KABUL (Pajhwok): China has pledged to provide $7.5 million in emergency humanitarian aid for victims of a deadly earthquake in southeastern Afghanistan.

The first shipment of aid, including tents, sheets and convertible beds, would be transported to Afghanistan on Monday by a charter flight.

Global Times quoted Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin as saying that China would work closely with the Afghan government to ensure that aid reached the affected people in time.

China’s food support has already arrived in Afghanistan and is being distributed quickly¸ the newspaper reported on Sunday.

Wang said his country was ready to boost cooperation with Afghanistan on disaster prevention and reduction, especially disaster monitoring and forecasting.

On Friday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi sent a message of condolences to his Afghan counterpart Amir Khan Muttaqi over the earthquake disaster.
