As Turkey Concern about Kashmir Jaishankar Hits Back over Cyprus Issue

New York: A Day after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan raked up the issue of Kashmir at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), External Affairs Minister (EAM) S Jaishankar met his Turkish partner Mevlut Cavusoglu and held chats on Cyprus.

On the next day of the UNGA on Wednesday, Jaishankar held a colossal discussion with Cavusoglu which remembered talks for the Ukraine conflict, food security, and Cyprus.

The discussions come as the UN keeps on pushing to determine many years of strains in Cyprus between the Turkish Cypriot north and the Greek Cypriot south, whose communities have been parted starting around 1974.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday raked up the Kashmir issue during his address at the significant level UN General Assembly meeting and encouraged the foundation of a fair and long-lasting harmony and flourishing in Kashmir.

“India and Pakistan, after having established their sovereignty and independence 75 years ago, they still haven’t established peace and solidarity between one another. This is much unfortunate. We hope and pray that a fair and permanent peace and prosperity will be established in Kashmir,” Erdogan said at the General Discussion.

Erdogan’s comments come after he met Prime Minister Narendra Modi sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Summit in Samarkand.

The two chiefs exchanged views on local and worldwide advancements between the two nations.

“PM Narendra Modi held talks with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the sidelines of the SCO Summit in Samarkand. The two leaders discussed ways to deepen bilateral cooperation in diverse sectors,” PMO India tweeted.

Prior, PM Modi was hailed at the United Nations General Assembly for his message to Russian President Vladimir Putin over the Ukraine conflict, by the US and France at the UNGA meeting in New York.

France President Emmanuel Macron and US Public safety Counselor Jake Sullivan invited PM Modi’s assertion to Putin on Ukraine.
