Pakistan on Sunday condoled the loss of lives in Jammu and Kashmir and offered help to India in whatever way possible to mitigate the suffering of the people affected by the floods in the state.

Prime minister Nawaz Sharif carried out an aerial survey of the affected areas in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir which is also facing the flood fury.

"The Government and the people of Pakistan express deepest condolences over the loss of precious lives of our Kashmiri brethren on both sides of the Line of Control caused by torrential rains and flash floods," foreign office spokesperson said in a statement.

It said prime minister Sharif visited the flood affected areas on Pakistani side of LoC and is monitoring relief and rescue operations.

Pakistan is ready to help India in "whatever way possible to mitigate the suffering of the people affected by the floods," the statement added.

The flood fury unleashed more death and destruction in Jammu and Kashmir, claiming the lives of nearly 150 people and leaving many marooned.
