Pakistan, Turkey sign 11 agreements, MoUs to enhance bilateral ties

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and Turkey signed 11  agreements and MoUs to strengthen bilateral relation in different fields during the first day of Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu’s two-day visit to Pakistan.

These agreements and MoUs  included one agreement, five protocols, three MoUs, one additional protocol and a Joint Declaration to strengthen their strategic relationship.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif while addressing the 4th meeting of the Pakistan-Turkey High Level Strategic Cooperation Council in Islamabad along with visiting Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, said that Pakistan and Turkey are indispensable partners working assiduously to promote peace and prosperity for their people and the region.

The premier said Pakistan-Turkey relationship is unparalleled in inter-state relations. The special ties have flourished due to successive generations of leaders in the two countries, he said.

He expressed gratitude over the strong and spontaneous support extended by the Turkish leadership and people following the Peshawar school attack.

Addressing the meeting, Davutoglu said Turkey-Pakistan relationship is exemplary.

He said there are no countries who feel they have common destiny like Pakistan and Turkey. He added that Turkish and Pakistani leaders have been visiting each other’s countries but now these visits have been systemised.

Pakistan and Turkey have also agreed to enhance bilateral cooperation in the fields of defence and security.

The consensus emerged during a meeting between Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif and Davutoglu in Islamabad.

“Matters related to regional and bilateral security and defence cooperation came under discussion,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a short statement after the meeting.
