The National Conference (NC) leader said India has so many allies across the globe, which can be approached for settling the Kashmir issue and act as a mediator between India and Pakistan, reported Hindustan Times.

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah on Friday asked India to approach third parties, such as the US and China, to mediate in the Kashmir issue.

The National Conference (NC) leader said India has so many allies across the globe, which can be approached for settling the Kashmir issue and act as a mediator between India and Pakistan, reported Hindustan Times.

“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. They 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.

“If India is ready to talk to China and does not want to get into war, then they can talk to Pakistan also,” he added.

Abdullah also expressed concern over the tension in the Valley.

“If the youth of tomorrow are targeted today, how will they run the nation? I would like to urge the government to expose the perpetrators,” he said.

“We are being sandwiched. People die every day. The situation is worse in the Valley,” he added.
