NATO has agreed to coordinate an airlift of aid supplies from Europe to Pakistan, following Saturday's devastating earthquake.
The announcement came after ambassadors of the NATO countries met in Brussels on Tuesday in response to a Pakistani request for aid.
The alliance said the first plane will deliver nearly eight-tons of relief supplies to Pakistan Wednesday.
Meanwhile, more supply-carrying U.S. planes are scheduled to arrive in Pakistan on Tuesday.
The U.S. military's Central Command says C-130 and C-17 aircraft will transport 30 pallets of supplies to an airfield near Islamabad.
It says a delivery on Monday weighed more than 40-thousand kilograms, and included food, water, medicine, and blankets.
The military also says eight U.S. helicopters are taking supplies to earthquake-stricken areas and evacuating injured people.
The United States has announced an initial emergency aid contribution of up to 50-million-dollars.
Meanwhile, the United Nations has appealed for 272-million-dollars to provide emergency relief and to address early recovery needs.
