Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday expressed hope that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be able to resolve the issue of stapled visa with Chinese authorities during his ongoing visit to the neighbouring nation.
“I hope @PMOIndia is able to resolve the ‘stapled visa’ issue so that I can also visit the Terracotta Army and Great Wall of China,” Omar wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Omar was referring the stapled visa issued by China for residents of Jammu and Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh. His comment came soon after Modi visited the Terracota Army heritage site in China.
The National Conference working president also commented on a photograph of Modi waving at the crowd during his China visit.
“Waving at the crowd would be a better caption because ‘interaction’ actually requires people to interact,” Omar wrote.
