UAE relief assistance for Afghans arrive in Iran

posted on 22/10/2001: 589 views


A fourth planeload of UAE relief assistance to the Afghan refugees in Iran arrived here today as part of an air bridge organised by the UAE Red Crescent Society, RCS, to deliver relief supplies to the refugees in line with the directives of President H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.



The plane, which was accompanied by an RCS delegation, headed by Suhail Al Qadhi, Director of the Fujairah branch of the RCS, was received on arrival here by Yunus Ani, Director of Iran's RCS in Meshhad, some members of the UAE RCS already in the town and a number of officials from the Iranian RCS. According to Al Qhadi, the plane had brought 40 tonnes of various kinds of relief items, which the refugees may be in dire need of. He said the relief assistance reflects the UAE's support for "our Muslim brothers in Afghanistan”. This brings to 200 tonnes the total quantity of relief items delivered to the refugees in an air bridge covered by four planes.



Meanwhile a delegation from the UAE RCS visited here yesterday the Mashhad premises of the Iranian RCS. A meeting was held between the two sides to discuss a number of issues related to the Afghan refugees. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
