Turkish President Erdogan may visit Pakistan in coming days

The Turkish government is also expected to address challenges faced by Turkish businessmen working in Pakistan.

ISLAMABAD: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is expected to visit Pakistan in the coming days following an invitation from Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

Sources indicated that relevant ministries have begun consultations to finalize the agenda for the visit.

Pending on Pakistan’s side are at least nine agreements, including protocols on the exchange of military and civilian personnel for social and cultural purposes and agreements involving the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority and Turkey’s Energy Market Regulatory Authority.

The Turkish government is also expected to address challenges faced by Turkish businessmen working in Pakistan.

The discussions will likely also cover vocational, technical, and religious education.

Meanwhile, the visit of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Pakistan has been postponed indefinitely, pending the finalization of mutually convenient dates by both parties.

The delay comes as the two countries remain in diplomatic communication to reschedule the visit at the earliest opportunity, although no specific reason for the postponement was provided.

If confirmed, this delay would mark the second time the crown prince’s visit to Pakistan has been postponed.

His planned trip in November 2022 faced similar delays attributed to political uncertainties surrounding elections at that time.

Originally, the crown prince’s visit to Pakistan was anticipated to occur either before or after his scheduled trip to Japan, scheduled from May 20 to 23.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif extended an invitation to Mohammed bin Salman during his official visit to Saudi Arabia, which was accepted by the crown prince.

Earlier this week, a delegation of prominent Saudi businessmen visited Pakistan, engaging in discussions with local counterparts to explore investment opportunities.

This visit aligned with the government’s ongoing efforts to attract Saudi investment as part of a comprehensive strategy to address Pakistan’s economic challenges.
