On Friday, PM Imran Khan telephoned the Turkish president and revealed that Mr. Erdogan will pay a visit to Pakistan “later this month”.
The PM said as quoted by PMO, “As a country which has lost more than 70,000 lives due to terrorism and borne the burden of more than three million refugees for decades, Pakistan is fully cognisant of threats and challenges being faced by Turkey having lost 40,000 of its people to terrorism.”
Furthermore, PM Khan said that Pakistan stands in full solidarity with Turkey.
Adding, “We pray that Turkey’s efforts for enhanced security, regional stability and peaceful resolution of the Syrian situation are fully successful.”
