Srinagar: The moderate faction of Hurriyat Conference on Thursday called for de-escalation of tension between India and Pakistan saying that any carelessness by either side would prove detrimental to the interests of both and especially for Kashmir.
"Indo-Pak tension is not in the interest of South Asia. Both India and Pakistan are nuclear powers and thus the responsibility falls on them to change their thinking and actions to save the current situation from reaching a dangerous point," Hurriyat Conference said in a statement after an executive body meeting at its headquarters here.
The meeting, chaired by Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, the leader of Hurriyat Conference, expressed serious concern over continuing ceasefire violations along the border between India and Pakistan.
"Both countries should protect the ceasefire agreement. Otherwise, any carelessness on their part would prove detrimental for both nations and Kashmir," Hurriyat said.
Stressing on the need for the creation of a conducive atmosphere for solution of pending issues between the two countries, Hurriyat said it would write to the heads of both countries on the matter.
"In view of the changing scenario at the global level, the solution of issues through peaceful means has become inevitable," Hurriyat said.
