Ankara, August 18 (KMS): Turkey has urged the United Nations to play a more active role in resolving the lingering Kashmir dispute within the framework of its resolutions.

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

The ministry also reiterated 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.

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