Washington, DC - October 9, 2005 -- United States President George W. Bush meets with Mohammad Sadiq, Deputy Chief of Mission of the Pakistan Embassy.  The President stated in his remarks:  " I would like to thank the Pakistan Embassy for coming by to brief me on the tragedy that has taken place in that country.  I was just told that this is going to be the worst natural disaster in the nation's history;  thousands of people have died; thousands are wounded, and the United States of America wants to help.  I spoke to President Musharraf.  I expressed our nation's deepest condolences.  And I told him that we want to help in any way we can.  To that end, we've already started to send cash money and other equipment and goods that is going to be needed to help the people in Pakistan.  Moving eight choppers over; the Chargé told me that one of the biggest concerns for the government of Pakistan is not enough airlift capacity to get to some of these rural areas where people are suffering.  So we're moving choppers. Secretary Rumsfeld is surveying the assets that he may be able to move in the area.  We're working with Pakistan at all levels of government.  Pakistan is a friend of the United States government and the people of the United States will help as best as we possibly can.  So I appreciate you coming by. Finally, as I told the President -- President Musharraf -- I said there are a lot of Americans who will be asking for the Almighty God's blessings on the people of Pakistan. Thank you all."<br />
