NATO humanitarian relief flights to Pakistan continue

A NATO Trainer Cargo Aircraft from the NATO Airborne Early Warning and Control Force (AWACS) arrived in Islamabad this Wednesday, 1 September. It delivered around 13 tons worth of generators, tents, boats, food and clothing donated by a non-governmental organization.

The North Atlantic Council decided earlier this month to provide airlift and sealift assistance for the delivery of donations by nations and humanitarian relief organizations, in response to a request by the Government of Pakistan.
