A day after an all party delegation reached out to separatists in Srinagar, moderate faction of the Hurriyat Conference on Tuesday accused the Centre of not making a serious effort to address the Kashmir issue saying talks were not possible in a coercive atmosphere.

"The Indian government is making no serious attempt to address the (Kashmir) issue. They are not in any serious manner even acknowledging our suffering, but continue to use more and more force and structured repression to suppress our movement," Chairman of the faction Mirwaiz Umer Farooq said in a letter to Embassies and High Commissions of several countries in the National Capital.

While the Hurriyat Conference was for a meaningful dialogue for the resolution of Kashmir issue, talks cannot be held in a coercive atmosphere, the Mirwaiz said in his letter written to foreign diplomats in Delhi on the occasion of 'world day for peace'.
