SRINAGAR — Former Chief Minister and Lok Sabha member, Dr. Farooq Abdullah said on Wednesday that he hoped the new regime in Afghanistan respects human rights and maintains friendly relations with other countries.

Addressing the party workers at the Mausoleum of his father, late Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah, who died this day in 1982, Farooq said, “I hope the Taliban government in Afghanistan maintains friendly relations with all countries.
