By News Desk
Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai, Secretary General, Washington-based World Kashmir Awareness Forum expressed his deep appreciation for the reference Honourable Recep Tayyib Erdogan, President of Turkey made to Kashmir during his address to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, September 21, 2021. President Erdogan articulated his consistent policy towards Kashmir by repeating,
“We maintain our stance in favour of solving the ongoing problem in Kashmir for 74 years, through dialogue between the parties and within the framework of relevant United Nations resolutions.”
These words have given the people of Kashmir encouragement. The President has underscored the need for peace in Kashmir as elsewhere. And for this, President has the sincere thanks of the people of Kashmir.
The significance of the message of President Erdogan is aimed at promotion of a dialogue among all parties to the dispute. This is the only means of achieving a genuine and lasting peace in this volatile conflict.
As we all know that the people of Kashmir have suffered long and needlessly because of this brutal conflict. They demand and they deserve peace.
The people of Kashmir also share the assessment of President Erdogan that “Our General Assembly needs to be strengthened so that the international community can contribute more effectively to the solution of global issues.” It is important because the stakes are higher today than in the past. As we all observe very well that when weapons fall into the hands of irresponsible persons – both state and non-state actors – even a small conflict can threaten to take on deadly proportions. Let us hope it is not going to happen.
