Objection to Qureshi-Mirwaiz conversation lowest point of Delhi’s foreign policy

Party president, Mehbooba Mufti lamented the “politicizing” of the phone conversation between Pakistan foreign minister and a top Hurriyat leader, calling the row as the lowest unsuccessful point in foreign policy of India. 

Earlier the party president tweeted, “Terming a phone call between Pakistani FM & Mirwaiz Umar Farooq sahab as anti-India has reduced ties to an unbelievable nadir.” 

Ms Mehbooba Mufti said that it was during the NDA rule under former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee that meetings between Hurriyat leadership and Pakistani officials were facilitated besides allowing separatist to visit Pakistan.

She added: “A foreign policy dictated by the compulsions of electoral politics is shockingly pathetic.”
