On the instructions of Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif, Pakistan dispatched one C-130 plane to Mazar-e-Sharif, carrying emergency relief items for the people of Afghanistan hit by flash floods, today. The items included tents, flour, rice and sugar.
A second plane-load of food and shelter items would be sent in a few days as a gesture of goodwill for the flood victims in Afghanistan.
Pakistan as a neighbouring country has been at the forefront of efforts for provision of humanitarian assistance for the Afghan people and hopes that the international community would also play its active part in providing timely relief and economic assistance to the affected people in Afghanistan.
