ISLAMABAD, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- A spokesperson of Pakistan's Foreign Ministry said Thursday that a total of 23 Pakistani nationals have been evacuated from the earthquake-hit area in Türkiye.

"About 23 Pakistanis have been evacuated from Gaziantep University Türkiye and accommodated in Adana," Spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said in a weekly press briefing.

The spokesperson said 16 of them will be evacuated to Pakistan while the rest will be transported to Istanbul, adding that no casualty of any Pakistani national in the devastating earthquake has been reported so far.

Pakistan's missions in Türkiye and Syria remain in constant touch with the relevant authorities and the Pakistani community to identify any requirements for the earthquake-affected areas and to provide relief to Pakistanis, who may be affected by the earthquake, she said.

Pakistan has offered all possible support in the relief efforts to Türkiye, and the support is being delivered in the form of relief assistance and rescue and support teams, the foreign ministry spokesperson said. Enditem
