Santo Domingo - A relief aid plane carrying 77 tonnes of basic relief supplies, including medicines, medical supplies food stuff from the Khalifa Bin Zayed Foundation for Haitians has landed at Las Americas Airport in the capital of the neighboring Dominican Republic.

The inbound relief flight supplies were dispatched upon directives from President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan to launch emergency operations to alleviate the suffering of millions of Haitians who were affected by last week's destructive earthquake which rocked the Caribbean nation, killing and wounding hundreds of thousands of people.

Dominican Republic Foreign Minister Carlos Morales Troncoso here received two delegations from the Khalifa Bin Zayed Foundation and the Red Crescent Authority (RCA) to discuss delivering relief supplies to those affected by the quake.

Troncoso stressed his country's readiness to receive any humanitarian assistance for Haiti in case the Port au Prince Airport could not handle all inbound airplanes carrying aid from all over the world.

The Foundation is coordinating its Haiti humanitarian operations with the Dominican authorities as well as relief international agencies such as World Food Program, Save the Children and Dominican and Haitian Red Cross societies operating in the quake-shattered Caribbean nation. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
