Pakistan is to expel 108 teachers working for the Fetullah Terror Organization's (FETO) schools, as the Islamabad High court rejects the appeal demand of FETO who were asked to leave in five days by the Interior Minister.

The court highlighted that they are not authorized to intervene in the Interior Ministry's decision in the extension of visas.

"In Pakistan, if a visa has expired, the interior ministry has the right to decide if that visa can be extended or not," the court decision said.

The statement paves way for around 400 people, 108 teachers and their families, to leave Pakistan until November 20.

On Thursday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan called teachers and their families to leave Pakistan immediately.

Also, during his speech in Pakistan, Erdoğan called on Pakistan to cooperate against all terror organizations, particularly ISIL and FETÖ, which threatens the security and the integral territory of the countries in the region.

As a response, Pakistan also said it was fully committed to cooperate with Turkish authorities in its fight against the terror organization that spread to many continents, including Asia.
