Hurriyat's Geelani sends secret letter to Pakistan PM

New Delhi: A three-member delegation from the Hurriyat Conference belonging to the Syed Ali Shah Geelani faction met Pakistani envoy Abdul Basit here on Tuesday and handed over a confidential letter for Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

"We handed over Geelani sahab's letter for PM Sharif to the officials at the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi," Ayaz Akbar, spokesperson for the Hurriyat Conference, said in a statement on Wednesday.

Geelani's top aides -- Ayaz Akbar, Peer Saifullah and Altaf Ahmad -- met Basit at his office and stayed for more than an hour.

"The letter is confidential but highly important," Akbar told IANS.

"Officials at the high commission assured us that the letter will be dispatched to the Pakistan prime minister on Wednesday," Akbar said.

This was the first time Hurriyat members met the Pakistani envoy after the National Security Advisor (NSA)-level talks in New Delhi were called off by Pakistan.

Geelani was slated to have a one-on-one conversation with Pakistan's NSA Sartaj Aziz while the latter was here for the talks.
