Exactly one year ago, a meeting was held between military delegations from Turkey and Pakistan. The meeting took place on December 22-23. Pakistan’s Defense Minister Mian Muhammad Hilal Hussain and Turkish Army Deputy Chief of Staff Selcuk Bayraktaroglu represented the two countries.

There are many indications that the delivery of nuclear weapons to Turkey was discussed! The meeting was also attended by Ismail Demir, Head of Turkish Defense Industry and Temil Kotil, CEO of Turkish Aerospace Limited (TAI).

General Sahir Shamshad of the Pakistan Army, also met Lt. Wali Turkchi. Sources said the transfer of missile technology between the two countries was discussed, as was the purchase of Turkish UAVs from Pakistan.

“Behind the secret Turkey-Pakistan meeting is China”, Indian media reported at the time.

Erdogan has never made a secret of his desire to put Turkey in the club of nuclear-armed countries. As he said two years ago, “it is unacceptable for nuclear-armed countries to prevent Ankara from acquiring its own nuclear weapons.”

Relations involving the transfer of nuclear technology between Ankara and Islamabad go back to the Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan, “father” of Pakistan’s current nuclear weapons program, who was found to have sold many centrifuges to Iran, North Korea, Libya and possibly others between 1987 and 2002.

Basically, Pakistan is the strategic partner that helps Turkey maintain a balance between East and West. Turkey supports Pakistan’s self-determination for Kashmir, while Erdogan raised it as a top issue at the UN in September 2019.

But it is known that Turkish ballistic missiles without a nuclear warhead do not satisfy the neo-Ottoman plans of the Turkish president, who has focused on this plan like no other.

Apart from the secret nuclear factor, Turkey and Pakistan have a defense relationship, which has been on the rise since Imran Khan came to power. Pakistan and Turkey will also expand in the Eastern Mediterranean and we will see this in the next period in the axis that Ankara is preparing against the countries of the region.

Let’s not forget that a few weeks ago, Bayraktar TB2 arrived in Pakistan! Pakistan has ordered 6 units in first phase. Indian security experts, meanwhile, say growing Turkey-Pakistan ties are a matter of concern.

Let’s not forget that Turkey and Pakistan are constantly conducting exercises in the Aegean & Eastern Mediterranean. Pakistan and Turkey are getting closer.

Turkey has a traditionally good relationship with Pakistan. Essentially, Turkey sees Pakistan as a strategic ally as well as a potential partner in the production of sophisticated weapons systems. At the same time Pakistan also has a good relationship with China. Especially, regarding Turkey’s defense cooperation with Pakistan, there have been recent talks between officials again.
