Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti rejected the idea of seeking the help of the United States and China to solve the Kashmir issue. Mehbooba Mufti rejected the suggestion of former CM Farooq Abdullah, saying that American intervention would be particularly disastrous. “Look at the places America has interfered in, be it Afghanistan, Syria, or Iraq. We have the Lahore Declaration and the Shimla Agreement with us. When we have to resolve the issue together (India and Pakistan), why do we need any third party?” she said.
