Srinagar, Publish Date: Sep 15 2018

The UN should resolve the Kashmir issue in a peaceful manner and Turkey supports Pakistan’s efforts to find a peaceful solution, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Friday as he held talks with his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi here.

During their talks, both sides agreed to enhance the bilateral economic and strategic cooperation.

Turkey supported the view that the Kashmir issue should be resolved by the UN in a peaceful manner, Cavusoglu said during a joint press conference with Qureshi here.

Qureshi said that Turkey supported Pakistan’s effort for a peaceful resolution of the Kashmir issue at the UN.

At the UN conference there will be a separate meeting 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 Kashmir, Qureshi said.
