After Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan\'s Kashmir comments, PM Narendra Modi cancels Ankara visit

New Delhi: With Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan openly raising Kashmir issue at the United Nations General Assembly and his country backing Pakistan at the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) meet in Paris, India has decided to give a cold shoulder to its ties with Turkey - cancelling a two-day official visit to Ankara by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the end of this month.

PM Modi's trip to Ankara would have been his first stand-alone visit to Turkey. He was to have proceeded to Turkey from Saudi Arabia, where he is going on October 27-28 to attend a mega-investment summit. The decision to cancel the visit to Turkey marks a low in relations between New Delhi and Ankara, which have never been very warm.

Trade and defence cooperation were among the issues that were to be on the table during PM Modi's Ankara visit, which had been agreed to 'in-principle.'

The Ministry of External Affairs was non-committal over the development.

"The visit was never finalised, so there is no question of cancellation," a MEA source said.

PM Modi had last visited Turkey during the G20 in Antalya in 2015. He had held a bilateral with Erdogan in Osaka, on the sidelines of the G20 in June this year.
