The world is “extremely jealous” of the friendship between these two fraternal nations, according to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who is currently on a two-day official visit to Turkey. He has stated that it is probably time Ankara and Islamabad turn their ties into a strategic alliance.

In addition to praising the transformation of the agricultural and industrial sectors, he also praised the social welfare initiatives carried out by the Turkish government, especially in remote locations.
