Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday welcomed Home Minister P Chidambaram’s statement that the Centre was ready to initiate a dialogue with the representatives of all shades of opinion.

This is first formal statement by the state government, indicating that the dialogue process has the support of regional mainstream political parties. The People’s Democratic Party has also praised the Chidambaram’s initiative.

Abdullah stressed that the National Conference too is a party to resolution of the Kashmir issue. “We are all equal stakeholders of peace in the sub-continent especially in Jammu and Kashmir as such we have to contribute and create conducive environment to discuss all issues across the table and find out a solution.”

The Chief Minister said the dialogue process will help to work out solution to Jammu and Kashmir centric problems amicably across the table.

Abdullah also asked Centre to resume dialogue with Pakistan. “There is also a need to resume Indo-Pak talks, which have broken after 26/11 Mumbai incident,” said Abdullah.

The Chief Minister said the gun or war is no solution to any problem. “We have experience of about 20 years of gun culture…gun only adds to miseries without resolving any issue.”
