Okay if separatists are invited by Pak

Interacting with IANS on the sidelines of an Iftar party hosted by Congress president Sonia Gandhi here, Abdullah said the earlier instance of cancelling talks with Pakistan because separatists were invited to the Pakistan National Day function "was an instance of government reacting very poorly".

"The earlier instance of cancelling talks because they (separatists) were invited for a cup of tea was an instance of government reacting very poorly," Omar said.

"This is normal and how it should be," he added.

Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit told IANS earlier in the day there was "nothing unusual about our invite to Hurriyat leaders".
