Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan (File)
Türkiye president in rajab tayyab erdogan Has won once again, and he will again be the leader of Turkey for the next 5 years. President Will remain Erdogan got 52.1 percent of the votes in the election, due to which he won the election from his rival. After Erdogan’s victory, a question is definitely arising in everyone’s mind that how will Turkey’s relations with India be after Erdogan’s victory again?
Before this, it has been seen many times on international forums that Turkey has taken the side of Pakistan and insisted on resolving the Kashmir issue. Turkey has been speaking on the Kashmir issue in the United Nations General Assembly for the last several years. The question is whether there is scope for improvement in the relations between India and Turkey in the next 5 years or not?
Humanity first for India
There was a severe earthquake in Turkey on February 6 this year, due to which the Panchatatva equations of this country were disturbed. Whole Turkey was shaken by the blood-curdling cold and the scene of devastation everywhere. In such a situation, India had sent NDRF team of 151 jawans and three dog squads from here. Along with this, a large amount of rescue and relief material was sent. A large consignment of medicines was also sent from India to Turkey. India had named this operation as ‘Operation Dost’.
When a natural disaster hit Turkey, India put aside all complaints and gave importance to humanity first and extended a helping hand. This step of India was highly appreciated by the people of Turkey and the NDRF team was sent off from Turkey with thunderous applause.
Did not participate in G20
Recently G20 meeting was held in Jammu and Kashmir of India in which 4 countries did not participate. Türkiye was also included in these four countries. Actually Türkiye is a part of Organization of Islamic Corporation ie OIC. Pakistan is also a member of this organization and it has been raising the Kashmir issue before the OIC from time to time. Because of this many members of OIC support Pakistan on Kashmir issue. Türkiye’s affection towards Pakistan is also visible in its attitude. For this reason, Turkey has abstained from the G20 meeting. However, he has not given any clear reaction on this matter.
Issue raised many times after removal of Article 370
In August 2019, the BJP’s Modi government at the center announced the removal of Article 370. Due to this, the special status given to the state was abolished. Since then, Turkey had raised the Kashmir issue several times in international forums. Erdogan had raised this issue since 2019 in the United Nations General Assembly. He called it blockade in 2019, said in 2020 that after the removal of 370 in Kashmir, the situation has become serious. Had appealed for permanent peace in 2021. However, due to the meeting with PM Modi and India’s efforts, Erdogan’s tone changed and he described the issue as a bilateral issue between the two countries. Now it remains to be seen how Erdogan’s tone will be with India in the coming 5 years.
