The Turkish Foreign Ministry wished that the general elections in Pakistan, which will be held on May 11, would take place in a safe, peaceful and healthy atmosphere.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the Ministry condemned the recent attacks perpetrated against a large number of candidates and political parties with the purpose of affecting the elections negatively.
"We believe that the general elections in Pakistan will once again reflect the democratic preferences of all segments of the brotherly nation of Pakistan and contribute in overcoming various challenges that are being faced, as in all democratic countries," it said.
Stating that Turkey would maintain its solidarity with friendly and brotherly Pakistan for the peace and prosperity of the country, the ministry said "we take pride in seeing the importance attached by all parties participating in the general elections in Pakistan to the relations between Turkey and Pakistan, which take their source in the historic friendship and cultural brotherhood between the peoples of the two countries."Last Mod: 08 Mayıs 2013, 14:29
