 The United States Department of State on Wednesday welcomed the resumption of high-speed internet services in Jammu and Kashmir.

4G internet services were restored in the region on Friday, 18 months after the Centre had suspended them on August 4, 2019 just a day before it announced the abrogation of Article 370.

Responding to the developments, the US administration said, “We welcome the resumption of 4G mobile internet in India's Jammu & Kashmir. This marks an important step for local residents and we look forward to continued political & economic progress to restore normalcy in J&K. “

The Indian government is yet to respond to the State department’s tweet.
