‘Don’t interfere’: India to Turkish President Erdogan after Kashmir comment

India on Saturday criticised Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s comments on Kashmir and asked him not to interfere in India’s internal affairs and to “develop proper understanding of facts including threat of terrorism emanating from Pakistan”.

The terse message from the Ministry of External Affairs came after Erdogan on Friday once again raked up the Kashmir issue and vowed that Ankara would support Pakistan’s stand as it is a matter of concern to both the countries, reports Hindustan Times.

Erdogan, who addressed a joint session of Pakistan’s Parliament, also announced that Turkey will back Pakistan in its efforts to come out of the Grey List of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) which is meeting this week in Paris.

Erdogan’s statement came on a day when India marked the first anniversary of the Pulwama suicide bombing by the terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad that killed 40 troopers of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir.
