She termed the decision as a positive development for restoring lasting peace in the South Asia.
In a statement, Mehooba said that the way Pakistani Premier has reciprocated gesture of his Indian counterpart is a clear indication that both the countries want to resume the highest level dialogue process which had been stalled since 2008
Mehooba reiterated that dialogue is the only way to solve all problems and peace between India and Pakistan is in the interest of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
Hailing decision of the Government of India to grant multi-entry visas of six-month validity to people from the Pakistan Administered Kashmir (PaK) visiting Jammu and Kashmir, PDP chief demanded this facilities should not be confined only to the divided families.
“Residents of both sides of Kashmir should be allowed to cross the LoC”, she demanded and stressed on the need of removing other impediments to ensure smooth flow of people and goods across the border. “The biggest impediment is not availability of communication between people of both sides,” she observed and asked the government to restore communication links between people of both sides of LoC.
