The Republic of Azerbaijan shows solidarity with brotherly Türkiye in the direction of eliminating the consequences of the devastating earthquake that occurred on February 6, 2023, in the Kahramanmaras province of the Republic of Türkiye and surrounding provinces, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs told APA.

In order to provide support for search-rescue operations in the earthquake region, according to the instruction of Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev, the 420-person rescue team of the Ministry of Emergency Situations (MES) with relevant equipment and search dogs, were seen off Turkiye on February 6 and have already started their activity.

Moreover, in order to eliminate the consequences of the earthquake, a mobile field hospital equipped with necessary medical equipment and supplies and a 41-person team of MES, including 34 medical and 7 non-medical personnel, have already left for Turkiye.

Under the instructions of President Ilham Aliyev, a group of military medical personnel of the Azerbaijan Army, including 10 military doctors and 8 nurses, are in the fraternal country now.

Operational Headquarters are working in the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in the Republic of Turkiye and in the Consulates General in the cities of Istanbul and Kars to identify and evacuate the citizens of the Republic of Azerbaijan affected by the earthquake.

Based on the gained information and the citizen appeals received by the hotlines, which operate 24 hours a day and are answered by employees, Azerbaijani citizens who reside in provinces (Kahramanmaraş, Hatay, Adana, Malatya, Gaziantep, Adiyaman, Şanliurfa, Kilis, Osmaniye, Diyarbakir, Elazig, and Mersin) of Türkiye’s that were subjected to destruction, or temporarily in there, are listed.
