Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit today met Kashmir separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani and briefed him about the issues discussed between India and Pakistan during Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar's visit to Islamabad. 

The two also discussed various developments in Jammu and Kashmir, where a political row has erupted over the release of separatist Masarat Alam, during the meeting which lasted for more than half an hour. 

According to sources, Basit apprised Geelani on the issues discussed during the visit of Jaishankar last week, seven months after India had cancelled the Indo-Pak dialogue over the Pakistan High Commissioner's consultations with Kashmiri separatists. 

With BJP-PDP government in Jammu & Kashmir, they discussed the political developments in the state. 

Basit also invited him for the Pakistan Day on March 23. 

After the meeting, Geelani said he told Basit that Kashmir was the main issue and if it was resolved, the other issues will also be resolved easily.
