ANKARA (AA) – "Unparalleled and unique" relations of Pakistan and Turkey are deeply rooted in history, faith and common culture, Pakistan’s ambassador to Turkey said on Tuesday.

"Both countries have unanimity of views on major regional and global issues and always support each other on important national issues," Muhammad Syrus Sajjad Qazi said during his interaction with the participants of the 109th National Management Course of the National School of Public Policy of Pakistan in Ankara.

Qazi appraised the delegation on the status of the multi-faceted Turkey-Pakistan bilateral relations and their steady growth in all domains, including the fields of politics, economy, investment, defense, culture and education.

He said the bilateral trade volume was not "commensurate" with the "excellent" political relations, but the Turkish investments in Pakistan were growing at a healthy pace.

"At the moment, these come to more than $2.5 billion," he added.
