China stands solidly behind Pakistan amid floods


China stands solidly behind Pakistan amid floods, as the Chinese Embassy is highly active these days to support Pakistan at this hour of distress.

According to a report published by Gwadar Pro on Sunday, Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Nong Rong held several meetings over the weekend to discuss the flood situation with the Pakistani leaders and hand over Chinese donations to the Pakistani government.

The Chinese envoy held meetings among others with federal ministers Shazain Bugti and Ahsan Iqbal to assure China’s unwavering support during this difficult time.

“Had a fruitful discussion with Shahzain Bugti, Minister for Narcotic’s Control. He highly appreciated the emergency humanitarian assistance from the Chinese government for flood relief, including to Balochistan. We are with Pak in times of difficulties,” Ambassador Nong Rong tweeted after a meeting on Saturday afternoon.

Earlier, the envoy held a meeting with Federal Minister Ahsan Iqbal, Minister of Planning, Development and Special Initiatives. He tweeted as he handed over the Pakistani Rs 15 million donation to PM Relief Fund by Chinese companies. “China is always together with Pakistan to overcome the flood disaster and pull through at an early date,” Ambassador Nong Rong added. A few days earlier, China expressed deep condolences and sympathies with the victims of flash floods in Balochistan.—INP
