Islamabad, March 01, 2015 (PPI-OT): ”I was deeply troubled upon learning of the devastating avalanches in Afghanistan that have taken hundreds of our Afghan brother and sisters from us. I join you in praying for them and their families. ”I have instructed Pakistan’s National Disaster Management Authority to provide whatever support it can and we have already deployed multiple convoys to airlift support to Afghanistan.
”I am confident that your leadership at this time is of even more importance than during ordinary times. The Pakistani people and our resources stand available to you as always. I also want to assure you that my staff is keeping me apprised of the situation on an hourly basis. InshaAllah we will not sleep peacefully until we know that this crisis has passed.”
