Mehbooba Mufti praises Saudi Crown Prince; here’s what she tweets

Srinagar: Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti welcomed the joint statement by India and Saudi on creating conditions conducive for talks between Pakistan and India. She tweeted ‘Amid the din & clamour for war, India – Saudi joint statement on creating conditions conducive for talks btw Pak & Ind is a welcome step. Message for war mongers is loud & clear. Also, by promising investment in both nations, MBS surely knows the art of keeping everyone happy.’

According to sources, both the former chief ministers of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah said their stand on holding dialogue with Pakistan has been vindicated by the India-Saudi joint statement issued after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meeting with oil-rich kingdom’s Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman.

Welcoming the dialogue, National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said he was glad to see that Modi government has acknowledged that dialogue was the only way forward.
