India Seeks ‘Satisfactory Resolution’ With UK on Koh-i-Noor Diamond Dispute

India seeks a “satisfactory resolution” with the UK government on the retrieval of the iconic Koh-i-Noor diamond, the Foreign Ministry said on Friday.The remarks came amid a controversy over whether the diamond will be used when Camilla Bowles Paker is crowned Queen Consort on May 6, 2023, alongside her husband, who will be anointed as King Charles III. British media reported that Camilla may not be crowned with the Koh-i-Noor over concerns it may spark negative sentiments towards the UK, particularly from India.Mindful of the sentiments that have been expressed by the Indian public and parliament, Delhi’s Foreign Ministry has time and again raised the matter of the return of the diamond and other antiquities with the UK government.As per the Archaeological Survey of India, the legendary diamond was unearthed in the Golconda mines in central southern India, between the 12th-14th centuries.Records show that it was in the possession of the Mughals till the 16th century. Later, Persians seized it from the Mughals and then the Afghans.According to the Royal Collection Trust, the disputed diamond was “surrendered” to Queen Victoria in 1849 as part of the Treaty of Lahore by the last Sikh Emperor of India Maharaja Duleep Singh when he was 11 years old.Original News : https://sputniknews.com/20221014/india-seeks-satisfactory-resolution-with-uk-on-koh-i-noor-diamond-dispute-1101842989.html
