Mehbboba hits out at Farooq, rules out third party intervention on Kashmir issue

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today lashed out at Former Chief Minster and parliamentarian Farooq Abdullah for suggesting third party intervention in Kashmir issue.

What is the situation in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq today? Does Farooq Sahab wants same thing to happen to us?” Mehbooba Mufti told reporters here.

She said that we need to solve the issue between ourselves.

“Let China and America do their own work, we have to resolve the issue between ourselves,” She added.

Farooq Abdullah yesterday had said that it is time India approaches a third party like China or the United States to referee the Kashmir conflict.

“For how long are you going to wait?” a New Delhi based news agency quoted the National Conference leader as saying.

“Sometimes, you have to pull the bull by its horns. The way is to have a dialogue.” He added that as India has many friends across the world, it can ask them to act as a mediator. “US President Trump himself said that he wants to settle Kashmir problem. China also said that it wants to mediate in Kashmir,” he was quoted by the news gathering agency.
