Srinagar, Dec 6: National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Sunday welcomed what he said was the resumption of the dialogue process between India and Pakistan.
Referring to the meeting between Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Nawaz Sharif in Paris, the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister said: “Clearly, Paris was more than the officially termed ‘courtesy meeting’.
“Good to see India and Pakistan resume the dialogue process,” Abdullah said, commenting on the meeting on Sunday in Bangkok between the national security advisers of the two countries.
“Perhaps this is the way quiet progress will be made away from each other’s capitals and the glare of media driven expectations.
“Now the challenge is to make sure the Indo-Pakistan dialogue process is ring-fenced from incidents designed specifically to derail it,” he added.
