Hungary has sent 10 tonnes of aid to Türkiye to help deal with the difficult situation after the earthquake, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in Ankara on Monday, according to a report by hvg.hu.
In his announcement, the Foreign Minister said that the package mainly contains equipment to help people find temporary shelter and medical care and to get through the winter.
Szijjártó explained that "when a brotherly people, a brotherly nation, gets into trouble, it is always a matter of concern for us and there was no question at all that we provided immediate assistance to Türkiye".
According to Szijjártó, the aid consignment also includes one and a half tonnes of medicine, 500 camp beds, 1,500 blankets, 600 sleeping bags, and 2,000 units of infusion equipment.
He added that talks are underway on deliveries of more medical equipment.
"So Hungary is a friend of Türkiye. It is only natural that we stand by our friends in times of need, and we will continue to provide all the help we can to ensure that the lives of the Turkish people can return to normal as soon as possible," the minister said.
