Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif will attend the inauguration ceremony of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara, Turkiye on Saturday (tomorrow).
“Leaving for Türkiye today at the invitation of my brother, H.E. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to attend his inauguration ceremony,” the premier said in a tweet on Friday.
Last month, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday narrowly won a historic runoff election that extended two decades of his transformative but divisive rule until 2028.
“I will convey our warmest greetings to the President on behalf of the government and people of Pakistan on his re-election. The fraternal ties between Pakistan and Türkiye are set to deepen further in line with our shared resolve and common destiny,” he said.
Shehbaz would also extend an invitation to President Erdogan to attend the seventh meeting of the High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council in Islamabad, a government statement earlier said.
The PM went on to add that the upcoming council meeting would provide the “right avenue” to take the momentum of the two countries’ strategic partnership forward. “We have yet to unlock the potential of our multifaceted relationship and efforts are being made in that direction.”
