Iran floods: Pakistan PM offers humanitarian assistance

IRNA – Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan offered humanitarian assistance to Iran to help the victims of devastating floods in the Islamic Republic.

Prime Minister Imran in a tweet on Sunday said ‘our prayers go to the people of Iran as they deal with unprecedented flooding’.

‘We stand ready to provide any humanitarian assistance required,’ he said.

Earlier Pakistan had also extended deepest condolences and sympathies on the loss of human lives caused by heavy rains and flash floods in several provinces of Iran.

Meanwhile, Pakistani political and religious groups have launched a campaign across the country and abroad to collect humanitarian aid to help Iranian flood-stricken people.

Unprecedented heavy rains caused floods in various parts of Iran over past two weeks. Scores of people were killed and 478 others were injured while a large number of people were displaced across Iran.

The disaster coincided with the high season of Iranians’ trips as they were spending the national two-week holidays of Nowruz.
