“The brotherhood between Turkey and Pakistan is a true brotherhood reinforced by historical events’’

Addressing a Joint Session of the National Assembly and Senate of Pakistan, President Erdoğan said: “Very few countries and nations get to have the kind of ties of brotherhood Turkey and Pakistan share. The coveted brotherhood between Turkey and Pakistan is a true brotherhood strengthened by history and reinforced by historical events.”

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who is in the Pakistani capital city of Islamabad for the 6th meeting of the Turkey-Pakistan High Level Strategic Cooperation Council, delivered a speech at a Joint Session of the National Assembly and Senate of Pakistan.

“Very few countries get to have the kind of ties of brotherhood Turkey and Pakistan share”

“We by no means see ourselves as strangers here in Pakistan. We feel ourselves at home here in the fertile geography of the Islamic world,” President Erdoğan said, adding: “Very few countries and nations get to have the kind of ties of brotherhood Turkey and Pakistan share. The coveted brotherhood between Turkey and Pakistan is a true brotherhood strengthened by history and reinforced by historical events.”

Recalling the support the Pakistani people gave Turkey during its War of Independence, President Erdoğan went on to say: “We never have and never will forget the aid the Pakistani people sent us during our War of Independence by scrimping and saving. We never have and never will forget the Muhammad Ali and Shaukat Ali brothers and Chaudhrys who joined their brothers fighting for their independence and sacrificed their lives.”

“We will, inshallah, protect our primordial brotherhood forever,” President Erdoğan further stressed, noting: “Because our brotherhood comes not from blood relation but from ties of affection. Our friendship is motivated not by interests but by mutual love.”
