"So, the matter is that cross-border terrorism in our region emanating from a particular source is threatening peace and stability not only in India but other neighbours", MEA spokesperson Gopal Baglay Thursday said.

"We are ready to have a dialogue with Pakistan, among other issues, but in a bilateral framework".

The Foreign Office Spokesperson said that the Council expressed its support to the widespread indigenous movement of the people of Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir for their promised right to self-determination and observed that the just struggle of Kashmiris can not be equated with terrorism.

The Chinese spokesperson on Wednesday in reply to a question had talked about instability in Kashmir and its impact in the entire region and offered to play a constructive role to improve relations between India and Pakistan.

Baglay also hit out at the Pakistan government for "reading" from Lashkar-e-Taiba's terror script in glorifying Hizbul militant Burhan Wani, who was killed by security forces in July previous year.

President Masood Khan said to make the quest for peace in South Asia meaningful, India should end human rights violations in Kashmir, deescalate its frequent and hostile fire across the Line of Control, free political prisoners, and restore basic liberties and fundamental freedoms of the Kashmiri people.

The leaders said India and its stooges should know that Kashmiris are committed to take the sacred mission of their martyrs to its logical conclusion. We have embassies in both countries.

He also referred to Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar's remarks at an event in Singapore on the issue.

The Hurriyat chairman said it is unfortunate that the Government of India is continuously refusing to accept the ground reality in Kashmir and engage with it not only as a political problem but as a humanitarian issue of more than ten million people.

A complete strike will be observed across the occupied territory as part of a call for a week-long protest which has been directed by the joint Huriryet leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.
