Attacks aimed at derailing Indo-Pak talks: Omar Abdullah

Militants in army fatigues this morning stormed a police station and an army camp in Jammu region.

Condemning the ‘dastardly’ twin terror attacks,Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday said they are aimed at derailing talks between Prime Minister Mahmohan Singh and his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif.

“Given our history and given the timing as well as location of the attacks,one thing is obvious that the aim of these terrorists is to derail the proposed dialogue between the Prime Minister of India and Prime Minister of Pakistan,” he told reporters here.

Omar said the forces inimical to interests of Jammu and Kashmir have always tried to derail the peace process between India and Pakistan and the terror strikes were a step in that direction.

“These (attackers) are forces that have always been inimical to the interests of Jammu and Kashmir …that have always tried to derail any peace process that is sought to be initiated. They have sought to keep the turmoil in the state on. This is another step in that direction,” he said.
