called on the Indian authorities to make arrangements for the immediate normalization of life for people of Kashmir, in a way that they could fully enjoy their natural and recognized rights.

Last week, Mousavi called on India and Pakistan to adopt peaceful approaches to resolving the tensions in the disputed Kashmir region after New Delhi stripped India-administered Kashmir of special constitutional status.

In the lead-up to its move, India sent thousands of additional troops to the region, imposing a curfew on parts of it, shutting down telecommunications and arresting political leaders.

Both India and Pakistan claim Kashmir in full, but rule it in part. The two neighbors have fought two of their three wars over the disputed territory.
