Speaking after meeting Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Abdullah said that in a tense environment when official talks looked bleak, flag meetings could play a very crucial role in bringing peace.
“I have heard that commanders of both the countries have talked on the hotline. I welcome this development. It is good that a channel of communication has opened between the two countries,” he said. “This will only benefit the people.”
“Only those living on the border areas know what they have to go through every time the ceasefire is violated, Sadly, this time civilians were targeted deliberately,” he said.
