Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday said that the sufferings of people of Kashmir and the escalations along Line of Control (LoC) can no longer be ignored.

The Turkish President said this while addressing a a joint press conference with Pakistan Prime Minister in Islamabad after a one-on-one meeting, Express Tribune reported. 

"Our brother and sisters in Kashmir are suffering because of the escalating tensions along the Line of Control (LoC) and Kashmir, which can no longer be ignored," Erdogan was quoted as saying in the report. 

According to Dawn News, Erdogan said that a close eye is being kept "on tensions along LoC and loss of life there."

He said that through dialogue between Pakistan and India, "keeping in mind UN resolution and demands of brothers and sisters in Kashmir, a resolution in Kashmir can be reached."

The Turkish leader is set to address Pakistan's parliament for the third time today. 

He arrived at the PM House earlier today, where he was presented a guard of honour by a military contingent.

Erdogan landed in Islamabad on Wednesday, embarking on a two-day visit — his first to Pakistan since an attempted military coup failed to dislodge him from power earlier this year.
