Metro Matters Li Bijian hands over relief funds from Hubei and Shanghai to CM
Li Bijian, Consul General of China at Karachi met with Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali during the week and handed over the disaster relief funds and condolence letters from the Shanghai Municipal People’s Government for the Karachi Municipal Government. Zhang Hao, Deputy Consul General of the Consulate General, Yang Guangyuan, Economic and Commercial Counselor were also present in the meeting.
Consul General Li introduced the assistance provided by China to assist Pakistan in fighting floods and disasters for some time. Li said that China and Pakistan are brothers who share weal and woe. Since the flood, Chinese people from all walks of life have provided assistance to Pakistan of up to 644 million yuan.
A few days ago, an expert group formed by the Ministry of Emergency Management of China and the Guangxi People’s Government has arrived in Karachi and has been involved in disaster assessment, post-disaster reconstruction planning, and medical rescue guidance. Local governments have also taken active actions to provide immediate assistance to twinning provinces through different channels.
This time, Hubei Province and Shanghai Municipality donated disaster relief funds to the sister province of Sindh and the sister city of Karachi respectively, which once again demonstrated the unbreakable “iron” friendship between China and Pakistan. The Chinese side believes that the Pakistani government and people will definitely be able to tide over the difficulties and rebuild their homeland at an early date.
CM Sindh spoke highly of China’s firm support and assistance to Pakistan in fighting the flood and disaster relief, sincerely thanked Hubei Province and Shanghai for their selfless assistance, and asked relevant departments to closely cooperate with the Chinese expert group in their work and take all necessary measures to ensure the expert group’s work in Pakistan. Shah said that Pakistan and China are sincere partners and die-hard brothers, China has given Pakistan a lot of selfless guidance and assistance, whether it is assisting Pakistan in fighting floods and disaster relief or building the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
