The two brother Muslim countries have a rich history of relationships based on mutual trust and interests and the Turkish President visit is aimed at further strengthening these relations.

With the international politics changing fast it seems that world is witnessing a gradual shift in countries relations, China and Pakistan seems to have grown closer while China and Russia seem to be growing closer too. Similarly, Turkey while it is a member of NATO still manages to have good relations with Russia.

Though a drastic change is feared in USA policies after Donald Trump win as the next President of U.S.A, experts suggests that things are easier said than done and no major policy shift is expected in the USA policy towards other countries.

However, in the present scenario and political changes the Turkish President visit is all the more important to forge relations between the two countries.
