President Erdoğan’s Visit to Pakistan
Long Live Pakistan-Turkey Brotherhood!
On 13th of February, President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, reached Islamabad on a two-day visit to attend the sixth meeting of the High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council. The visit came at a testing time for both countries and it, indeed, speaks to the durable nature of the relationship. Although Turkey and Pakistan have always had a particularly close relationship, Erdogan’s sparked a different kind of excitement among Pakistanis as the nation considers him a great leader of the Muslim Ummah and also follows his statements and actions very closely. This visit was not an ordinary one, as is evident from the fact that he was accompanied by members of his cabinet, senior government officials and top business figures. That President Erdogan did take up a visit to Pakistan despite Prime Minister Imran Khan failing to keep his commitment to attend the December 2019 Kuala Lumpur Summit—pretty understandably on the wishes of its other ‘friendly’ countries in the region—shows that the Pak-Turk relationship is beginning to grow into a serious engagement, and cannot be deterred by a diplomatic hiccup or two.
