Rs10 Billion Allocated for Quake-Hit Turkey, Announces PM Shehbaz Sharif

The federal government has allotted Rs 10 billion to support Turkey’s earthquake relief operations, according to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who also said that Pakistan will continue to support the disaster-stricken nation on a daily basis.


About 21,000 people have died as of this writing as a deadly 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria early on Monday dimmed hopes of finding more survivors.


The prime minister declared that Pakistan will never leave Turkey in these circumstances while urging the country to pray for the earthquake victims during today’s Friday prayers while speaking at an airport in Lahore where relief supplies were being sent for the earthquake victims.
