Geelani hails release of prisoners by India, Pakistan
Hurriyat (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Wednesday hailed the goodwill gesture by India and Pakistan to release prisoners from their respective jails and called for use of such measures as permanent feature of relations between the two countries.
Thirteen Pakistani nationals, including four fishermen, were repatriated to Pakistan on Tuesday through the Attari-Wagah border.
Last month, Pakistan released 55 Indian fishermen and five civilians as a “goodwill gesture”.
“The mutual well-wishing (steps) in the month of holy Ramadhan should be a permanent feature of the bilateral relations of the two countries,” Geelani said in a statement.
