Separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has reached the Pakistan High Commission here in New Delhi to meet Pakistani High Commissioner Abdul Basit.

The chairman of the Hurriyat Conference, Geelani, along with other leaders, was invited by the Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit, which led to India cancelling the upcoming Foreign Secretary level talks in Islamabad.

Geelani termed the talks being called by India as "childish". He said, "The decision of the Government of India is childish, doesn't hold importance, they shouldn't have done this. We have been visiting Pakistan Embassy several times to hold talks, the decision to cancel foreign secretary-level talks is undemocratic."ANI)
