Extending material support... what material does Pak have? 😂— Abhi (@abhi_nufc) February 12, 2020
Early this month Pakistan had released the statement that it will not be airlifting its students from Wuhan in interest of its loved ones.
The remark came as several Pakistani citizens posted videos on social media, pleading their government to evacuate them, while India was airlifting its students. India's foreign minister S Jaishankar has told Parliament that Pakistani students were also offered to be airlifted.
In Wuhan, around 5000 Pakistani students are currently present and are pleading for help from their government.
