Parallel to our efforts aiming to be in solidarity with Iraq going through dire straits and to support the Iraqi people and in the framework of humanitarian assistance regularly made by the Turkish Government to this country, a military cargo plane is being dispatched today (18 May) to Mosul carrying 8.125 kg. of urgently needed food supplies.

This in-kind food assistance will be received by our Consulate General in Mosul which will consequently hand in the goods to the Mosul branch of the Iraqi Red Crescent to be delivered to the camps near Mosul which are populated by people who had to vacate their dwellings in the vicinity.

Our humanitarian assistance to Iraq will continue in the future.
