A natural disaster that sent shockwaves across communites struck Turkey and west of Syria on 6 February. The tragedy is like no other.

Thousands of valuable  lives were lost  to the earthquake.  The disaster has caused destruction  on wide scale. We too have experience natural disasters in the past. Calamities of this kind, no matter where they occur, are deeply saddening to us as humans. Even so, rather than remaining unperturbed, we have actively offered all possible disaster relief,  at all such times.

Our country has already made preparations to reach disaster relief and medical aid to the disaster-struck regionsin Turkey and Syria. In this regard, we are ready to provide all possible assistance from our state. As a state, we too are willing to provide whatever help be  possible on our side. We  have join hands with world to help reinstate normalcy to the devastated land and its people.
