Geelani decides to participate in OIC meet in New York

Srinagar: Hardline Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani has decided to participate in the annual meeting of the foreign ministers of member states of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and Kashmir contact group to be held in New York from September 27.

“Geelani has decided to participate in the meeting and has started to fulfill the necessary formalities in this regard,” a Hurriyat spokesman said here.

He said the Hurriyat chairman has many times in the last 25 years got invitation from the OIC, but due to non-availability of travel documents could not participate.

“An important conference of foreign ministers of the Muslim countries is being held in New York and Geelani Sahab has been especially invited in that. While expressing his wish to participate in the scheduled conference, he said he will try his level best to represent the voices and concerns of the Kashmiris,” the spokesman said.

He said Geelani would make the world leaders aware about the “serious and grave situations of Kashmir” and would impress upon them to bat for the “resolution of the long pending Kashmir dispute according to its historical perspective”.
