NEW DELHI (20th Oct, 2019): Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided to cancel his two-day official Turkey visit.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan openly raised voice of occupied Kashmir people at United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and backed Pakistan stance at the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) meeting in Paris.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was scheduled to leave on a two-day official visit to Turkey at the end of this month, following his important visit to Saudi Arabia, where he is going on October 27-28 to attend a mega investment summit.
Prime Minister of India Modi had last visited Turkey during the G20 summit in Antalya in 2015. He had held bilateral talks with president Recep Tayyab Erdogan in Osaka, on the sidelines of the G20 summit in June this year. The Turkish President had paid a two-day visit to India in July 2018.
However, President Erdogan’s strong backing of Pakistan view on Indian Occupied Kashmir and highlighting widespread human rights violations during his speech at the UN General Assembly last month has not gone down well with India.
