No list has been sent as of now, the Prime Minister noted
At a briefing here on Monday, caretaker Prime Minister Galab Donev said Bulgaria is ready to provide additional humanitarian aid to the victims of the earthquake in Turkiye upon request from the Turkish side, but is waiting to receive a list of what they need, including tents, water, food and medicine, in order to fully support the victims. No list has been sent as of now, the Prime Minister noted, adding that the Bulgarian authorities are in constant touch with Turkiye and are monitoring the situation.
Bulgaria is ready to provide any assistance - both with equipment and people. Specialised teams have already responded and Monday morning left with two Spartan aircraft to assist local authorities in clearing the rubble and searching for people trapped under it, Donev said.
"We have sent 73 rescuers, over 30 units of specialized equipment to clean up the aftermath of this severe earthquake, five dogs from the Bulgarian Red Cross. The government, together with Sofia Municipality and the Bulgarian Red Cross, reacted swiftly to provide the necessary support to rescue the earthquake survivors," Donev noted.
"So far, we have not received any request from Syria for assistance. Our teams are mainly focused in Turkiye," Donev added.
