Home Minister Rajnath Singh has once again opened the road for dialogue to solve the issues of Jammu and Kashmir. The Home minister said the government is “ready to talk to everyone” over the Kashmir issue, while asserting that terrorism in the Valley is “Pakistan-sponsored”.
After a meeting of the Central Zonal Council here, he told reporters, “I think the matter will be resolved. We are ready to talk to everyone. As far as terrorism is concerned, all security agencies are working in coordination.”
“Terrorism in Kashmir is Pakistan-sponsored,” he said.
Barely 24 hours after agreeing to the engagement, the government Friday called off a meeting between the foreign ministers of India and Pakistan in New York, citing the brutal killings of three policemen in Jammu and Kashmir and Islamabad releasing postage stamps “glorifying” Kashmiri militant Burhan Wani.
About the issues raised in the zonal council meeting, the home minister said out of 22 points, 20 have been resolved, adding in the last four years, in 12 meetings, 680 issues were discussed of which 428 were resolved.
