“China continues to support Pakistan’s flood relief efforts. Today, the first shipment of flood relief supplies via Khunjrab was transported to Great Britain.
I would like to express my gratitude to the Xinjiang leadership for this kind and timely assistance,” he wrote in a tweet.
Luo Zhaohui, the chairman of China’s International Development Cooperation Agency, has pledged an additional RMB 300 million in aid for Pakistan’s flood victims.
Additionally, he promised to provide 200 tonnes of veggies to those affected by the floods along the Karakoram Highway within a week.
