Need formal invite for dialogue: Geelani
Srinagar: Hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani on Thursday said his party would deliberate on the central government`s reported offer for a dialogue only after a formal invitation was received by him.
Geelani, who addressed a media conference at his uptown Hyderpora residence, was reacting to media reports which said the central government was likely to make an offer for an unconditional dialogue to Kashmiri separatist leaders.
"Once such an offer is made to us, our `Majlis-e-Shoura` (assembly of elders) would meet where a decision would be taken," Geelani said.
Geelani, however, parried questions about any preconditions for the dialogue with the centre.
