Muzaffarabad: All Jammu Kashmir Muslim Conference Muzaffarabad City President, Syed Khalid Gilani has said that the proposal of Muzaffarabad- Srinagar bus service should not be conditionalised with passport visa. Addressing city office bearers of Muslim Conference he endorsed the proposal vis-à-vis resumption of Muzaffarabad-Srinagar bus service saying it would provide an opportunity to the Kashmiris living on both sides of Line of Control to meet each other. 'We welcome Indian proposal about bus-service but it should be launched under the supervision of United Nations without conditionalising it with passport visa,' he added . Muslim Conference leader said Kashmiris living on both sides of Line of Control were separated from many years and resumption of Muzaffarabad-Srinagar bus service would be a positive step towards right direction. He called upon India and Pakistan to resolve their all disputes through talks in order to establish lasting peace in the region. He said Indian government should take steps to prove its sincerity towards solution of disputes particularly the core issue of Kashmir.
