“I am thankful to all of you for the way in which the people of Pakistan have welcomed us. I have never felt like a stranger in Pakistan; it has always been like a home.

“Today, Pakistan and Turkey’s relations are admirable for others […]. During difficult times, Pakistan has supported Turkey.”

Quoting a poem by poet Allama Iqbal, Erdogan said: “Yes, like the poet of Lahore, people were drowning in these emotions, people of Pakistan had supported Turkey.
