ISLAMABAD (92 news) - Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has expressed his deep appreciation for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for once again raising his voice in support of the rights of Kashmiri people during address to the UN General Assembly (UNGA). In a tweet on Wednesday, the prime minister said that Turkey’s unwavering support remains a source of strength for the Kashmiris in their legitimate struggle for self-determination. اقوام متحدہ کی جنرل اسمبلی سےاپنے خطاب میں ایک مرتبہ پھر اہلِ کشمیر کے حقوق کیلئےآواز بلند کرنےپر میں صدر اردگان کا تہہ دل سے مشکور ہوں۔ ترکی کی غیر متزلزل حمایت حقِ خودارادیت کی جائز و منصفانہ جدوجہد میں مصروف کشمیریوں کیلئےہمت و حوصلے کا ایک ذریعہ ہے۔ pic.twitter.com/RIBJAIUpty — Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) September 23, 2020 In yet another attempt to raise the matter of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Kashmir conflict is still a burning issue. In a pre-recorded statement, the leader said that it is imperative to solve the issue of Kashmir through dialogue. “We are in favour of solving this issue through dialogue within the framework of the United Nations resolutions, especially in line with the expectations of the people of Kashmir,” Erdogan added. In the last one year, Pakistan-ally Turkey has used several platforms to raise the issue of Jammu and Kashmir. However, India, time and again, has told the west-Asian country that Kashmir is an internal matter of India. Last week, India had slammed Pakistan, Turkey and Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) at the 46th session of the Human Rights Council for their remarks on India’s internal affairs.
