Pakistani-Afghan summit to take place in Istanbul this week
This is the first ever visit of a Sri Lankan president to Turkey.
During the press conference, Gul hoped that this visit would further improve bilateral relations and expressed expectation that the trade volume would reach 100 million USD by the end of 2008.
Also talking about a note India gave to Pakistan due to terrorist attacks on its territories, Gul said that a Pakistani-Afghan summit to take place in Istanbul this week would mainly focus on Asia's security, Afghanistan's future and settlement of Afghan-Pakistani problem through friendship.
The Turkish president said the dynamics of that region were very different and expressed belief that the meeting would yield positive results.
Before the press conference, two countries signed agreements on extradition of criminals and air transportation, reported World Bulletin.
