Turkish investors have shown interest in Pakistan’s low-cost housing scheme, said Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi. Pakistan plans on building five million houses under the scheme.
Qureshi had accompanied Prime Minister Imran Khan on his two-day visit to Turkey. He termed Khan’s meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as very comprehensive. The Turkish president will soon visit Pakistan, he said.
A cooperative council will be established between the two countries too, Qureshi remarked. He said that a trilateral summit will also be held in Istanbul amongst Pakistan, Turkey, and Afghanistan. The Afghan president has also responded positively to attend the summit.
In a tweet today, Foreign Minister Qureshi said Pakistan and Turkey are on the same page on all issues of strategic importance.
