RAWALPINDI: Awami Muslim League (AML) leader Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad has expressed in his recent statement that we should help the teachers who have been educating our children for the last twenty years or so.

He said that let it be known that the decision to deport the Turkish teachers has been made to please the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Rasheed has also decided to write a letter to the Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar as he expressed that Turkey is our friend and the deportation of 450 employees should not be given as a salute to the Turkish president.

Sheikh Rasheed commented that in the deportation matter of Turkish teachers, the relationship of Necmettin Bilal Erdogan with Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz should not be taken into consideration in this matter, instead the cordial relationship that two countries share should be looked at.

Sheikh Rasheed also revealed that the Pak-Turkey trade volume has reduced from $800 million to $300 million.
