PTI setting new traditions in the foreign policy of Pakistan

ISLAMABAD - Imran Khan led PTI is setting new traditions in foreign policy of Pakistan through use of the social media accounts in the native languages of the brotherly countries to cement the bilateral ties.

Days after the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) official Twitter account sent out a message in the Chinese language, it has now tweeted in Turkish.

In a series of tweets in Turkish, the PTI account announced that President Recep Tayyip Ergodan telephoned PM-elect Imran Khan to congratulate him over his victory in the July 25 polls.

"President Erdogan congratulated Imran Khan by telephone," one of the tweets read.

“He stressed the importance of further development of Turkey-Pakistan relations,” another said.

While a third translated to, “Imran Khan thanked President Erdogan for his sensitivity.”

On July 27, the PTI’s official Twitter account sent out its first-ever message in the Chinese language.

The tweet reiterated Imran Khan's message from his victory speech in which he had said he would work on strengthening and improving Pakistan’s relations with China.

A day earlier, Erdogan called Prime Minister-in-waiting Imran Khan and congratulated him.

According to Turkey's *Anadolu Agency*, the PTI head called Erdogan's "leadership an example for the Islamic world".

The two nations "enjoy exceptional relations and the new government would further strengthen these ties", *Anadolu Agency* quoted Imran as saying.
