The Chinese government decided to provide 50 million yuan ($7.5 million) in emergency humanitarian aid—including tents, sheets, and convertible beds—to quake-hit Afghanistan for those affected by the disaster, with the first shipment of aid to be transported to the country on Monday by charter flight, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin confirmed on Saturday, Global Times reported.
China will also work closely with the Afghan interim government to ensure that aid reaches those affected in time and helps local people overcome their current difficulties, Wang said.
The food support promised by China has arrived in Afghanistan and is being distributed quickly, and China is also ready to strengthen cooperation with Afghanistan on disaster prevention and reduction, especially disaster monitoring and forecasting, Wang said.
A 5.9-magnitude earthquake jolted parts of Afghanistan, including the capital city Kabul, early Wednesday, and resulted in at least 1,500 deaths.
