Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah gave a back-handed compliment to the BJP-led government at the Centre for continuing on the path of dialogue with Pakistan against the back drop of continued violence in the state, saying it was one U-turn he is "very glad" to see.

"Violence and talks can't go together' BJP circa 2004-2014. This is one U-turn I'm very glad to see," Omar wrote on microblogging site twitter.com.

Omar was apparently reacting to media reports that Pakistan has agreed to talks between the national security advisors of the two countries on August 23.

"Hope NSA talks lay strong foundation," the working president of National Conference said.
