China to provide $4.7 mn flood assistance to Pak

China will provide emergency humanitarian aid worth 30 million yuan to Pakistan as a token of friendship.



Beijing: China on Tuesday announced a USD 4.7
million assistance to provide relief to Pakistan flood
victims, in response to call for international aid by Pakistan
President Asif Ali Zardari.

China will provide emergency humanitarian aid worth 30
million yuan (about USD 4.7 million) to Pakistan as a token of
friendship between the two countries, Chinese Foreign Ministry
spokesperson Jiang Yu told a media briefing here today.

"We hope the (relief) materials will be helpful for
Pakistan in overcoming its calamity," Jiang said, adding that
China believes the Pakistani government and people can conquer
the flood and rebuild their homes.

Zardari had last week appealed to the international
community to provide assistance for millions of people who
have been affected by monsoon rains and flooding in southern
Pakistan.

China had provided over USD 200 million aid during the
last year`s floods in Pakistan, regarded as one of the largest
relief assistance Beijing has provided to any country.
