DUSHANBE, May 04 /ITAR-TASS/. President of Tajikistan Emomali Rakhmov has issued a decree to extend a humanitarian aid to landslide victims in Afghanistan’s northeastern provinces, the administration of the Tajik head of state reported on Sunday.
“The humanitarian aid includes foodstuffs, goods of prime necessity, drinking water, tents,” the press service of the administration said, adding that Tajikistan was looking at sending a team of rescuers to the landslide-affected areas.
Earlier, Rakhmov sent a telegram of condolences to Afghan President Hamid Karzai. “I was deeply grieved to hear the news about a landslide in a settlement in the province of Badakhshan, which claimed hundreds of lives,” he said in the telegram. “Please convey the condolences of the Tajik brotherly people to the families of those killed. We wish tenacity and endurance to the families and people who lost their near and dear.”
Sunday is a day of mourning in Afghanistan over the victims of this natural calamity. Last week, torrential rains and landslides in Afghanistan’s northern provinces killed more than 160 people. As many as 7,000 people had to leave their homes. The infrastructure and economies of four Afghan provinces sustained big losses.
