The Foreign Ministry (MOFA) said on Monday that Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu would lead a delegation and meet with Pakistan’s top leadership from January 12-14, the News TV channel reported on November 24. ۔

The MOFA spokesman said that the Turkish Foreign Minister would hold bilateral talks with Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and during the visit he would meet Prime Minister Imran Khan and President Arif Ali.

The two Foreign Ministers will take stock of the current turmoil in bilateral relations and discuss regional and international issues.

Foreign Minister Kausuglo’s visit to Pakistan is part of a regular high-level exchange between the two countries. According to the TV channel, this will be his third visit in the last two and a half years.

The fraternal relations between Pakistan and Turkey are deeply rooted in common faith, culture and history and are subject to extraordinary mutual trust and respect.

Pak-Turkish bilateral relations have been established under a High Level Strategic Cooperation Council (HLSC), a high-level decision-making body that provides strategic direction for further enhancing the partnership. The sixth meeting of the HLSCC, chaired by President Erdogan and Prime Minister Imran Khan, was held in February 2020 in Islamabad.

The Strategic Economic Framework (SEF), signed at the sixth meeting of the HLSC, has 71 action points for deeper cooperation between the two countries in various fields.

“Pakistan and Turkey are enjoying close cooperation on issues of mutual interest in multilateral areas such as the United Nations, the OIC and the ECO. Turkey is one of the members of the OIC Contact Group on Jammu and Kashmir,” the Foreign Office spokesman said. He is an important member and has been supporting the right of the Kashmiri people to self-determination.

The forthcoming visit of the Turkish Foreign Minister will help in deepening bilateral relations and enhancing cooperation in various fields.
