The Embassy of Bosnia-Herzegovina in Ankara, has no information if there are Bosnian citizens wounded in the devastating earthquake that struck Turkey on Friday.
As it is stated to Federal News Agency by Nebojsa Regoje, Head of the Public Relations Office of the Bosnian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFABiH), none of Bosnian citizens approached the Embassy with a request for assistance.
Regoje added that the Embassy is monitoring the situation and is in constant contact with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkey and other competent authorities.
“Embassy of Bosnia-Herzegovina in Ankara is ready, if the need arises, to provide consular assistance under its responsibility,” Regoje said.
Rescue workers raced against time Saturday to find survivors under the rubble after a powerful earthquake claimed 22 lives and left more than 1,000 injured in eastern Turkey.
The magnitude 6.8 quake struck on Friday evening, with its epicentre in the small lakeside town of Sivrice in Elazig province, and was felt in neighbouring countries.
