New team and 55 tons of aid from South Korea to Turkey.
In the statement made by the South Korean government, it was reported that a new aid team consisting of mostly health workers and 55 tons of aid materials will be sent to Turkey.
Aid is pouring into Turkey after the earthquakes that took place in the Pazarcık and Elbistan districts of Kahramanmaraş on February 6 and caused great destruction in the surrounding provinces. South Korean Foreign Minister Park Jin announced that the Seoul administration will send a new team of at least 20 people, mostly healthcare workers, and 55 tons of humanitarian aid to Turkey. It has been learned that two military transport planes and a commercial plane will be mobilized for the aid expected to depart this week.
After the earthquakes, South Korea sent a team of 121 people to Turkey, at the same time the government announced an aid package of 5 million dollars.
YOON GIVEN INSTRUCTIONS
South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol had instructed the government earlier this week to mobilize all available resources to provide Turkey with as much earthquake support as possible . Describing Turkey as “an ally and brotherly nation acquired by blood,” it was publicized that Yoon called for action to provide not only emergency aid but also reconstruction support.
