FM Qureshi and Turkish counterpart Cavusoglu address joint press conference in IslamabadArchive
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu are addressing a joint press conference in Islamabad.
"In our meeting today we focused on enhancing our economic relations," FM Qureshi said. "[We discussed] ways to facilitate each other.
"At the United Nations conference there will be a separate conference on Kashmir on the side. It happens every year but it is different this time because a new UN report has come out which sheds light on the India-occupied Kashmir.
"There has certainly been a surge in the interest of people in the human rights abuses that are taking place there. I invited FM Cavusoglu to that conference, and I am thankful to him that he accepted the invitation."
"I got the chance today to thank the Turkish FM for supporting Pakistan's membership in Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG). On the Netherlands caricature issue as well, Turkey supported us."
Qureshi further said that the situation of Afghanistan, Iran and Kashmir were also discussed during the meeting.
Turkish FM Cavusoglu congratulated Qureshi and Prime Minister Imran Khan on forming the new government in Pakistan.
"Governments and people come and go, but real friendships cannot end," Cavusoglu said.
