The prime ministers of Turkey and Pakistan on Tuesday pledged to strengthen their traditionally warm ties and underlined their commitment to fighting terrorism, the Anatolia news agency reported. "We have no problems when it comes to the military, economic or cultural fields... We have a common will and determination to further advance our bilateral ties," Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey told a joint news conference with his visiting counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani. The Turkish leader said they had agreed to rapidly increase their bilateral trade volume to one billion dollars and recalled that Turkey had submitted a bid in a Pakistani tender to modernize the country's F-16 fighter jet fleet. The two sides are also working on a defense agreement, Erdogan said without providing details.
