Washington: Separatist Kashmiri groups protested near venue of the Nuclear Security Summit here which is being attended by leaders from more than 50 countries including Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Members of separatist Kashmiri groups held a demonstration in front of the Washington DC Convention Centre yesterday afternoon, seeking the world leaders' intervention to resolve the Kashmir issue.

"All those leaders attending the Nuclear Summit and those who are interested in the world peace are urged to persuade both India and Pakistan to help resolve the Kashmir dispute for the sake of international peace and security," said Ghulam Nabi Fai, secretary general, World Kashmir Awareness.

Fai has served two years' imprisonment in the US on the charges of working on behalf of Pakistan's ISI.
