ANKARA – Pakistani mangoes are known for being king of fruits due to their qualities such as the exotic aroma and honey-sweetness, and this time the edible stone fruit made headlines as it was presented by the Pakistani head of state to Turkish President.

As high-level delegations from several countries arrived in Ankara for Erdogan’s swearing-in ceremony Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif also visited the friendly nation.

PM Shehbaz rubbed shoulders with the Turkish President during a dinner as the premier told Erdogan and his wife that he had brought Pakistani mangoes for them. Sharif, while holding Erdogan’s hands in respect, said ‘Half of them are for my brother and half for my sister.’

On PM’s sweat gesture, Erdogan and his wife thanked Sharif. ‘I know Pakistani mangoes are very tasty and sweet,’ Turkish premier said.

During the interaction, PM Shehbaz conveyed felicitations on behalf of the government and the people of Pakistan to Erdogan on his re-election.
