The Australian government will reconsider travel advisory to its citizens to visit Kashmir Valley.

This assurance was given by Australian Ambassador Patrick Suckling who called on chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed here, an official spokesman said here this evening.

Mr Sayeed during the meeting stressed the need to withdraw the travel advisory on J&K, which he said it is safe to travel as any other tourist destination in the world.

The Australian High Commissioner promised to review the travel advisory which will facilitate the visit of Australian businessmen and tourists to the state.

During the meeting, the Chief Minister discussed with Patrick Suckling the possibilities of partnership in key areas like Horticulture, Animal Husbandry, Skill Development, Higher Education and Tourism.

He also offered collaboration to the State in dairy, sheep rearing and vocational education in which Australia has set international benchmarks.

Earlier, Mr Suckling visited the University of Kashmir and discussed the possibilities of faculty and student exchange programmes with the Australian universities.

He also held detailed consultations with the Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCC&I) to boost business-to-business associations, particularly in the fabled handicraft sector.UNI BAS DJK AE VN1915
