Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday thanked his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi for his concern over the human and material losses caused by the devastating floods in the country.

Taking to Twitter, Shehbaz Sharif said Pakistan will overcome the adverse effects of the natural calamity.

“I thank Indian PM Narendra Modi for condolences over the human & material losses caused by floods. With their characteristic resilience the people of Pakistan shall, InshaAllah, overcome the adverse effects of this natural calamity and rebuild their lives and communities,” Shehbaz Sharif tweeted.

Prime Minister Modi on Monday said he was saddened to see the devastation caused by the floods in Pakistan.

”Saddened to see the devastation caused by the floods in Pakistan. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims, the injured and all those affected by this natural calamity and hope for an early restoration of normalcy,” PM Modi had tweeted.

Pakistan is grappling with unprecedented floods that has displaced over 33 million people in the country. The torrential rain since mid-June has affected the normal life of people in the country.

According to health experts, around five million people in flood-hit Pakistan, including children, may fall sick due to the outbreak of water-borne and vector-borne diseases such as typhoid and diarrhea in the next four to 12 weeks, reported news agency PTI.

Due to the floods, 1,100 people have been killed so far.

The cash-strapped Pakistan government has teamed up with the United Nations to issue an urgent appeal for $160 million to deal with the disaster.
