Srinagar: Moderate Hurriyat Conference on Thursday said it would attend the Eid Milan at Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi on July 21 and utilise the occasion to stress that India and Pakistan cannot resolve their "secondary issues" without including Kashmir in the dialogue process.

Hurriyat chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and senior executive member Masroor Abbas Ansari will attend the Eid Milan party being hosted by Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit, its spokesman said.

 

"Although Hurriyat Conference supports the dialogue process between India and Pakistan, the two countries cannot resolve their secondary issues without including Kashmir in the dialogue process.

"We will present this stand clearly during our visit (to Pakistan High Commission)," the spokesman said after a meeting chaired by chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq here.

The spokesman said Hurriyat's decision to attend the event was not a political reaction but based on its decided policy and principles for resolution of the Kashmir issue.

Hardline Hurriyat Conference has decided to boycott the event to protest non-inclusion of Kashmir in the talks that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif held in Ufa in Russia last week.
