Imphal, July 10:

Manipur’s conflict is finally reaching the European Union. As per a statement, Alber & Geiger, a specialized EU lobbying law firm currently representing the Embassy of India to the EU is all set to table the Manipur issue to the EU Plenary Session which is scheduled from July 10 to July 13 in Strasbourg.
“We are writing to draw your attention and share our views and concerns regarding the Urgency Resolution “India, the Situation in Manipur”, which is planned to be tabled in the agenda of the next Plenary Session, 10-13 July, in Strasbourg”, a statement said.
“The instability in Manipur, unfortunately, has been ongoing for a long time. Currently, the government of India is working incessantly in order to mitigate the conflict and restore peace in that area and also constituted a Peace Committee in Manipur to facilitate communication between the parties. Therefore, the internal situation in Manipur should be discussed between the Parliament and India before such a harsh Urgency Resolution is discussed by the Parliament. As the EU and India are negotiating an FTA, and India would be a future strategic partner for the EU, India should not be prevented from explaining its position in such a situation. Since the deadline to table this is on the 10th of July, and the opportunity to review this decision is short, we would kindly ask not to include Urgency Resolution “India, the Situation in Manipur” in the items of the agenda for the next Plenary Session”, a letter by Martina Morabito.
