A two-member team of the British High Commission arrived in Srinagar on Friday on a two-day visit to assess the situation in the backdrop of latest peace process between India and Pakistan.

Headed by British High Commissioner to India Richard Stagg, the team held discussions with Hurriyat Conference Chairman Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Opposition People's Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti, official sources said.

The other member of the team included Victoria Vilffered, the first secretary in the British High Commission.

The team is also scheduled to meet Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.

Soon after their arrival, the team met the PDP president on the political situation of the state.

The visit of the team comes close on the heels of a week-long visit by a team from Amnesty International.
