Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday spoke to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, felicitating the government and the people of Turkiye on the auspicious occasion of Eidul Azha.

Reciprocating the prime minister’s sentiments, President Erdogan extended warm Eid greetings to the people of Pakistan, PM Office Media Wing said in a statement.

The two leaders also reviewed bilateral relations between Pakistan and Turkiye.

They agreed that the 7th Session of the High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council (HLSCC) to be held in Islamabad, would provide a leadership driven and forward-oriented impetus to further strengthen the close fraternal relations between the two countries, especially in the economic domain.

“Pakistan-Turkiye relationship is underpinned by abiding bonds of religion, culture, and history. Regular leadership level contact remains a defining feature of this strategic partnership,” it was further added.
