Srinagar:Responding to Farooq Abdullah’s remarks, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said that the situation in Kashmir Valley would be same as Syria and Afghanistan if America starts intervening.

“China, America should mind their own business, we all know what is the situation of the countries wherever they intervened be it Afghanistan, Syria or Iraq,” Mehbooba said adding that only bilateral talks between India and Pakistan can solve the Kashmir issue.

“As Vajpayeeji said in the Lahore declaration, India and Pakistan should hold talks to resolve Kashmir issue,” she said.

Abdullah had earlier suggested that third party countries like China and the US should mediate in the Kashmir issue.

“For how long are you going to wait? Sometimes, you have to pull the bull by its horns. The way is to have a dialogue. India has so many friends all across the world and can ask them to act as a mediator. US President Trump himself said that he wants to settle Kashmir problem. China also said that it wants to mediate in Kashmir. Somebody has to be approached,” Abdullah said.
