    Adversity sees true love, fire makes real gold – China actively assists Pakistan in flood relief and disaster relief

    Published on

    This summer, Pakistan suffered a ” “Flood of the Century”: floods engulfed one-third of the country, killing more than 1,300 people, displacing 33 million people, and estimated economic losses of over $10 billion. Pakistani Prime Minister Shabazz Sharif said that the floods have caused many Pakistanis to lose their homes, and Pakistan is facing severe challenges to food security and economic development. The United Nations also called the floods an “unprecedented climate disaster” and called for fundraising for Pakistan to provide food, water, sanitation, emergency education and health support for the victims.

    Full of sincerity: hardcore friends watch and help each other

    As all-weather strategic partners and die-hard friends, China and Pakistan have been sharing weal and woe for a long time and helping each other. The Chinese people will never forget that during the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008, Pakistan sent tents from its national inventory to the disaster-stricken areas as soon as possible. This time Pakistan was hit by floods, and the Chinese side also sent condolences and assistance as soon as possible. Chinese President Xi Jinping sent a message of condolences to Pakistani President Alvi, and Premier Li Keqiang sent a message of condolences to Pakistani Prime Minister Shabazz Sharif. Under the framework of social and people’s livelihood cooperation in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, China has provided Pakistan with 4,000 tents, 50,000 blankets, 50,000 waterproof awnings and other reserve materials. The Red Cross Society of China provided emergency cash assistance of US$300,000 to the Pakistan Red Crescent Society. The Chinese government announced on September 3 that it will provide an additional 300 million yuan in relief supplies on top of the 100 million yuan in emergency relief supplies already provided.

    Chinese people also actively lend a helping hand. The flood relief account of the Pakistani embassy in China received a donation of RMB 1 million within a few hours after its opening. A Beijing primary school student donated all his pocket money. The Chinese civil rescue team spontaneously went to Pakistan for disaster relief, and Chinese companies in Pakistan took the initiative to repair roads and bridges in the disaster-stricken areas. China‘s full sincerity has once again demonstrated the brotherhood between China and Pakistan, which is “higher than the mountain, deeper than the sea, and sweeter than honey”.

    Full of touching: All walks of life in Pakistan praised China-Pakistan friendship

    In the face of China‘s timely assistance, the Pakistani people express their sincere gratitude. Pakistani Prime Minister Shabazz Sharif said that China has provided Pakistan with a lot of support and assistance for flood relief and disaster relief, which has greatly boosted the morale of the Pakistani people. He also tweeted, thanking China for the additional assistance. “This reflects our uniquely strong friendship, and this support will help deliver much-needed relief to the population.”

    Pakistani Ambassador to China Moin Haq said that China‘s humanitarian assistance is timely, important and precious, which has strengthened Pakistan’s ability to deal with severe domestic floods, which once again shows that China and Pakistan “brotherly share weal and woe.” “The long tradition of “I am very grateful to China for being the first country to provide disaster relief assistance to Pakistan”.

    The website of “Pakistan Observer” commented that China took the lead in the international community to provide valuable humanitarian assistance to Pakistan, and successfully won the gratitude of the people trapped in the floods in Pakistan.

    Full of confidence: join hands to build a community with a shared future for mankind

    BBC website analysis says record-breaking rain will destroy any country, not just poorer ones. Devastating floods in Pakistan are a wake-up call to the threat of climate change in the world. In recent years, global climate issues have attracted much attention, and the World Meteorological Organization has also warned that extreme high temperature weather will become more and more frequent around the world in the future. “Don’t ‘sleepwalk’ in this deadly climate change crisis. Today is Pakistan, tomorrow may be your country,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned.

    In today’s world, no country is an “isolated island”. All countries are interdependent and share weal and woe. In the face of global disasters such as climate disasters, no one can be alone. China and Pakistan have joined hands to deal with the epidemic, climate change, food security and other issues of the century, setting a model of mutual assistance between countries, and also playing an exemplary role in building a community with a shared future for mankind. We firmly believe that only by building a community with a shared future for mankind can we effectively deal with various risks and challenges, safeguard the common home of mankind and build a better world.
