Resulting in a boost of Pak-Turkey relations, Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and Turkish Premier, Ahmet Davutoglu met during the 70th UNGA Session in New York on Tuesday. The meeting covered a wide range of issues including extension of support to Kashmir and Cyprus. Pak-Turkey relations have always been rather brotherly, and this meeting intended to strengthen those bonds. Both Premiers agreed on working closely through High Level Strategic Cooperation Council (HLSCC) to solidify bilateral relationship between the two countries. The meeting produced over 50 agreements/MoUs under the aforementioned council.
The two leaders agreed to enhance multilateral Pak-Turkey relations using forums such as UN, OIC, and ECO. Both the countries share much the same concerns regarding UN reforms and especially the expansion Security Council (India will probably be the new member starting next year). The two countries agreed to lend unequivocal support to each other at these forums. Pakistan is in dire need to expand its relations with Muslim countries and build mutually beneficial ties, and hopefully if others follow this example it would eventually lead to a better and stronger coordination between Muslims all around the world.
Speaking on Pak-Turkey relations, the Turkish Premier mentioned that two are heart-to-heart, and were more like brother nations. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif took this opportunity to discuss peace in the region and expressed thorough concerns regarding the security situation with Afghanistan and increasing tensions between India and Pakistan. Moreover, the two countries reaffirmed their support for Kashmir and Cyprus.
It would seem that PM Nawaz is making the most of this visit when it comes to expressing concerns over border security and the longstanding Kashmir Issue, which is a remarkably good move, because sooner or later, Pakistan will need as much support as it can possibly gather in order to resolve certain problems. It is always better to act proactively when the integrity and security of one’s homeland is at stake.You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ for more updates.
