Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will address the joint sitting of Parliament on February 14, announced National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser on Thursday.
The speaker, during today’s NA session, said that he will hold consultations with all the parliamentary leaders on the matter, reported Radio Pakistan.
Erdogan is expected to arrive in Pakistan for a two-day visit on February 13.
The Turkish president was scheduled to pay an official visit to Pakistan on October 23 last year to cement relations between the two countries and to extend full support to Pakistan’s stance on the Kashmir issue. The visit, however, was postponed after Turkey’s involvement with a military offensive against Kurdish militants in Syria that raised tensions with Washington and other Western nations.
Ahead of the October visit, Prime Minister Imran Khan had said: “The government and the people of Pakistan are looking forward to accord a warm welcome to President Erdogan.”
