Srinagar, Oct 21 (ANI): Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said that result-oriented dialogue is the only way for bringing peace and tranquillity in the State.

Addressing a ceremony on the annual police Martyrs day here, Abdullah said that lessons have been learnt from the previous failed rounds of talks and thus this time the talks would lead to a logical conclusion.

"We know that we have been victims of guns since last 20-22 years. But not even a single inch of land has been transferred on either side. It would be better for all us to understand and decide that talks are the only way to reach a solution for all issues," said Abdullah.bdullah also said that India-Pakistan talks, stalled after last year's Mumbai attack, should be restored.

"We want that talks between India and Pakistan don't break. The dialogue process should continue. As I already said that if we really want to get rid of guns and if we really want peace and tranquil environment in the state, it is possible only through talks," said Abdullah.

Earlier, Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram had said that the Central Government was open to peace talks on Kashmir. (ANI)
