PM Shehbaz Sharif Left for Turkey to Support and Solidarity

PM Shehbaz Sharif visits Turkey to express solidarity post-earthquake.

“I am leaving for Turkey with a message of unwavering solidarity and support from the people and government of Pakistan for our Turkish brothers and sisters,” PM Shehbaz Sharif said in a tweet.

He continued, “true to the spirit of one nation living in two states,” Pakistan regards Turkey’s loss as its own.

PM Shehbaz was supposed to leave for Ankara on February 7. However, due to bad weather and ongoing relief and rescue operations in Turkey, the trip was canceled at the last minute.

According to sources, the premier was unable to visit earthquake-affected areas because the helicopter was unable to fly due to bad weather. Furthermore, the Turkish leadership was involved in relief efforts.

The prime minister’s visit was rescheduled, and he left for Turkey today.
