Another eight Hungarian doctors specialising in rescue work related to natural disasters are ready to join our group," said Berek, adding that the rescue service has contacted the Interior Ministry and the Foreign Affairs Ministry concerning the earthquake.

"We're ready to hit the road immediately if necessary," said Berek.
