Turkish President Erdogan to address joint session of Parliament todayArchive
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is set to address a joint session of Parliament in Islamabad on Friday (today).
The Turkish president arrived in Pakistan on Thursday for a two-day visit aimed at strengthening bilateral strategic partnership and economic ties.
The joint sitting of Parliament, called by President Dr Arif Alvi, is set to begin at 11am.
This will be the fourth time that Erdogan addresses the Pakistani Parliament. The Turkish leader last visited Pakistan in 2016, during the PML-N-led government, during which he also addressed the Parliament.
PTI lawmakers had boycotted the session to protest against the then prime minister Nawaz Sharif for his alleged corruption.
In addition to his address before the joint sitting of Parliament today, Erdogan will also meet Prime Minister Imran Khan for discussions on bilateral, regional and global issues.
