China, Afghanistan relations strengthening, Stanekzai

KABUL: Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Sher Mohammad Abas Stanekzai met with the Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China Zhao Sheng, here in Kabul, the ministry said in a statement yesterday. Chinese Ambassador once again conveyed the condolences of the people of China to the deputy foreign minister over the recent earthquake in Herat province and pledged more relief to send to the victims of the deadly incident, the statement said. Calling the relation between the two countries constructive and positive, Stanekzai expressed gratitude over sympathy and assistance to the victims of the earthquake. Based on the initiative of his embassy, the Chinese Ambassador raised funds for the victims and handed over $50,000 to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the victims of Herat province. A few days ago devastated earthquakes jolted Herat province, leaving at least 2,000 people dead and thousands more homeless. Twenty villages were completely destroyed, leaving the survivors with no shelter. International organizations have appealed for more aid, ahead of winter, in order to avoid an even bigger catastrophe. The Kabul Times
