Prime Minister and Interior Minister HE Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani sent a cable of condolences to HE Prime Minister of the Republic of India Narendra Modi on the victims of the floods which swept the State of Kerala, wishing the injured a speedy recovery.

Meanwhile, Qatar Charity, through its representative in India, has launched emergency relief for those affected by the huge floods in the Indian state of Kerala with a total value of half a million riyals for the first stage.
