Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan strongly raises Kashmir issue in UN General Assembly
UNITED NATIONS – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reiterated his consistent and clear position on the Kashmir issue, and called for settlement under the United Nations (UN) resolutions.
Addressing the 76th session of the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, Erdogan said “we maintain stand in favor of solving the ongoing problem in Kashmir for 74 years through dialogue between the parties and within the framework of relevant United Nations resolutions”.
However, the 67-year-old’s speech this year was milder as compared to the previous speeches in which he termed the Kashmir dispute as a firing issue.
The support of the Kashmir cause has evoked strong protests from neighboring India, which claims it an ‘internal matter’.
