India and Pakistan must hold their dialogue on a neutral ground, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah said on Sunday after the collapse of the NSA-level talks.

“I think the way forward is they can’t talk in this country or in Pakistan. They have to find another third neutral country where they can talk,” the National Conference leader told the media.

“Otherwise I don’t see there is going to be ever any breakthrough between these two countries,” he added.

Islamabad on Saturday axed the talks between the Indian and Pakistani national security advisers after New Delhi strongly opposed to any meeting by the visiting Pakistani officials with Kashmiri separatists.

The former chief minister also said Pakistan needed to realise how terrorism was affecting it.

He said everybody was hoping that something better would come out of the NSA talks in New Delhi and subsequently bombings on the Kashmir border would stop.

“I think Pakistan does not realise that how terrorism is eating its own land.

“Every day they also have incidents where lots of people die. If they do not want to stop terrorism, India cannot help,” Abdullah added.
