SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah has hailed the statement of UN General Secretary Kofi Annan that the Lahore ageement and not the resolution of the world body should be the basis to resolve the Kashmir problem. "I congratulate Annan for his bold and pragmatic statement and I am hopeful that Pakistan would now understand the reality," Abdullah said speaking to reporters at a function here on Thursday. He said he had projected India's point of view on Kashmir when he met with leaders of Muslim countries during his recent Haj pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia. (PTI)
