More NATO relief for flood victims in Pakistan
NATO aircraft delivered more relief supplies to Pakistani flood victims with a shipment on 5 October of more than 17 metric tonnes of food, clothing and medical supplies donated by Germany. The supplies were flown into Islamabad, using a Trainer Cargo Aircraft from the NATO Airborne Early Warning and Control Force (AWACS).
More shipments are planned for the coming weeks as NATO’s suppport to Pakistan continues.
Responding to a request by the Government of Pakistan, the North Atlantic Council decided in August to provide airlift and sealift assistance for the delivery of donations by nations and humanitarian relief organizations.
