Omar Abdullah: Talks Fine With Taliban, Why Not Kashmir Stakeholders

Jammu: Omar Abdullah National Conference leader has raised a question to Centre participation in a dialogue on Afghanistan in the presence of Taliban representatives while holding no talks with stakeholders in Jammu and Kashmir.

The National Conference tweeted that “ If non-official participation in a dialogue that includes the Taliban is acceptable to the Modi government why not a “ non-official” dialogue with non-mainstream stakeholders in J&K? Why not a non-official dialogue centered around J&K’s eroded autonomy & its restoration?”

Last Week, the Russian Foreign Ministry had said that “ It would participate in the dialogue hosted by Russia at a non-official level in Moscow. The Moscow format meeting on Afghanistan will be held on November 9 and representatives of the Afghan Taliban radical movement will take part in it”

Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar has said “ We are aware that the Russian Federation is hosting a meeting in Moscow on 9 November on Afghanistan. Our participation at the meeting will be at the non-official level” He further added that all efforts and reconciliation in Afghanistan that will preserve unity and plurality, and bring security, stability, and prosperity to the country.
