Pakistan on Saturday extended condolences to India and Bangladesh over the human losses and destruction after severe cyclonic storm Amphan killed dozens in both countries and displaced thousands in recent days.
“The Government and people of Pakistan are saddened over the deaths and widespread devastation caused by Cyclone Amphan in Bangladesh and India,” Pakistan’s foreign ministry said in a statement.
“We extend sympathies and condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones and pray for speedy recovery of the affected regions,” it said.
On Friday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi conveyed condolences to Pakistan over a passenger plane crash in Karachi.
Modi said in a twitter post that “deeply saddened by the loss of life due to a plane crash in Pakistan. Our condolences to the families of the deceased, and wishing speedy recovery to those injured.”
Tensions heightened between Pakistan and India after India scrapped special status to the Indian-controlled Kashmir in August 2019.
Pakistan rejected the Indian government’s decision as illegal and violation of the United Nations resolutions.
