Islamabad: President Arif Alvi has conferred the ‘Nishan-e-Imtiaz’ (Symbol of Distinction), a Military Award, upon Turkish Chief of Armed Forces General Yasar Güler at a special investiture ceremony at the Presidency in Islamabad.

On the occasion, the president said that the unparalleled fraternal relationship between Pakistan and Turkey has now transformed into a strong strategic partnership over the years and is growing stronger.

President Alvi said that the English TV channel to be collaboratively launched by Pakistan, Turkey, and Malaysia would go a long way toward combating Islamophobia on an international level.

He said that Pakistan and Turkey supported each other in difficult times and appreciated the Turkish support on the occupied Kashmir issue, particularly at the United Nations.

The president reiterated concerns about Indian atrocities perpetrated on innocent Kashmiris and said that the international community should play a positive role to resolve the issue.

He stressed that there is a vast potential for investment in Pakistan especially in the energy, infrastructure and food processing sectors. He said although Turkish investments have considerably grown, more needed to be done to realize the full bilateral trade potential.

General Guler said that Turkey fully supported Pakistan on the Kashmir issue and expressed hope that India and Pakistan would resolve the issue in accordance with UN resolutions.
