Turkey urges UN to play 'more active role’ on Kashmir
Turkey welcomes consultations held by UN Security Council on recent developments in disputed Jammu and Kashmir region

By Faruk Zorlu

ANKARA (AA) - Turkey on Saturday called on the United Nations to play a "more" active role in resolving the Jammu and Kashmir dispute within the framework of the UN resolutions.

In a statement, the Turkish Foreign Ministry welcomed the consultations held by the UN Security Council on Friday on the recent developments in the disputed region of Jammu and Kashmir.

The ministry also reiterate its wish that the dispute be resolved through dialogue between the parties concerned. It also called for calm and avoiding unilateral steps that would escalate tension.

Kashmir region has been facing a communication blockade since Aug. 5, when India scrapped special status of Jammu and Kashmir. For the first time, landline services were also snapped across the region, thus making it impossible for people to communicate with the outside world.

Earlier in the day, a government spokesman in Jammu and Kashmir said that the authorities have begun restoring landline services in the region.
