Turkish Ambassador to India Firat Sunel referred to New Delhi as "dost" and posted a Turkish proverb about "Dosti" shortly after the Center sent its first shipment of humanitarian supplies to earthquake-stricken Turkey (friendship).
Firat Sunel stated on Twitter that "dost is a frequent word in Turkish and Hindi... There is a Turkish saying that goes, "Dost kara gnde belli olur" (a friend in need is a friend indeed). I appreciate you, India.
It's a question of life or death, therefore we appreciate India's rapid response, he said.
According to Firat Sunel, he also met with representatives from the NDRF and the Ministry of External Affairs. This morning, a plane carrying an Indian expert in rescue operations landed.
50 staff and supplies are already en route to Turkey on a second plane from India, the speaker said.
"PM Modi and I had a meeting. I also had a meeting with NDRF and MEA representatives. We sincerely appreciate India's fast and earnest assistance,” Sunel continued.
Turkish aid from India
The first shipment of earthquake relief supplies has been sent from India to Turkey through an Indian Air Force (IAF) aircraft.
A National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) search and rescue team, highly trained dog squads, medical supplies, drilling equipment, and other essential relief instruments were all included in the consignment.
Turkey was recently reached by an IAF C-17 flight carrying troops and supplies for the national disaster response force (NDRF).
External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar tweeted, "First Indian C17 flight with more than 50 @NDRFHQ Search and Rescue workers, specially trained dog squads, drilling machines, relief material, medications, and other necessary utilities and equipment arrives Adana, Turkey."
The minister continued, "India expresses its sympathy at this difficult time.”
The most recent reports indicate that the terrible earthquakes in Turkey and Syria have already claimed the lives of more than 5,000 people. Three severe earthquakes with magnitudes of 7.8, 7.6, and 6.0 struck Turkey in quick succession.
According to Fuat Oktay, vice president of Turkey, 3,419 people have died nationwide as a result of Monday's earthquake, and at least 20,534 more have been hurt.
