“Pakistan and Turkey are bound by an exemplary relationship characterized
by warmth, cordiality and mutual trust. These are embedded deep in history,

a Foreign Office statement issued before the visit said.
Frequent exchanges at the leadership and ministerial levels and growing

Bilateral relations

growth and dynamism in recent years. Both sides are working to give powerful
thrust to bilateral trade, investment and commercial cooperation as part of the
efforts to build a robust economic partnership.

the OIC Contact Group on Jammu and Kashmir. In a vivid reflection of

further deepening and strengthening the bilateral relationship in all fields
of human endeavour.

substantially to further solidifying the abiding relationship between
the two fraternal countries.
