Erdogan ‘energizes’ the crisis in Kashmir – threatens India too
ATHENS, (BM) – The crisis with Erdogan was not enough for him, now he is dealing with India as well. Turkey is emerging as the leader of the entire Muslim world, even threatening India in the Kashmir issue, having completely lost its sense of logic, learned BulgarianMiiltary.com citing Pentapostagma.
The Pakistani government also intervened, publicly praising Turkey for its support for the people of Kashmir, which is owned and ruled by India, provoking a backlash from the Indian government.
After a meeting in the capital of Islamabad with the Turkish envoy to the country of South Asia, the chairman of the Pakistani Parliamentary Committee for Kashmir, Shehryar Afridi, said that the attitude of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Kashmir helped issue internationally.
“President Erdogan has played a vital role in targeting India acting against the people of Kashmir and other minorities,” Afridi said in a statement after meeting with Turkish Ambassador Mustafa Yurdakul.
He stressed that India is destabilizing peace in the region bordering three nuclear powers, Pakistan, China and India, while warning that any “crisis” in Kashmir could endanger the entire region, affecting more than half of the world population.
“Turkey is playing a leading role for the entire Ummah (Muslims around the world) so that they remain united against their common enemy,” Afridi said, stressing the urgent need to draw international media attention to Kashmir.
He also praised the key role of the Turkish embassy in promoting relations between Pakistan and Turkey.
For his part, Yurdakul stressed that Ankara’s role in expressing Kashmir’s grievances will continue. New Delhi recently warned Ankara not to get involved in the region, so far from its borders, because there would be consequences.
Kashmir is an area near the Himalayas inhabited by Muslims and Hindus and is occupied by India and Pakistan, while the whole is claimed by the latter.
Since the partition of India in 1947, New Delhi and Islamabad have waged three wars between them, in 1948, 1965 and 1971, two of them in the Kashmir region.
Turkey is involved in the region by taking Pakistan’s side for economic reasons, as it wants to promote Turkish-made weapons, while its neo-Ottoman plans include expanding into the region as part of a pan-Islamic plan to unite all Muslims.
We think that the well-known Greek proverb “with the hens and the bran” fits perfectly with the plans of the Turkish president who is constantly increasing and multiplying his enemies, after the Eastern Mediterranean.
