Turkey Offers Help to Flood-hit Greece

Turkey is ready to help Greece following deadly floods in Athens, according to a Turkish foreign ministry statement released early Thursday.

“Turkey, in solidarity with Greece, is ready to provide any kind of assistance,” the statement reads.

The floods killed at least 15 people Wednesday after torrential rains struck the Attica region.

“We learned with sorrow that the floods that hit the Attica region of Greece on 15 November 2017, caused loss of life and material damage,” said the ministry.

Ankara extended its “sincere condolences to the relatives of those who lost their lives as well as to the Greek people, and wish speedy recovery to the injured,” it added.
