Posts misrepresent photo of ex-Pakistan PM Khan greeting Erdogan in Pakistan

Two photos have circulated online in social media posts that claim Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan personally greeted Pakistan's former premier Imran Khan at the airport when he visited Turkey, while the current Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif was greeted by the Turkish defence minister. The posts -- shared hundreds of times -- are misleading. While the photo of Sharif has been shared in the correct context, the photo of Khan shows him greeting Erdogan in Pakistan, not Turkey, in 2020.
