He announced the decision after a meeting of his outfit to discuss the invitation of Pakistan High Commission. Malik refused to give any reason for skipping the reception when asked why he himself was not going.

While Malik will be skipping the reception, leaders of other separatist groups would be attending the event and meet Aziz who is coming to India for talks with his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval. The JKLF chief said people of Kashmir have full faith in the fact that only talks and negotiations can resolve the disputes and issues.

"But for that, parties engaged in the process should have magnanimity, seriousness and strong will to resolve issues. ...If India and Pakistan want to resolve issues and are serious to resolve Kashmir dispute, they should accept the ownership and prime party status of people of Jammu Kashmir and include them on the negotiation table," he added.
