It is with profound sadness that we learnt of the tragic mine accident in western Turkey, resulting in large scale deaths and injuries.
As Turkey mourns the selfless sacrifice of so many of its martyred sons, we, in Pakistan, stand united with our Turkish brethren in their sorrow and grief.
I take this opportunity to convey our deepest condolences to the bereaved families for their irreparable loss and sincere prayers for complete and early recovery of the injured.
Throughout human history, moments like these have engendered not only anguish and despair but also hope and regeneration; for nations have strengthened their resolve to successfully mitigate pains of affliction.
I have no doubt that with its indomitable spirit, the brotherly nation of Turkey would emerge even stronger from this calamity.
Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
“H.E. Mr. Ahmet Davutoglu,
Foreign Minister of the Republic of Turkey,
