Islamabad: Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Mohammad Faisal on Thursday confirmed that the upcoming visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been postponed for the time being.

During his weekly briefing, Dr. Faisal said Pakistan and Turkey have deep brotherly ties and both the countries maintain regular leadership level contacts. He added the visit of the Turkish leader has been postponed for the time being and it will be rescheduled.

Responding to a question, the spokesperson said Turkey has remained a victim of terrorism for a long time and we need to recognize its legitimate security concerns in the region.

“The prime minister called the Turkish President and reiterated Pakistan’s support and solidarity with Turkey,” Dr. Faisal said. “Pakistan continues to support the territorial integrity of Syria and hopes a political solution to the Syrian conflict will be reached at the earliest.”
