Russian, Armenian rescuers deliver humanitarian aid to flood-hit Iran
2019-04-10 10:36:04

Rescuers from Russia and Armenia delivered humanitarian aid to Iranian victims of large-scale floods, a Russian Emergencies Ministry spokesperson told Sputnik.

"A convoy of the Russian-Armenian humanitarian center successfully delivered humanitarian aid to the Islamic Republic of Iran," the spokesperson said. The next cargo will be transferred to the Iranian Red Crescent Society, he added.

The cargo included over 4,000 tents, blankets and folding beds purchased at the expense of Russia.

In late March, Iran faced flash floods triggered by heavy rains. The floods have affected at least 25 out of 31 Iranian provinces, damaging infrastructure and washing away roads.
