Hurriyat (G) chairman, Syed Ali Geelani Tuesday said Kashmir is an international issue and not an internal issue of India.

“First of all when they say Kashmir is an internal issue, it is against the reality. The issue of Jammu and Kashmir is an international issue and it should be solved,” Geelani, who reached New Delhi to meet Pakistan’s high commissioner, told reporters at the airport.

“It is unfortunate that the Indian government has cancelled the (foreign secretary-level) talks,” he said.

Geelani is scheduled to meet Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit. Chairman of other faction of Hurriyat Conference, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq is also in New Delhi to meet Abdul Basit.

“As long as promises made to us are fulfilled, this issue will remain unsolved,” said Geelani.

He said India is not trying to resolve the issue but suppressing it.

“India does not want to resolve the Kashmir issue, it is using force to suppress it,” he said.
