Fatemi expresses solidarity with Turkish people, govt

Islamabad—Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Syed Tariq Fatemi has said Turkey stood by Pakistan in all difficult times and Pakistan will stand by the brotherly country in its difficult time.
In an interview, he strongly termed the coup attempt and said it was illegal and unconstitutional.
He said the coup attempt came when the Turkish Prime Minister won the vote of confidence only recently.
Tariq Fatemi spoke high of people of Turkey who stood firmly for de-mocracy, democratic institutions and rule of law.
To a question, he said no foreign country has any right to interfere in the internal affairs of another country. He said failure of the coup has sent a strong message to any foreign power that wanted to create disturbances or cause instability in Turkey.
Meanwhile, Fatemi has telephoned Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavusoglu and expressed solidarity of people and government of Pakistan with the Turkish Government and democratic institutions.
The Turkish Foreign Minister thanked the government and the people of Pakistan for showing resolve to stand by democracy in Turkey. He said this is what we expected from a brother county. He said they are also thankful to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for his message of support for Turkish democracy and the government.—SABAH
