Kashmir issue an internal matter: Khurshid
Srinagar: Asserting that Kashmir problem is an internal issue of India, the External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid on Friday said there is a mechanism within the country to address all issues and outside forces need not meddle in them.
“There is no need for any outsider to point fingers at us on what we have to do or if we have done something wrong. It is an issue within the family.
“We may have discussions and altercations within the family in our home and say that justice has not been done with us. But this is an internal issue and we have mechanism of discussions and talks through which we can comfortably solve every issue, and we will do that,” Mr. Khurshid said addressing party workers at the PCC headquarters in Srinagar.
The External Affairs minister said the Centre is aware of its responsibilities when it comes to people’s aspirations.
“We fully know and understand our responsibilities. The aspirations and expectations of our own people, our brothers and sisters, their dreams, we know how to respect them.
Expressing serious concern over the ongoing protests in Andhra Pradesh, following the nod for the creation of a separate Telangana State, the Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D Raja said that the Centre must address the genuine concerns of the people and assure them that their interests will be duly protected.
