Lahore—Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday strongly condemned the attempt to undermine democracy by a failed coup in the ‘brotherly country of Turkey.’
“We deeply admire the resolve of the brave and resilient Turkish people, who stood up against the forces of darkness and anarchy to express their support and commitment to democracy,” he stated. “We express our complete support and solidarity with President Erdogan, the democratically elected government of Turkey and the democratic institutions of Turkey.”
Nawaz Sharif said that Pakistan reaffirms its abiding interest in a democratic, peaceful and stable Turkey.
“We wish to convey our prayers and good wishes for President Erdogan’s well-being and welfare of the people of Turkey as well as the unity of the Islamic Ummah.
We highly value our strong and historic ties with Turkey, he added.
