Pakistan Ready to Help Iran in Its Relief Efforts after the Flood

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan once again expressed its sympathy for Iran following the devastating floods and extended its offer of humanitarian support to the Islamic Republic in relief efforts, IRNA reported Monday.
Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Faisal said in a Twitter message on Monday that the Pakistani people stand in solidarity with the Iranian brothers in Iran at this difficult time.
“Pakistan is ready to provide humanitarian aid to #Iran as part of its rescue efforts,” he said.
He added that Pakistan was suffering from the continuing devastation and loss of life caused by the sudden floods in Iran. “Our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased and injured,” he said.
In a tweet, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan said Pakistan was ready to provide all the necessary humanitarian aid to Iran.
“Our prayers are going to the people of Iran as they face unprecedented floods. We are ready to provide all the required humanitarian aid,” he said in a tweet.
At the same time, Pakistani political and religious groups have also launched a campaign across the country and abroad to collect humanitarian aid to help the Iranian populations hit by the floods.
Unprecedented rainfall has caused flooding in different parts of Iran in the past two weeks. Dozens of people were killed and 478 were injured, while a large number of people were displaced across Iran.
The disaster coincided with the high season of the Iranians’ trips as they spent the two-week national holiday in Nawruz.
