The moderate faction of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has invited the Prime Ministers of India and Pakistan to meet in Kashmir and start a tripartite dialogue process aimed at resolving the Kashmir issue.
APHC(M) Chairman Mirwaiz Umer Farooq said this at the Idgah graveyard where he paid a tribute to his late father Mirwaiz Maulvi Mohammad Farooq, who was killed on this day in 1991.
Umer said he welcomed the ongoing talks between India and Pakistan in Islamabad. “I propose both Prime Ministers meet in Kashmir and initiate a round of talks here,” he said, adding that the meetings could take place in Srinagar, Muzaffarabad, Islamabad and Delhi.
Umer said the Kashmir issue cannot be solved bilaterally “unless and until the people of Jammu and Kashmir are involved in the dialogue process.” He called for the re-unification of the APHC.
