Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Friday visited the earthquake-stricken Adıyaman City in Turkiye and met affected families.

In Adiyaman, the prime minister interacted with the quake victims and expressed solidarity on the part of Pakistan.


The prime minister once again assured full support to the earthquake victims of Turkiye, saying that we will stand by them.

Shahbaz Sharif said that Pakistan was earlier sending tents, blankets and food stuff to Turkiye but we have changed our strategy and now we will be focusing on sending winterized tents.

The prime minister said that he will hold a meeting back home tomorrow (Saturday) with all potential tent manufacturers in order to make a concrete plan for speedy manufacturing of high quality and fire proof tents. He said that these will then be shipped through air, land and sea routes.

The prime minister said that he has entrusted the responsibility of this project to the Chairman of National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA). He assured the tents will be dispatched to Turkiye without waste of time.

Shahbaz Sharif also recalled how the Turkish leadership and people supported Pakistan in the wake of 2005 earthquake in Pakistan.

Expressing confidence that Turkiye will come out of the crisis under the leadership of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the prime minister also urged the international community including the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to come forward for the rescue and relief of earthquake victims of Turkiye.

Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif also handed over to the Turk authorities the relief items sent by Pakistan.
