In a statement issued, Hurriyat said, “the agreement by India and Pakistan to adhere to the cease fire on the LOC and the subsequent statements and actions by them thereafter , indicate a positive shift in the relations between the two neighbours. This is being observed with anticipation by the people of J&K who are deeply affected by the state of the relations between the two neighbours as they are for past seven decades striving for a resolution to the Kashmir conflict.”
APHC said that it greatly welcomes the shift towards good neighbourly relations between the two countries and sees it as is the first step in the direction of a meaningful dialogue for the peaceful resolution of the Kashmir conflict.

“APHC believes that unless on the ground in Kashmir an atmosphere free of fear, repression and human rights violations is not permitted , efforts at good neighbourly relations will not bear fruit,” Hurriyat said, adding that for change on ground all political prisoners and youth in jails and under house detention should be released.
Hurriyat said that the random arrests and slapping of PSA on youth and policy of intimidation and harassment through agencies should be ended. Deaths and destruction during encounters which is deeply disturbing , should be immediately stopped.
APHC said it always was and is ready to extend full support to all initiatives between the two countries that aim at bringing peace and prosperity to all the people of the subcontinent.
