Turkish PM Berates Int’l Community For Neglecting Kashmir Conflict


Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan addressed the UN General Assembly in New York on Tuesday, during which he highlighted the need for a solution through dialogue rather than war between Pakistan and India.

In his speech, Erdogan criticised the international community for their inattentiveness towards the discord in Kashmir, which has been awaiting solution for 72 years, he said.

PM Erdogan pressed that stability and prosperity of South Asia could not be separated from the Kashmir issue.

“Despite the resolutions adopted, [India-occupied] Kashmir is still besieged and eight million people are stuck in Kashmir,” said Erdogan.

“In order for the Kashmiri people to look at a safe future together with their Pakistani and Indian neighbors, it is imperative to solve the problem through dialogue and on the basis of justice and equity, but not through collision,” said Erdogan.

Erdogan also spoke about the trials and tribulations in Gaza and Palestine, in relevance to preventing the same thing from happening in Kashmir.

Since his address aired online, #OurVoiceErdogan has been trending on Twitter.

Pakistani nationals can also be seen using this tag in appreciation of a third party voicing their concerns, assuring them of Turkey’s alliance.

Prime Minister Imran Khan took to Twitter to thank President Erdogan for bringing up the issue in the Assembly.
