Diplomatic relations between our country and Pakistan were established in 1947, immediately following the establishment of Pakistan and due to the special importance paid to relations to Pakistan, Yahya Kemal Beyatlı, a renowned poet, was appointed as the first Turkish Ambassador to Karachi, then the capital city of Pakistan, at the beginning of the year 1948. Our Embassy in Pakistan has been operating since then, without any interruption. The construction of the Embassy’s Chancellery and the Ambassador’s Residence, which are currently used and owned by the Turkish state, was completed in August 2004.
