Today, Tuesday, South Korea’s National Assembly passed a resolution calling for urgent action to support those affected by the earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria last Monday.

According to Yonhap agency, the decision was made at the plenary session of the assembly with the support of 228 deputies out of 229, while one deputy abstained from voting.

The resolution aims to support rescue and recovery operations in the two countries and provide security measures for Korean migrants, students and travelers. He also calls for mourning the victims and comforting their families.

Lawmakers also agreed to donate 3 percent of their salaries to support earthquake victims.

Earlier this week, President Yoon Seok-yeol ordered the government to mobilize all available resources to provide maximum assistance to earthquake-hit Turkey. Seoul also sent a disaster relief team to Turkey, and eight people were rescued there.
