Blinken Unveils $100 Million in Aid for Turkey After Devastating Earthquakes

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has pledged long-term aid for Turkey in the wake of devastating earthquakes that have rocked the country. On Wednesday, Blinken toured the earthquake zone and unveiled an additional $100 million in aid from the U.S.

Blinken praised the response of Americans to the crisis, saying that “the United States will stand with Turkey as long as it takes.” He also noted that the U.S. has already provided $2 million in aid and is working with the international community to provide additional assistance.

The earthquakes have caused widespread destruction in the region, with more than 100 people dead and thousands injured. The U.S. has sent a team of experts to help with the recovery efforts, and Blinken said the U.S. will do whatever it can to help the people of Turkey.

The U.S. is also working with international partners to provide additional aid and support for the affected communities. The United Nations has also pledged to provide aid and assistance.

The U.S. and its partners are committed to helping Turkey recover from the earthquakes and build a stronger, more resilient nation. Blinken said that the U.S. will continue to stand with Turkey and provide whatever support it can in the coming months and years.
