J&K: CPI(M) Wants Indo-Pak Talks Resumption


THROUGH a statement issued its secretary M Y Tarigami from Srinagar on February 11, the Jammu & Kashmir state unit of the CPI(M) has welcomed the agreement between India and Pakistan for resumption of the stalled dialogue process and urged upon the leadership of both the countries to re-initiate the process which unfortunately got derailed following the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.


The statement said the CPI(M) firmly believes that the dialogue is the only option to seek solutions to the outstanding problems including Kashmir. Terror can be defeated only if the peace process is strengthened. The people of Jammu and Kashmir, along with the people of the whole region, expect that the decision taken in the meeting of the foreign secretaries of the two countries at Thimphu would open new opportunities for reconciliation and peace in the region.
