ERDOGAN MEETS MODI TODAY; WANTS ‘MULTILATERAL’ KASHMIR TALKS
Visiting Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called for a “multilateral dialogue” to resolve the Kashmir issue. He also favoured Pakistan’s entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group, along with India, saying New Delhi should have no objection to it.
Erdogan arrived in the national capital on Sunday evening ahead of talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, PTI reported.
“We should not allow more casualties to occur (in Kashmir). By having a multilateral dialogue, (in which) we can be involved, we can seek ways to settle the issue once and for all,” he told WION news channel
The Turkish leader said that it is in the interest of India and Pakistan that they should resolve this issue and not leave it for the future generations. “All around the world, there is no better option than keeping the channel of dialogue open. If we contribute towards global peace, we can get a very positive result,” he said.
Erdogan said India and Pakistan were both friends of Turkey and he wanted to help strengthen the dialogue process among the stakeholders for resolving the Kashmir issue.
