US concerned over Kashmir killings, calls it India's internal affair

 The US has raised concern over Kashmir violence that has claimed 30 lives, but has made it clear that it is India's affair.

 
"Obviously, we're concerned about the violence," US State Department spokesperson John Kirby said in his daily press briefing on Monday.
 
"We encourage all sides to make efforts towards finding a peaceful resolution," he said.
 
"This is really a matter for the Government of India to speak to specifically, and I'd refer you to them for more comment," he added.
 
Since violence began on Saturday  after the death of top Hizbul Mujahideen commander, Burhan Wani, 22, who was killed in a gunfight on Friday along with two of his associates, 30 people including 29 civilian protesters and a policeman have died.
