Will continue to support India-Pak dialogue: Omar
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday said he will continue to support dialogue between India and Pakistan for resolution of outstanding issues between the two countries.
"We have always been supporting dialogue and will always do that," Omar told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.
Responding to a question, Omar said the decision about holding dialogue with Pakistan was taken at the highest level in the country.
"The decision on whether to hold talks or not is not ours (at state level). This decision is taken at the Centre at the highest level. Our Prime Minister will decide whether there should be talks or not and on what issues should there be dialogue," he said.
Omar was asked to comment on a reported statement of Director General of Police Ashok Prasad in which the top cop had said there was no point in talking to Pakistan as the neighbouring country continued to support militancy in the state.
"I have not come across any such statement of the DGP," the Chief Minister said.
