Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Çavusoglu has said Turkey "fully supports" Pakistan's position, and asked the OIC Secretary General to mobilise the OIC Contact Group and send a fact-finding mission to Kashmir.

"We believe this dispute can be solved only through dialogue and diplomacy, not violence or using force," he said.

During an earlier meeting with Sartaj Aziz, Çavusoglu said both sides discussed methods to increase cooperation and are "hoping to sign a free trade agreement this year".

The Turkish Foreign Minister said he had informed Aziz "how we are normalising our relations with Russia and Israel", and also discussed regional issues, particularly ties with Afghanistan, and said Turkey would continue supporting reconciliation efforts in the region.
