Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Wednesday participated in a meeting over the Kashmir conflict hosted by the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly meetings in New York.

Davutoglu has placed special emphasis on the humanitarian dimension of the issue and underlined the importance of the protection of basic rights and freedoms.

Davutoglu said Turkey supported OIC's efforts and the dialogue between Pakistan and India to find a settlement to the problem.

Separately, the Turkish foreign minister met with his Montenegrin counterpart Nebojsa Kaludjerovic as part of his bilateral contacts in New York.

Kaludjerovic expressed his countries gratitude for Turkish support for Montenegro's membership in NATO as Davutoglu said Turkey was willing to develop business ties.

The Turkish foreign minister met with his Nepalese counterpart Narayan Kaji Shrestha Prakash and the two ministers discussed a conference of the Least Developed Countries held in Istanbul earlier this year. Turkey is the coordinator in the Least Developed Countries initiative.

Davutoglu also met separately with Singaporean counterpart Kasiviswanathan Shanmugam and Bhutanese counterpart Khandu Wangchuk.

After the meeting with Wangchuk, the two ministers signed a joint declaration to establish diplomatic relations between Turkey and Bhutan.

Davutoglu also participated in a mini-summit meeting on Somalia hosted by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
