Hurriyat skips Pakistan conference on Kashmir
August 07, 2008 19:50 IST
'It is unfortunate that the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has decided not to attend the conference. So it will not be completely representative of all sections of opinion,' Omar said in his blog.
The conference, organised by the Kashmir Institute of International Relations in Islamabad [Images] from Thursday, aims to build consensus among the Kashmiri leaders from across the Line of Control [Images] for a just and durable solution to the Kashmir imbroglio and evolve a solution acceptable to all.
The KIIR is headed by speaker of the assembly of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, Shah Ghulam [Images] Qadir.
'More on the conference after I get back from here in a few days. I will post once I am back from Pakistan at the end of the week,' Omar wrote.
Besides Omar, the organisers have invited Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti and Jammu and Kashmir secretary of Communist Party India-Marxist M Y Tarigami to the conference.
