Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says his country will continue support for the resolution of Kashmir issue according to aspirations of Kashmiri people and the relevant UN resolutions.

President Erdogan underscored the importance of brotherly and friendly relations between Turkey and Pakistan.

He said Prime Minister Imran Khan in his address at the UN General Assembly represented Muslim Ummah and Kashmiri people in real sense.

Erdogan said all religions reject terrorism and extremism and linking these to any specific religion is condemnable.

Asad Qaiser said both countries stand shoulder to shoulder in times of difficulty.

Appreciating the address of Turkish President in the UN General Assembly, Asad Qaiser said Tayyip Erdogan highlighted the Kashmir issue and challenges confronted by Muslim Ummah in an effective manner.

He emphasized the need for unity and harmony among the Muslim countries to resolve the issues faced by Ummah.

Asad Qaiser also hailed the decision of establishment of TV channel for countering Islamophobia and to highlight the true identity of Islam by Pakistan, Turkey and Malaysia.

He said Turkey has a clear and unequivocal stance on Kashmir issue.

He urged the international community to play its role in lifting the curfew and ending the barbarism of Indian forces in Occupied Kashmir.
