India and France reaffirmed their commitment to fighting terrorism and called for rooting out terrorist safe havens and infrastructure, disrupting terrorist networks and their financing channels, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi and French President Emmanuel Macron met at the picturesque Chateau de Chantilly on Thursday.

Earlier, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said India was heading towards genocide in occupied Kashmir and the global community needed to open its eyes towards the propaganda by Indian media.

"India and France have excellent bilateral ties, which are reinforced by a shared vision to cooperate for further enhancing peace and prosperity for our two countries and the world at large", the prime minister said.

PM Modi and Trump will meet in France this weekend on the sidelines of the G7 summit.

Special Rapporteur on freedom of opinion David Kaye (USA), Special Rapporteur on human rights Michel Forst (France), Chair-Rapporteur Working Group on Enforced Disappearances Bernard Duhaime, Special Rapporteur on right to peaceful assembly Clement Nyaletsossi Voule and Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial executions Agnes Callamard expressed concern over the human rights situation after Indian parliament revoked the constitutionally-mandated status of Jammu and Kashmir. When contacted, a senior Foreign Ministry official in Colombo told The Hindu: "It is India's internal matter and we do not comment on countries' internal affairs". The official also acknowledged, for the first time perhaps by a U.S. offical, that "India has not requested any formal mediation". China also controls part of the contested region, but it is India and Pakistan who have fought two wars over Kashmir.

India and Pakistan will have to find a solution to the issue and no third party should interfere or incite violence in the region.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump, once again, offered to mediate on Kashmir, saying: "Kashmir is a very complicated place".

India and Pakistan both hold Kashmir in parts and claim it in full.

He said India had no right to change the status of Kashmir, and New Delhi had violated all the United Nations resolutions related to the Kashmir dispute.
