The UN should resolve the Kashmir issue in a peaceful manner and Turkey supports Pakistan's efforts to find a peaceful solution, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Friday as he held talks with his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi here.
During their talks, both sides agreed to enhance the bilateral economic and strategic cooperation.
Qureshi said that Turkey supported Pakistan's effort for a peaceful resolution of the Kashmir issue at the UN.
At the UN conference there will be a separate meeting on Kashmir on the side. It happens every year but it is different this time because a new UN report has come out which sheds light on Kashmir, Qureshi said.
Turkey has been backing Pakistan on the Kashmir issue.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan last year had advocated a multilateral dialogue to resolve the Kashmir issue. India, however, asserted that the Kashmir issue is an bilateral matter between New Delhi and Islamabad.
He said that the two sides also discussed the regional situation including in Afghanistan, Iran and Kashmir.
