Singh, however, made it clear that so far there has been no indication from the Hurriyat that it was ready for peace talks with the government.
"I have already said that we are ready for dialogue with all stakeholders in Kashmir. If Hurriyat comes forward for talks, we don't mind talking to them. Whoever wants to talk with us, we are ready for talks," he told a TV channel.
On whether there was any indication from the separatists leadership for peace dialogue with the government, Singh said, "There has been no indication so far."
The government's special representative Dineshwar Sharma is holding talks with a cross section of people in Jammu and Kashmir, the Home Minister said.
Singh's comments came days after the government had announced suspension of operations against the terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir during the holy month of Ramzan that began on May 17.
