This, the statement said, is the first international delegation to visit the Valley after the devastating floods.

Informing the delegation about the loss of life and property, Mirwaiz said the international aid for the rehabilitation is need of the hour.

Mirwaiz said he has already made appeals to the globally acknowledged financial institutions including Islamic Development Bank (IDB), Asian Development Bank (ADB) and World Bank to extend financial support in rebuilding flood ravaged J&K. He hoped that apart from, OIC and UN, the Islamic Republic Iran will also come forward to help the J&K.
