LAHORE - Punjab Governor Latif Khosa has said bilateral trade between Turkey and Pakistan has reached $1 billion for the first time, while Pakistans exports to Turkey amounted to $750 million in 2010; but there is a need to increase the trade between the two countries which would help boost economic ties. He was talking to a Turkish media delegation which called on him at Governor House, Lahore, on Friday. Khosa said Pakistan valued its relations with Turkey as it had always extended help to Pakistan and also supported in war against terror. Emphasising the positive role of media, the Governor said Pakistan and Turkey had been facing the menace of terrorism and the media could play a proactive role to change the mindsets of people regarding extremism. The Governor said predators strikes were creating mistrust and alienating the local population due to collateral damage, thus undermining Pakistans efforts for stability in FATA. Talking about Turkey-India relations, the Governor observed that India had been trying to out maneuver Pakistan by enhancing political, economic and cultural relations with Turkey, but relations between the two countries and should not at any stage impinge upon the warm brotherly relations between Pakistan and Turkey. The Turkish media delegation comprised MS. Ayse Suberker, from TRT Turk NEWS CHANNEL, Mr Hayreddin Turan, Foreign news editor Turkiye, Mr Abdullah Bozkurt, from Todays Zaman and Mr Emre SOLAK, Representative Anadolu News. Later, addressing an event of floral art exhibition organised by Floral Art Society Pakistan at a local hotel, Khosa said arranging flowers was a relaxing and refreshing hobby and flowers symbolize beauty. He said it was difficult to think of a soul that was not moved by the beauty and elegance of flowers and observed that floral art exhibition could build a softer image of Pakistan which was need of the hour and hoped the exhibition would help promote national and international goodwill.
