The Pakistani side said that since Russia, Iran and Turkey included issues of political interest to them — such as the crises in Iraq and Syria, the problems of the Middle East and Al-Quds, and Turkey’s failed coup — it would be impossible for Pakistan to leave out the Kashmir issue, the report said.

The report quoted sources as saying that the representatives from Afghanistan proved to be the hardest to convince.
