Separatists demand "trilateral talks" with Pak High Commissioner
Shabir Shah, founder and president of the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) today discussed the possibility of "trilateral talks" between India, Pakistan and representatives of Jammu and Kashmir in his meeting with the Pakistani High Commissioner.
"Bilateral talks between India and Pakistan can be on issues like water and nuclear energy but till the topic of Kashmir is not addressed, these talks will continue to fail. However, we welcome the talks, will promote and lead to friendship of the two countries," said Shah.
"We however feel that the talks should be trilateral, with India, Pakistan and representatives of Kashmir at the table. If the Modi government really wants to leave a mark on India and the world, they should accept that Kashmir is an issue and give Kashmiris the right that they deserve," he added.
