ISLAMABAD: The Chinese government on Monday decided to provide an emergency humanitarian aid worth 10 million yuan to the Pakistan government to help in its relief efforts in the flood-hit areas.

According to a Spokesman of China’s embassy in Pakistan, the decision to extend assistance for flood relief and rescue in Pakistan is a reflection of the friendship that the Chinese Government and people have with the Pakistani Government and people.

Meanwhile, Diplomats and staff members of Chinese Embassy in Islamabad voluntarily donated Rs 600,000 to help the flood-affected people in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.

The donation was made as a good-will gesture and to express solidarity and sympathy with the affected people.

Chinese Ambassador Liu Jian traveled to Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and met the local officials Saturday afternoon.

The Ambassador expressed his condolences to the victims of the flood and his gratitude to the Pakistan government and people for their help in evacuating the flood-stranded Chinese workers and searching for the missing.

Liu handed over the donation and requested that it be immediately passed on to the flood-afflicted people.

HIGHLIGHTS
  • Conserving gas resources
    The total disconnect our policymakers have with the working populace of Pakistan is shocking.
  • Lack of foresight
    The area of devastation is large and in many parts the rescue and emergency teams are still not able to operate.
