Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s visit to Turkiye is said to have been postponed.

Government sources say Mr Sharif was to leave for Turkiye on Wednesday to visit the earthquake-affected areas.

The new schedule of the PM’s visit will be announced soon, the sources said, adding the visit has been postponed owing to rehabilitation work in the earthquake-affected areas.

Earlier today, an All-Parties Conference scheduled for Feb 9 was postponed for the second time because of the prime minister’s visit to Turkiye to express solidarity with the brotherly country that was hit by a deadly earthquake on Monday.

The prime minister was to be accompanied on the visit by Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari. He was scheduled to hold meetings in the Turkish capital of Ankara, besides visiting the quake-ravaged areas.
