Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Saturday said that meaningful talks based on a clear agenda underlined by sincerity among the three stakeholders is an assured and peaceful way to resolve the conflict of Kashmir in all its forms and dimensions.
In a statement issued here, while welcoming the statement of Pakistan, wherein they have said that demilitarization of troops in Jammu Kashmir, would lead to resolution of the vexed issue, Geelani hoped that it is aimed at bringing lasting peace in South Asia.
Geelani said “we hope that Pakistan’s demilitarization offer, optimism, spirit of flexibility would be reciprocated by India, to open new vistas of cooperation, resolution of all issues and particularly Kashmir issue in accordance with aspirations of people.”
Geelani said demilitarization in Kashmir would improve the atmosphere and conditions for the Kashmiris, who he alleged are subjected to continuous, suppressive measures and intimidation.
Syed Ali Geelani called for an end to the hostility between India, Pakistan, saying that composite dialogue between all stake holders will definitely make an end to hostility between two nuclear countries and will open avenues for peace and reconciliation in South Asia.
