Pakistan to attend ‘Three Brothers’ military drills
Reuters Published September 12, 2021
BAKU: Azerbaijan, Turkey and Pakistan will hold joint military drills from Sept 12 to 20 in Baku, Azerbaijan’s defence ministry said on Saturday, the first such drills between the three countries.
The goal of the “Three Brothers - 2021” exercises is to improve cooperation between their special forces and to share knowledge and experience, the ministry said in a statement.
Turkey and Azerbaijan held joint live fire drills in Baku earlier this year.
Ankara last year backed Azerbaijan’s effort to drive ethnic Armenian forces out of swathes of territory they had controlled since the 1990s in and around the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

Pakistan has so much in common with India (its real elder brother), than with Turkey or others with whom they hardly have anything in common.

If we want to progress let's partner with progressive countries like Germany, Japan, UK etc. Getting close to Turkey may upset Saudi who are still one of biggest source of jobs and foreign exchange for us
