KABUL — The government on Dec 21 provided non-emergency humanitarian supplies to the Afghan government to assist the vulnerable Afghan families and boost bilateral ties.

“We appreciate China for providing the assistance, and the non-food humanitarian items such as blankets and tents will be distributed to Afghan returnees, war displaced families and natural disaster affected people across the country,” said Afghan Minister of Rural Rehabilitation and Development Nasir Ahmad Durrani.

At the handover ceremony attended by Chinese Ambassador to Afghanistan Yao Jing, Durrani said that “much of the equipment had been transported by the ministry’s personnel to 19 of the country’s 34 provinces and the remaining items will be shifted to 15 provinces by the private transport sector.”

Yao expressed his sincere wish of lasting peace and prosperity for Afghanistan.

“China will continue to be Afghanistan’s friend and we will continue to be your partner,” Yao said at the same occasion.

Durrani also expressed gratitude to China for its cooperation with the government and the people of Afghanistan.
