No talks with Delhi unless it accepts Kashmir as core issue: Geelani

Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Monday said that unless New Delhi doesn’t accept the amalgam’s five points, there will is no chance of talks.
“By sending feelers that they are willing to start dialogue process with separatists, New Delhi is trying to create confusion. There is no question of entering into any kind of dialogue process with New Delhi unless it accepts Hurriyat’s five demands,” Geelani said.
“We haven’t received any invitation nor are we in contact with anyone. We aren’t involved in any type of track II. I’m in Delhi to make people aware about the Kashmir issue,” he added.
He reiterated that there will be no talks within Indian constitution.
The Hurriyat (G) Chairman said that only tripartite talks were acceptable to them in which India, Pakistan and Kashmiris discuss core issue of Kashmir.
“Kashmiris have given a lot of sacrifices and there won’t be any compromise with sacrifices. If anybody will make compromise with sacrifices nation will never forgive him,” he added.
On Pakistan invitation, Geelani said, “Once I reach Srinagar, we will call shura meeting of Tahreek-e-Hurriyat and Hurriyat (G) where it will be decided whether to accept the invitation or not. No decision can be taken at individual level,” he said.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat (M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said that they will not enter into any dialogue till India, Pakistan and Kashmiris sit together to find an amicable solution of the vexed Kashmir issue.
He said he has no information about PMO inviting the Hurriyat for talks.
