The first humanitarian aid group from China landed in Afghanistan last night.
“The first aid team was handed over, mainly warm materials such as blankets and cotton clothes,” Wang Yu, the Chinese ambassador to Afghanistan, said on social media.
Afghan Refugee Minister Khalil Haqqani has accepted the delivery of aid at Kabul airport.
“The aid shows the deep love and friendship of the Chinese people to the Afghan people and reflects China’s role as a great country that keeps its promises and is kind to its neighbors, which is a great move to build a community with a future of “common to humanity,” said Wang.
Earlier this month, China pledged $ 31 million in humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, which ended the war with the withdrawal of all foreign forces in August after the Taliban regained control of the war-torn country.
Beijing will focus on the winter needs of the Afghan people and will include cereal foods, vaccine supplies and medicines.
Humanitarian aid to Afghanistan comes at a time when the United Nations (UN) has warned of a major humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.
On September 13, the international body hosted a major fundraising conference in Geneva, where over $ 1 billion in funding was pledged from various countries to help the Afghan people.
Beijing has emerged as a leading critic of the United States, accusing it of being “guilty of the Afghan issue.”
“Afghanistan is an independent sovereign state. The United States must respect Afghanistan’s sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity. “The drone strike that killed ten people in Kabul is just the ‘tip of the iceberg’ of all those tragedies and crimes committed by the United States,” said Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for China’s Foreign Ministry.
As she put it, “as the culprit in the Afghan affair,” the United States must bear its responsibility and stop routine and improper military intervention.AA
