Beijing: Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi received a humanitarian donation of USD 1 million from the Pakistani government during a meeting with Pakistan`s Ambassador Masood Khalid.
A 6.6-magnitude quake hit northwest Gansu province on Monday, leaving 95 dead and over 1,000 injured.
Calling Pakistan a devoted friend of China, Wang said: "A friend in need is a friend indeed."
He recalled Pakistan`s donation of more than 20,000 tents to China during the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008.
Despite facing difficulties in its own economy, Pakistan is again providing assistance to China, which demonstrates the brotherhood between the two countries, he said.
