‘Not against negotiations with India,’ says Hizbul Mujahideen commander Riyaz Naikoo

The Hizbul Mujahideen is not against negotiations with the Indian government, its Commander Riyaz Naikoo told Al Jazeera in an interview on Thursday. The Hizbul Mujahideen has been recognised as a terrorist organisation by India. In August 2017, the United States designated the Kashmiri militant outfit as a foreign terrorist organisation and issued sanctions against it.
