Turkey's President raised the Kashmir issue: said in UNGA - no peace between India and Pakistan; India said - do not interfere in our internal matter
In the United Nations General Assembly i.e. UNGA, Turkey raised the issue of Kashmir in front of the world leaders. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan while talking about Kashmir said that there is still no peace between the two countries regarding Kashmir.
In the UNGA meeting being held in New York, Turkey sought a solution to the Kashmir problem. Erdogan said- It has been 75 years since India and Pakistan got independence but both countries have not been able to solve the Kashmir problem to date. This is unfortunate. I hope that happiness and prosperity will return to Kashmir.
Recently on 15 and 16 September, India and Turkey participated in the SCO Summit held in Uzbekistan. During this, both the countries had talked about cooperating with each other in different sectors.
Indian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Ravish Kumar replied to Turkey. He said- Turkey should not interfere in our internal matters. Kashmir is an integral part of India. Turkey should increase its understanding of this matter by checking facts on the Kashmir issue. Ravish said- Instead of the Kashmir issue, Turkey should talk about the terrorist activities of Pakistan.
This is not the first time that Turkey has spoken on the issue of Kashmir. Earlier in 2020, Erdogan compared the people of Kashmir in Pakistan to the people of Turkey. Erdogan had said- The people of Pakistan helped us at the time of Turkish independence. We have not forgotten this help of Pakistan and will never forget it. Just as Kanakkal (the seaside part of Turkey) was important to our country yesterday, Kashmir is important to us today. There is no difference between the two.
