PM Imran Khan’s standing ovation for Turkish orchestra - VIDEO
ANKARA — Prime Minister Imran Khan gave a standing ovation to a Turkish orchestra during a dinner hosted by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Friday.

The band played the famous Pakistani national song ‘Tera Pakistan Hai Ye Mera Pakistan Hai’ by Amjad Hussain.

As soon the band finished the song, the premier stood up from his chair to applaud the orchestra for the heartfelt performance.

Khan, who took oath as Pakistan’s 19th Prime Minister in last August following his party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)’s victory in July 2018 general elections, completed his two-day visit to Turkey -- a longtime ally of this South Asian nuclear state -- on Friday.

During his visit, the Pakistani PM held a one-to-one meeting with President Erdoğan in Ankara and discussed various issues including bilateral relations, national and international issues of mutual interests.

Khan also visited the Mausoleum of Ghazi Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and laid a floral wreath at the grave and noted his remarks in the Golden Book.

In his remarks in the Golden Book, the prime minister wrote that it was an honour for him to pay homage to one of the greatest statesman and visionary leader of the 20th century-Ghazi Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

Before landing in the Turkish capital on Thursday, Khan visited the tomb of renowned jurist and Islamic scholar Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi and laid a wreath at the grave in the Turkish city of Konya.
