Omar welcomes Kashmir remark

Omar, who was the only Chief Minister invited to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s private dinner on Sunday night in honour of Obama, said the President’s statement that the US cannot impose a solution was a “telling indicator” that for resolving the vexed issue of
Kashmir, India and Pakistan will have to find a solution that is acceptable to the majority of people of J and K.

“Perhaps the time has come for both Pakistan and separatists to look inwards for a solution rather than expect the US to do their jobs for them,” Omar said when asked for his comments on Obama’s remarks after summit talks with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

“His statement that the US cannot impose a solution is a telling indicator that for resolving the vexed issue of Kashmir, the only parties are India and Pakistan and that they have to find a solution that is acceptable to the majority of people of the state,” the Chief Minister said.
