The star-studded event was attended by the federal ministers including Ali Haider Zaidi, Chaudhry Ghulam Sarwar, lawmakers, diplomats and notable citizens of the twin cities.

Fawad said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Imran Khan enjoyed close relationship based on trustworthiness, as both the leaders had a common vision to solve the problems facing the Muslim Ummah.

Despite the difficult epidemic conditions, the Turkish nation has achieved successes in economy, domestic politics and foreign policy which are important signs and show the effectiveness of the Presidential Government System, as well as the strong infrastructure of our country, said the President’s message.
