Was India ‘made to talk Kashmir’, asks Omar Abdullah

New Delhi, Dec 7 : Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Monday, while raising questions on the meeting of National Security Advisors of India and Pakistan, asked if India was “made to talk Kashmir” as there was no mention of ‘K’ word when the prime ministers of the two countries had met at Ufa earlier this year.

After the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) made a statement that “Pakistan has been ‘made to talk terror’ which they had refused so far”, Abdullah tweeted: “If Pakistan was ‘made to talk terror’ was India also ‘made to talk Kashmir’ since Jammu and Kashmir had found no mention in Ufa.”

The NSAs of India and Pakistan met in Bangkok on Sunday and “agreed to carry forward the constructive engagement”.

Earlier, a NSA-level meeting was called off in August after Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit invited Hurriyat Conference leaders for a reception ahead of the talks
