21-Truck Convoy Carrying 275- Ton Relief Goods From Pakistan Reaches Turkiye

One of the worst-affected cities by the earthquake, Malatya, received a 21-truck convoy from Pakistan bringing 275 tonnes of emergency supplies. On February 6, an air bridge was promptly built between Islamabad and Ankara at the request of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in order to transport rescue crews and deliver crucial relief supplies.

On February 11, a truck convoy carrying mostly winterized tents, blankets, and other necessary humanitarian supplies departed from Pakistan and travelled through Iran to reach Turkiye.

Deputy Mayor Malatya Hakan Ezgi, Ambassador Fazli Corman of the Turkish MOFA, Deputy Ambassador Abbas Sarwar Qureshi of the Pakistan Embassy, Commander Mehmet Bhaktiyar, and representatives from the AFAD and local government received the convoy.

Goods for emergency relief have been delivered to Turkiye on twenty planes.
A ship bound for Turkiye from Pakistan is also soon to depart with supplies for earthquake victims. Abbas Sarwar Qureshi, speaking at the event, noted that Pakistan and Turkey have a long history of supporting each other throughout all situations.
