Erdogan phones Imran, hails his gesture to defuse tension with India

ISLAMABAD: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has telephoned Prime Minister Imran Khan and appreciated his gesture towards India to de-escalate tensions between the two countries.

Erdogan said that Islam is a religion of peace that underscores resolving disputes in a peaceful manner, according to a statement issued from the PM Khan’s office.

The Turkish leader while hailing the Pakistan decision to release the captured Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot Abhinandan said that this gesture was “a sign of strength.”

During the conversation, the statement said, Khan briefed the Turkish leader on the situation as it evolved over the past few days and the efforts he made to de-escalate the crisis.

He also referred to the extremely difficult situation in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK) and brutalities inflicted upon the Kashmiri people.

Khan thanked Turkish president for his constant support to Pakistan and the Kashmiri people.

The two leaders agreed that President Erdogan’s visit to Pakistan for the Pakistan-Turkey High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council meeting would provide the opportunity for an in-depth overview of bilateral relations and the way forward, the statement read further.

On the occasion, PM Khan underscored that “Pakistan is the one country that will always stand by Turkey,” it added.
