Turkey Urges India To End Curbs In Kashmir; Resolve Dispute Through Peaceful Means
GENEVA, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 23rd Feb, 2021 ) :Turkey on Monday raised the Kashmir issue at the United Nations Human Rights Council, with a call for resolving the decades-old dispute on the basis of UN resolutions and the "legitimate" expectations of Kashmiri people who are struggling for their right of self-determination.
"We wish for the resolution of the issue through peaceful means on the basis of the relevant United Nations resolutions and the legitimate expectations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir," the Turkish foreign minister added.
The Council on Monday began its month-long, 46th session, which is being held almost entirely remotely to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
"This has been the consistent policy of the Erdogan administration to sensitize the world opinion to help bring parties concerned together to resolve the Kashmir dispute for the sake of peace and security not only in Kashmir but in the region of South Asia," he said.
