Omar slams Pak National Assembly resolution on ceasefire

August 14, 2013 13:56 IST

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has ridiculed the resolution of Pakistan's National Assembly on ceasefire violations along the Line of Control, saying conflicting signals emanating from the neighbouring country were helping the hawks on both sides.

"Talk about the pot calling the kettle black -- they violate the ceasefire, kill and behead our soldiers and then pass a resolution blaming us," Omar wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Pakistan's National Assembly on Tuesday passed a resolution accusing Indian troops of "unprovoked aggression" on the LoC and extending support to the "struggle" of the Kashmiri people.

Omar said, "The conflicting signals coming out of Islamabad are exactly what the hawks on both sides are looking for."
