Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, might come to Pakistan in the first week of August for an official visit, according to local media reports.

High-ranking officials, including Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan, will be among President Erdogan’s entourage.

Erdogan’s visit is scheduled to include an important meeting with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. The leaders will discuss a range of issues that are important to both parties.

The Turkish Foreign Minister will meet with Bilawal Zardari, his Pakistani counterpart, at relevant diplomatic events.

The two countries are expected to sign several Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) during this visit. These agreements are anticipated to increase economic and commercial cooperation among various industries.

The possible trip is in response to Prime Minister Sharif’s previous trip to Turkey, during which he attended Erdogan’s inauguration ceremony after his victory on May 28.

While in Ankara, Sharif met with several world leaders to discuss possible areas for partnership and to offer President Erdogan the greetings of the government and people of Pakistan.
