Taking to Twitter, PM Imran Khan said, “We stand with the government and people of Turkey and share in their sorrow at the tragic loss of life in the wildfires tragedy”.

The forest inferno on Turkey’s southern coast has claimed at least four lives so far, according to a report published in Reuters.
