New Delhi : Pakistan Government is trying all their efforts to ensure their good terms with their quake hit nation Turkey. However, it appears like they were left red faced after they sent relief material to Turkey. A news report claims that Pakistan sent relief material to Turkey which they had received when it was ravaged by floods in June 2022. Turkey and Syria suffered a major 7.8 magnitude earthquake on February 6th.
The reports on the internet claim that relief material sent to Turkey were the ones that Turkey itself sent to Sindh province during the floods. It has also been claimed that Pakistan changed the box outside but forgot to change the boxes inside.
Inside the box, the message was written that these material was sent by people of Turkey to the people of Pakistan to help them fight the devastating effects of the flood, while the boxes outside carried the message that these material are sent to the people of Turkey by the people of Pakistan to cope up with the earthquake.
Matter has also been discussed in the local media outlets, which express their disappointment with the government over the incident.
Earlier, Turkey had refused to host Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif claiming that they are only welcoming the relief help from other nations at this moment of tragedy. The move was also criticised by the Pakistani media as the taxpayers many walls being used for this special visit at a time when Pakistan is dealing with huge economic crisis.
However, Sharif meet the visit on Friday and meet Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and conveyed his "heartfelt condolence" over the damage and loss of precious lives during earthquake.
