Geelani says not against Indo-Pak talks
Srinagar: Hardline Hurriyat leader Syed
Ali Shah Geelani on Thursday said he was not against talks between
India and Pakistan but the dialogue process will not resolve
Kashmir issue unless the Centre accepts the "hard realities".
"We are not against talks.... Talks are one of the
ways to find solutions but until India does not accept the
hard realities about Jammu and Kashmir, no solution can be
found," Geelani told reporters in reply to a question about
the Foriegn Secretary talks between India and Pakistan.
He said this is an inference based on experiences of the past dialogue processes.
"Until India does not accept the disputed nature of
Jammu and Kashmir in clear terms, until what (Union Home
Minister) Chidambaram sahab himself said that Kashmir problem
is about broken promises... until the promises are not
fulfilled, dialogue process will have no result," he said.
