J&K parties welcome U.S. mediation offer

Hurriyat wants an early resolution
The National Conference (NC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the separatist Hurriyat on Tuesday welcomed U.S. President Donald Trump’s push for dialogue between India and Pakistan on the Kashmir issue. “It is indeed a welcome step. Any mediation in conflict resolution is not a new approach; it is one of the traditional means of diplomacy that affords the two conflict-ridden countries a suitable solution,” National Conference president Farooq Abdullah said. Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti termed the statement a “huge policy shift”. “Being the most affected party, the people of Kashmir want an early resolution. I have been urging for dialogue at all levels. Every effort, pushing India and Pakistan in that direction is welcome by the people of J&K,” said Hurriyat chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
