ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has offered humanitarian assistance to India after floods wreak havoc in its southern state Kerala.
According to reports, the death toll rose to nearly 400 in Kerala after its worst flood in a century, as authorities handed out medicine and disinfectants to ward off disease in thousands of relief camps.
PM Imran Khan in his tweet on Thursday, Imran has said that on behalf of the people of Pakistan, we send our prayers and best wishes to those who have been devastated by the floods in Kerala, India. We stand ready to provide any humanitarian assistance that may be needed.
The state, ruled by the communist party, has received just a third of the immediate assistance of 20 billion rupees ($285 million) it sought from the federal government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
