ISLAMABAD - Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has won hearts of Pakistanis with his strong statement over Kashmir cause.
He has assured Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi of his country's support in the bid to find a peaceful solution to the Kashmir issue.
Cavusoglu, who arrived in Islamabad on Thursday for high-level discussions with Pakistani officials, held a meeting with FM Qureshi at the Foreign Office today, following which the two addressed a joint press conference.
FM Qureshi said that Turkey has agreed to support Pakistan's bid for a peaceful resolution of the Kashmir issue at the UN.
"At the United Nations conference there will be a separate conference on Kashmir on the side. It happens every year but it is different this time because a new UN report has come out which sheds light on the India-occupied Kashmir.
