Recent visit of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Pakistan was not only aimed at strengthening bilateral ties but also promoting trade, investment and defence cooperation between the two brotherly countries. Pakistan and Turkey have strong spiritual and cultural bonds. This is the reason that right after the coup attempt in Turkey, Pakistan in no time condemned the coup and expressed solidarity with the democratic government and the people of Turkey.
Pak-Turk friendship is not only a sign of unity between the two countries but it is a strong bond of mutual trust, tolerance and long lasting confidence. It is hoped that this new era of friendship would prove to be a milestone and further enhance bilateral relations between the two countries.
