NEW YORK: Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called for the resolution of the long-standing Kashmir conflict between Pakistan and India by initiating a process of dialogue on the grounds of justice and equality.

In his address at the UN General Assembly in New York, Erdogan harshly criticised the world community for their failure to address Kashmir dispute, which, he said, has been awaiting resolution for the past 72 years.

The Turkish President stated that South Asian region’s stability and prosperity cannot be separated from the Kashmir issue.

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

“Despite the [United Nations Security Council] resolutions adopted, Kashmir is still besieged and eight million people are blockaded in Kashmir,” he said.

“The invasions, conflicts and terrorist activities for almost four decades in Afghanistan have led to instability in the region,” Mr Erdogan highlighted.

Prime Minister Imran Khan thanked the Turkish leader for raising Kashmir issue in United Nations and calling out for its resolution.

“I thank Turkey’s President Erdogan for raising the issue of IOJK in the UN General Assembly & calling for a solution to this long-standing dispute. Referring to the siege of IOJK, he pointed out that despite UN resolutions, 8 million people are stuck in IOJK,” tweeted Imran Khan.
