The bilateral-discussions between the visiting Parliamentarians from Pakistan with their Indian counterparts has 'rekindled hope' among some separatist leaders of Kashmir valley.
Responding to the visit of an 18-member delegation of Pakistani parliamentarians to India, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chairman, Yasin Malik on Friday said that they are not against the friendship between India and Pakistan.
"We want the leadership of both the countries to leave their 'non-serious approach' and solve the vexed Kashmir issue that benefits the Kashmiri people, by involving them in the resolution process", said Malik.
"However, once again the Kashmiris have been left out in the dialogue process. This approach of leadership of both the countries will bring negative results," he added.
The delegation arrived in Delhi on Wednesday led by Pakistan's deputy chairman of Senate Sabir Ali Baloch and met Indian lawmakers as 4th round of dialogue process started between the two countries.
Both groups discussed confidence building measures, the trust deficit between the two nations and the recent bilateral developments among other issues.
