Resolving Kashmir will end terrorism: Farooq Abdullah

Srinagar, Oct 14 (IANS) India and Pakistan must talk and solve the Kashmir issue to end terrorism in the region, former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah said, speaking for the first time since the ongoing unrest erupted in the Kashmir Valley.

“Both countries must sit and have talks on Kashmir. That is the only solution to end terrorism, otherwise it will keep on escalating,” Abdullah told reporters after a meeting of opposition parties here.

“All of us are looking for the way forward and not looking back at what happened,” he said, adding he was “always in favour of peace”.

The National Conference President said he was concerned about the turmoil in the Kashmir Valley that has left over 90 people dead and thousands injured since the July 8 killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.

The meeting of opposition parties discussed the Kashmir situation and the way the state and central governments were dealing with it.

Abdullah said the situation demanded that “a solution needs to be found” to the vexed Kashmir issue.
