In a call made from Prime Minister Imran Khan to President Erdogan on Friday regarding recent developments, the Prime Minister told him that Pakistan fully understands Turkey’s concerns relating to terrorism.
As a country which has lost more than 70,000 lives due to terrorism and borne the burden of more than 3 million refugees for decades, Pakistan is fully cognizant of the threats and challenges being faced by Turkey having lost 40,000 of its people to terrorism.
The Prime Minister conveyed that, like always, Pakistan stands in full support and solidarity with Turkey. ‘We pray that Turkey’s efforts for enhanced security, regional stability and peaceful resolution of the Syrian situation are fully successful.’
The Prime Minister added that the government and people of Pakistan are looking forward to accord a warm welcome to President Erdogan on his forthcoming visit to Pakistan later this month.
