Many statesmen believe in that the states have no friends, but interests. That’s why the number of states which have ‘special relations’ is few. US-UK relations or US-Israel relations are exceptional. Even in these examples we see that the national interests are more important than the emotional dimension. In this framework Turkish-Pakistani relations have always been special. In spite of the geographical distance and the clear economic and social differences between two countries, Turks have always loved the Pakistanis. Although the Pakistanis are not Turkish origin people, they have always been called ‘brothers’ in Turkey. Brotherhood between these two countries was something emerged before the family ties between the Turkish Republics and Turkey to be bounded.

since when do we love Pakistanis?{#lang_emotions_confused} I have never heard such a thing before. Pakistan was among the countries that helped the Turks during the independence war, but so were Italy, Russia, and India.

Yes we do! For my part, I do! Yes their support for our independence is the main reason for me and I cannot compare it to Russian support. I don´t think that the Rusian people was so sad about us and they decided to give their golds for some support to us. That was what those people did for us!

It´s been considered like a brother country, because they have taken Turkey´s independence movement and war an example for their own independence. Ottoman Empire with its independence war has shown underdevelopped countries that being a colony is not a choice in order to survive and dignity is above everything. Pakistan has seen Turkey as a guide for their civilization. They have made their flag like ours, but I think one of the most important things that has won Turks´ admiration has been that unlike some arabs even if they were poor Pakis have given their money and golds to support Ottomans in their war time.

Diplomatic relations between Ottomans and the Indian Subcontinent Muslims began since 1627 and Ottoman Empire had always been a symbol and hope rof all Muslims livin in Indian Subcontinet under British control.They were always supporting Ottoman Empire by heart or by demonstrations during war days.Another case Subcontinental Muslims were interested was Abdulhamid´s  "Hijaaz Railway Project".Subcontinental Muslims established a foundation named "Central Commitee for Hijaaz Railway project" in Hydarabad  to help  Abdulhamid´s one of biggest dreams.They also sent a "Red Crescent Committee" during "Balkan Wars" in 1912.Today you can read subjects about those days in Pakistani school books.

 Before 1947 there were no Pakistan so lets say Indian Muslims and there is realy a big big difference between Russian/Italian help and Indian Muslim´s help.

I think, we, Turks helped them during their independance struggle too..

I heard stories such as women gave their golden bracelets in Turkey for them.

And Pakistan is a place where you can say ´you are Turkish´ and all the doors open for you. (As a Turk, you feel like you are more priviledged than any other nation really. Definetely more than British )

They take Turkey as an example for many things. I listened many people talking to me about Ataturk and how Turkey and Ataturk were taught to them in schools.

There are many army officers exchange between two countries. I heard many pakistanies who visited Turkey saying that ´they felt as if they are home in Turkey´
