India issues strong action against Turkish President remarks on J&K

Kumar said the Turkish President’s comments “distorted” events of the past to advance a “narrow-minded” view of the present

New Delhi: India on Monday issued a strong action against Turkey over its President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s statement expressing concern over the prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir He compared the “struggle” of Kashmiri people with that of the fight by Turkey during the World War I.

In a careful statement, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Kumar said Erdogan’s comments reflected neither an understanding of history nor of the conduct of diplomacy and will have strong implications on India’s ties with Ankara.

Raveesh Kumar the MEA spokesperson said India rejected the repeated attempts by Turkey to justify the cross-border terrorism “practiced so blatantly” by Pakistan.

While addressing a joint session of Pakistan’s Parliament on Friday, Erdogan compared the “struggle” of Kashmiri people with that of the fight by Turkish people against foreign domination during the World War I and threw his weight behind Islamabad on the Kashmir issue.

“India has taken a strong action with the Turkish government on the statement made by President Erdogan on the Indian Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir during his recent visit to Islamabad. These statements reflect neither an understanding of history nor of the conduct of diplomacy,” said Kumar.

Kumar said the Turkish President’s comments “distorted” events of the past to advance a “narrow-minded” view of the present.

“This recent incident is one more example of a pattern of Turkey interfering in the internal matters of other countries. India finds that completely unacceptable,” said Kumar.

The action was taken by Secretary (West) Vikas Swarup to the Ambassador of Turkey.
