Abstract: Pakistan and Turkey are important regional countries. Pakistan has assumed special status in the region due to its geostrategic location. After 9/11, Pakistan has become a front line non-NATO state in the region. Turkey, on the hand, is emerging as a global power. For more than seven decades, Pakistan and Turkey have been enjoying brotherly relationships which are embedded in the same cultural and historical heritage going back to the period of Ottoman Empire. These relationships are getting stronger and stronger with the passage of time. The manifold commonalties between the two countries have been reinforced by the firm resolve of their leadership to further deepen mutual cooperation in all fields. Both countries carry different ideologies; Turkey follows secularism while Pakistan adopts Islamism. Since creation of Pakistan, both countries have supported each other in times of need. The recent improvement in trade ties particularly in defense sector, have reached to new heights. However, there is more potential for both countries besides military cooperation. Previous studies on the relationship between Pakistan and Turkey are not critically analyzed, which create a dire need to reassess the Pakistan Turkey association. This research work is an effort to have a situational analysis regarding the emerging key trends, strategic options and the latest developments in relations between Pakistan and Turkey. It encompasses the descriptive and analytical approaches, while analyzing critically the relationship between Pakistan and Turkey for the period 1999-2019.
