Ankara says the help sent to India to defeat COVID-19 is rooted in historic bilateral ties

Turkey on Thursday recollected Mahatma Gandhi’s support to its liberation struggle and said the assistance sent to India to defeat COVID-19 was rooted in historic bilateral ties. Ankara sent assistance on Wednesday following telephone conversation between External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar and his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu.
Turkish assistance consisted of 50 MT of medical supplies including 5 oxygen generators, 680 oxygen cylinders, 50 ventilators and 50,000 boxes of anti-viral medicine. The consignments were sent on board two A400M military cargo aircraft. A statement from the Embassy of Turkey informed that Mr. Cavusoglu offered to send the assistance during the telephone conversation held on April 26.
The statement cited India’s past support to landmark events in Turkey’s history which built bilateral relations.
“The assistance and contribution of Indian people and the prominent Indian figures like the father of the Indian nation — Mahatma Gandhi who collected funds to support Turkey’s Liberation War between 1919-1923, and Dr. Mukhtar Ahmad Ansari who led the medical mission to Ottoman Empire and set up field hospitals to treat wounded Ottoman soldiers during the Balkan War in 1912 are still very much alive in the memories of Turkish people,” a press release from the Embassy of Turkey stated.

Yup exactly. Hopefully India get over this corona mess soon. I am sure Turkey or any other country will send more medical aid if situation remains worse.

Too small.
Net worth of this package is just 1.7 million dollar
This shows there is no alternative to building massive industrial base.....maybe, India could built such items herself had it encouraged industry......easing labour laws etc....but India produces too many communists / liberals for its own good.

Thanks Turkiye. Help is help in whichever form it comes be it small or huge.
Grateful for all help....however, is that all turkey could help with?
Wait till he tells you about 3 trillion dollar economy, world fastest growing GDP and Billionaires in India. Super power Ftw !
You guys (pakistanis) are having a great time posting such posts, when India is in an unfortunate crisis.

Pakistan (read pakistanis) will never be of any help / use to india.

Not sure why pak army did not attack India. Definitely not because of any humanitarian reasons.
