It is with profound sorrow that we have learnt of the tragic mine accident, resulting in the loss of over two hundred precious lives in western Turkey, yesterday.
As our Turkish brethren mourn their national loss, the people of Pakistan stand in complete solidarity with them. We offer our deep condolences to the families of the deceased and pray for safe rescue and early recovery of the still trapped miners. The President and the Prime Minister have both sent messages of condolences to the Turkish leadership over the incident.
As a brotherly nation with an abiding relationship of love and amity, Pakistan stands ready to extend all possible support to Turkey in the relief effort.
