Hurriyat chief Mirwaiz to visit China: Report
New Delhi, Nov 20: Hurriyat Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq is planning to visit China to give them his perspective on Kashmir, a media report said.

"Yes, I will visit China soon. I have been invited by a Chinese NGO to talk about Muslim issues. It is basically a Muslim NGO," Farooq has been quoted as saying by The Indian Express.

Farooq is likely to meet diplomats and administrators in Beijing after his return from Islamabad, sources said.

According to Hurriyat sources, China has been trying to build a rapport with the Hurriyat chairman through some NGOs for the past two months.

China's invitation to Mirwaiz comes when relations between China and India are strained following Beijing's criticism of the Dalai Lama's visit to Tawang.
