'Neither a roadmap on Kashmir issue is introduced nor Kashmir is being divided,' he said talking to newsmen here. To a question he said Kashmiri people will not accept visa condition for Muzaffarabad-Srinagar bus service, as it is not in the interest of Kashmiris . In reply to another question he said Kashmir issue must be resolved in accordance with the wishes of Kashmiri people. 'Kashmir issue could not be resolved without the participation of Kashmiris in the talks process,' he remarked.
