LAHORE: Türkiye (formerly Turkey) on Tuesday dispatched its third flood relief goods train from Ankara for Pakistan.

The country had earlier sent its first relief goods train to Pakistan on Aug 30, followed by the second on Sept 1.

“Turkiye has sent the third train carrying relief goods for the flood-hit people. Now all three trains are on their way to Zahedan (Iran) where Pakistan Railways (PR) authorities will receive them one by one and shift the goods to Taftan and then Dalbandin after transshipment of the goods. The first train has already entered Iran’s territory and is likely to reach Zahedan on Sept 9 and Taftan/Dalbandin on Sept 12,” an official source told Dawn on Tuesday.

“The relief goods coming to Pakistan on these trains include tents, blankets, food packages, flour, clothes and other items required to the affectees,” he added.
