On Board Special Air India plane: Raising the issue of cross border terrorism during his first visit to Turkey, a traditional ally of Pakistan, President Pranab Mukherjee today said the menace must be dealt with both “individually and collectively” as it was a threat to global peace.




The President also made it clear that India was against any third party intervention to resolve bilateral issues with Pakistan.

The President, who met his Turkish counterpart Abdullah Gul and held ‘restricted' talks with Turkish prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan yesterday, said both the leaders agreed with him that terrorism was a menace threatening the world and it needed to be dealt both “individually and collectively”.  

Turkey is a key member of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), holding the post of Secretary General of the grouping, and is considered a traditional ally of Pakistan.
