Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi Tuesday telephoned Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and discussed with him Islamabad's efforts to highlight the Kashmir issue.

Qureshi's telephonic conversation with a separatist leader reflected the duplicity in Pakistani leadership's approach on ties with India, official sources said in New Delhi.

Such an attempt by Pakistan's foreign minister is a regressive step and is contrary to the overall perception which Pakistan leadership is trying to create, they said.

The Foreign Office in Islamabad said Qureshi spoke with Mirwaiz and discussed with him the efforts of Pakistan's government to highlight the Kashmir issue.

Qureshi also mentioned the June 2018 report issued by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and a report of the UK Parliament, the FO said in a statement.

He also emphasised that India should permit the visit of the Commission of Inquiry, as envisaged in both reports.
