Turkish, Pakistani Leaders Discuss COVID-19 Cooperation

Turkey's President Erdogan offers condolences in phone call on recent plane crash in Karachi, Pakistan.

The Turkish president and Pakistani prime minister on Monday discussed a variety of issues over the phone, ranging from bilateral cooperation in the fight against the novel coronavirus to regional issues.
During the phone, Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan also offered condolences to Pakistan's Imran Khan over a plane crash on Friday in the southern port city of Karachi and reiterated Turkey's strong support for Pakistan, according to a statement from the Prime Ministry.
The two leaders also agreed to enhance bilateral cooperation against the COVID-19 pandemic, the statement added.
Briefing the Turkish president on the steps taken to control the spread of coronavirus in Pakistan, Khan thanked Ankara for providing valuable medical equipment that was "reflective of historic linkages between the two countries to help each other in times of need."
Through special cargo flights Turkey's flag carrier Turkish Airlines, Ankara delivered two shipments of medical aid including tens of thousands of surgical masks and protective suits.
"Prime Minister Imran Khan briefed President Erdogan on the worsening human rights situation in IOJ&K [Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir] accentuated by double lockdown and intensified military crackdown," the statement said.
Khan also apprised Erdogan of "the demonization of Muslims in India in the context of COVID-19, which should be rejected by the international community."
