President Erdogan had stressed on his consistent policy towards Kashmir by the repetition of his words. He said, "We (Turkey) maintain our stance in favour of solving the problem going on in Kashmir, through dialogue between the parties and as well within the framework of relevant United Nations resolutions.”

Dr Fai, in a statement said, the President has underscored the need for peace in Kashmir as elsewhere as his words have given the people of Kashmir an encouragement. For this, President Erdogan has the sincere thanks of the people of Kashmir.

The people of Kashmir have suffered for long and needlessly because of this brutal conflict. They demand for peace, and they deserve it.

The message of President Erdogan is significant and as it was aimed at the promotion of a dialogue among all the disputing parties. It was the only means of achieving lasting peace in the Indian-occupied Kashmir (IOK ), Dr Fai added.
