Jammu: The report of the Centre's interlocutors on Kashmir would be made public after Cabinet Committee of Security (CCS) considers it, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said on Tuesday.

"Interlocutors' report, As I said in Delhi, will be made public after the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) has considered the matter", Chidambaram told reporters here today and refused to take further questions on the issue.

Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has pitched for making the report public, holding debate on it and thereafter implementing the recommendations.

"We desire that the interlocutors' report should be made public document and talks should be held on it. After that, its recommendations should be implemented", Omar had told reporters here on Saturday last.

The three interlocutors on Jammu and Kashmir had submitted their report to Chidambaram in New Delhi on October 12, 2011, laying down a roadmap for the government to address all issues pertaining to the state.

The report was handed over to Chidambaram by the team comprising noted journalist Dilip Padgaonkar, former Information Commissioner MM Ansari and noted academician Radha Kumar.

The report has been submitted within the time-frame of one year given by the government to the interlocutors who were appointed after an all-party meeting held in 2010.
