Millennium Post - - Nation - OUR COR­RE­SPON­DENT

SRI­NA­GAR: Na­tional Con­fer­ence leader Omar Ab­dul­lah has ques­tioned the Cen­tre’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in a di­a­logue on Afghanistan in the pres­ence of Tal­iban rep­re­sen­ta­tives while hold­ing no talks with stake­hold­ers in Jammu and Kash­mir.

“If ‘non-of­fi­cial’ par­tic­i­pa­tion in a di­a­logue that in­cludes the tal­iban is ac­cept­able to the Modi gov­ern­ment why not a non-of­fi­cial di­a­logue with non-main­stream stake hold­ers in J&K? Why not a non-of­fi­cial di­a­logue cen­tered around J&K’S eroded au­ton­omy & its restora­tion?” he tweeted Thurs­day night. The Moscow-for­mat meet­ing on Afghanistan will be held on No­vem­ber 9 and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Afghan Tal­iban rad­i­cal move­ment will take part in it, the Rus­sian For­eign Min­istry had said last week.
