New Delhi :  

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said that there should not be third-party mediation in India-Pakistan relationships.

"What is the situation in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq today? Does Farooq sahab wants same thing to happen to us?," said Mufti.

"America and China should handle their own affairs, we should talk with each other," Mufti told.               

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and NDA’s policies have burnt Kashmir. He stressed that instead of talks with Pakistan and China, there should be discussions on Kashmir.

"I have been telling for a long time now that Narendra Modi and NDA’s policies have burnt Kashmir. Whatever being said to Pakistan and China is not needed, instead there should be discussions on Kashmir. Kashmir is India and India is Kashmir," said Rahul Gandhi.

Rahul said that Kashmir issue is our internal matter and no one has to do anything about it.

Former J&K Chief Minister and National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah suggested the Indian government to take help of friendly countries in talks with Pakistan to resolve cross-border firing.

The statement came a day after India warned the neighbouring country to face strong retaliation if firing and shelling does not stop in the border areas.
