Remarks by Prime Minister Imran Khan at Ataturk Mausoleum

It is a matter of great honour for me to be present here to pay homage to one of the greatest statesmen and visionary leaders of the 20th Century – Ghazi Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

Leading the Turkish nation at one of the most challenging times, he changed the course of Turkish, and indeed the world history, becoming an inspiration for all those resisting the tide of colonialism across the world. He was the epitome of courage, strength, resilience, forbearance, and wisdom.

Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, described Ghazi Mustafa Kemal Ataturk as “one of the greatest men that ever lived”.

On behalf of the Government and people of Pakistan, I would like to convey my deepest admiration and respect for Ghazi Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

His glorious struggle and leadership for the independence and unity of the Turkish nation will forever remain a golden chapter in the annals of history.”
