China will offer new aid to relieve the humanitarian crisis in the Middle East, Deputy Foreign Minister Wang Chao said on Oct 13.

Wang said at a press briefing in Beijing on that day that China has paid great attention to the refugee issue in the region.

Wang said that since the current turbulence emerged in the Middle East, China has provided a total of 375 million yuan in humanitarian aid to the region.

As the humanitarian situation in the region has become increasingly grim, China will accelerate distribution of the humanitarian aid that it has announced for West Asia and North Africa region by the end of the year. In addition, China will offer new aid for the region, Wang said.

Wang said these assistance measures will help Middle East countries improve their ability to accommodate refugees and help reduce the flow of refugees.
