He said Pakistan recognized Turkey 's legitimate security concerns in the region and stressed that a political solution to the Syrian conflict be reached at the earliest, taking into account concerns of all regional stakeholders.

Dr Faisal said as Indian atrocities in Occupied Kashmir continued, Pakistan was making efforts to highlight the issue on every international avenue and forum.
