US diplomats snub separatists, avoid meeting them

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Aug 8: In an apparent snub to Kashmiri separatists, Ambassador of United States Kenneth Juster, who recently visited the Valley, did not meet any of the separatist leaders and preferred to call on the mainstream leaders, including the vice-president of National Conference Omar Abdullah.
Separatists, who leave no stone unturned to hoodwink the people by claiming that entire world is watching the developments in Kashmir, were left red faced by the indifference shown by the top American diplomat, who was accompanied by Alexi Lefevre, Political Officer and Sukesh, Senior Political Specialist.
They called on Governor N N Vohra in Srinagar and discussed various issues with him. "American diplomats ignoring separatists is a message to them that United States of America is least interested in them and their politics," said an analyst.
He said with each passing day it's becoming clear that international community doesn't recognize Kashmir as a problem and has acknowledged the fact that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India. "The so-called JKLF chief Yasin Malik, who has been instrumental in orchestrating street protests and shutdowns in Kashmir, always used to boast that he enjoys the support of United States of America but American diplomats not meeting him has proved that he was creating a wrong notion," said a Kashmir watcher.
He said that since the day President Donald Trump has taken over the reins of the United States he has made it clear that America won't support the terrorists and the people who preach violence. "In the past when foreign diplomats used to visit Kashmir, separatists used to wait for a chance to go and meet them. During the past few years trend has changed. Now foreign dignitaries just avoid them as they have realized that they (separatists) don't represent anyone. They meet the people who are elected representatives and have a say in Kashmir politics," the Kashmir watcher added.
A politician said that the separatists should see the writing on the wall and stop feeding lies to people for running their shops. "They (separatists) have been rejected by one and all. They have become irrelevant as no one is ready to accept that despite being Indian citizens they are advocating Pakistan's cause and are preaching hate, sedition and separatism," he said.
The politician said that it's high time for people of Kashmir to realize that no one would intervene and their destiny lies with India. "It's only a handful of people who want to keep the pot boiling for their own vested interests and Kashmiris should reject them," he added.
