The Turkish President was scheduled to pay an official visit to Pakistan on October 23, 2019.
But 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.
Erodgan last visited Pakistan in 2016, during the PML-N-led government, when he had addressed Parliament.
