A seminar was held in Ankara on Monday to mark Kashmir Solidarity Day, and participants expressed their full support of the people of Kashmir and their democratic right to self-determination.
The seminar was jointly organized by the Turkey-Pakistan Cultural Association and Ankara University. Delivering a speech at the event, Burhan Kayatürk, president of the Turkey-Pakistan Cultural Association and a member of the Turkish Parliament said, “Turkey shall always support the cause of the Kashmiri people.”
Referring to a speech Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan gave at the UN General Assembly where he advocated the speedy resolution of this long-standing dispute to achieve peace and stability in the region, Kayatürk stressed Turkey will continue to play a positive role and will support efforts aimed at the resolution of the Kashmir dispute.
