Distinguished Turkish citizens, esteemed Pakistani brothers and sisters,
I have the greatest honour and pleasure of serving as the Turkish Ambassador to Pakistan, which we always recognize as a friendly and brotherly country.
In 2017, we celebrated the 70th year of Pakistan’s creation as well as the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Turkey and Pakistan. Although our official relations were established in 1947, the foundation of the friendly and brotherly ties that was supported by common religion and culture of the two peoples goes centuries back. This admirable legacy is a source of pride for us.
We enjoy excellent political relations with Pakistan. Recent high-level visits and High Level Strategic Cooperation Council that covers the various aspects of our bilateral relations are concrete indicators of the strength of our relations.
We attach utmost importance to the improvement of our economic relations to the level of political relations. Within this context, increasing the bilateral trade volume and mutual investments, which are below the potential, remains one of our priorities. Increasing the number of tourists on a mutual basis is another primary objective.
We will continue our efforts to maintain the recent positive momentum in the fields of education and culture, so as to hand the close bonds inherited from past generations and historical experiences to our future generations. On the one hand Turkish Maarif Foundation and the Turkish Language Department in the NUML in Islamabad, on the other hand Yunus Emre Turkish Cultural Centres in Lahore and Karachi that will be operational very soon, are going to serve to our significant goal of getting the Turkish and Pakistani peoples even more closer.
With these in mind, our main mission will be to further the relations in every field between Turkey and Pakistan that are nurtured by the historical brotherhood and friendship. We request your support and pray in accomplishing our mission.
I salute you with respect and love.
