Srinagar: A day after Pakistan called off NSA level talks, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on Sunday expressed disappointment, stating he hopes both the nations will re-engage in meaningful dialogue.
According to ANI, Mufti hopes that break in talks would be temporary and the thaw achieved between India and Pakistan at Ufa will not be allowed to go waste.
He also believes that the two neighbours will re-engage soon in meaningful dialogue and steps taken by Indian government to improve impediments in normalisation of relations will be reciprocated by Islamabad.
However, his politcal opponent and former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah blamed him for the cancellation of talks.
“After playing his part in ensuring the cancellation it's a bit rich coming from him,” tweeted Omar.
