India, Pak must sit and find solution to Kashmir issue: Farooq Abdullah


Srinagar: National Conference President Farooq Abdullah on Friday said he was in favour of resuming talks with Pakistan for restoring peace in the valley.

He made these observations after holding an all party meet at his residence to discuss the prevailing situation in Kashmir. The meeting was attended by almost all the opposition leaders from the Kashmir Valley.

“We are only interested in peace. India and Pakistan must sit down and resolve their issues,” he said.

Invoking Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s remarks, Abdullah said, “Remember what Vajpayeeji said ‘we can’t choose our neighbours’, so we have to talk to Pakistan, there is no other option.”

He said, “Only talks can bring a solution. If both countries sit together as friends, there can be a solution.”

NC chief said he was concerned at the turmoil in the Kashmir Valley that has left over 90 people dead and thousands injured since the July 8 killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.

The situation, he said, demanded that “a solution needs to be found” to the vexed Kashmir issue.
