Turkey standing by Pakistan on Kashmir crisis, says Fawad Ch
ISLAMABAD - Minister of Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said on Sunday that Turkey is standing by Pakistan on Kashmir crisis, hastening to add that the rest of stable Muslim countries will take decisions according to their own interests.

Talking to newsmen in Lahore, the minister said there is no Muslim bloc now adding that all Muslim countries are embroiled in conflict.

Chaudhry also expressed disappointment at the award conferred upon Indian premier Narendra Modi by United Arab Emirates.

"We consider UAE as a friend to Pakistan and it must not be forgotten that Pakistan had a huge role in making Dubai what it is today," he added.

The minister spoke at length about the role of Muslim countries regarding the Kashmir crisis highlighting that the Kashmir dispute was not Pakistan's problem, but a global human rights issue.

"What good is the leadership of a Muslim leader who does not stand by his Muslim brother despite visible cruelty and injustice?" he wondered.

The lawmaker clarified that Islamabad would not initiate a war willingly, however, it was ready to retaliate if it is imposed.

He said Pakistan had made all efforts to normalise the ties with India but they had not been reciprocated.

The minister asserted that despite imposing a lock-down in occupied Kashmir, Modi has been trapped adding that Modi does not want any international leader to discuss the Kashmir issue.

He questioned as to why ruling BJP has turned Kashmir into a jail adding that India's narrative of the Kashmir dispute being an internal matter was defeated when the United Nations Security Council convened a session to discuss it.

The legislator shared that that Prime Minister Imran Khan's upcoming address at the UN session in September will be an important one as he has an ability to 'put forward Pakistan's stance that many of our past leaders lacked'.
