Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said India rejects all references made by the Turkish President on Jammu and Kashmir, stating that the region is an integral and inseparable part of India.

“We call upon the Turkish leadership not to interfere in India’s internal affairs and develop a proper understanding of the facts, including the grave threat posed by terrorism emanating from Pakistan to India and the region,” he said.

“And now, we feel the same about Kashmir today. It was Çanakkale yesterday and Kashmir today; there is no difference between the two,” Erdoğan said, adding that Turkey will continue to support Pakistan.

President Erdoğan also stated how Turkey raised the Kashmir issue at the U.N. General Assembly post the crackdown in Jammu and Kashmir by New Delhi.

He said the suffering of the Kashmiri people had worsened in recent years due to the taking of “unilateral steps.” “This approach, which increases the ]situation and denies freedom and vested rights of the Kashmiri people, benefits no one,” Erdoğan had stated.
