Beijing-China has said that since the floods hit the country, it has rushed to Pakistan’s aid as its genuine friend and brother in times of need.

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin said this during his regular media briefing here on Tuesday.

He was raised a question whether China is planning any debt relief for Pakistan as US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has called on Pakistan to seek debt relief from China so that Islamabad can more quickly recover from the floods.

Wang Wenbin explained the Chinese government has provided 400 million RMB worth of humanitarian assistance and China’s civil society has also lent a helping hand. “We will continue to do our utmost to help the Pakistani people overcome the floods and rebuild their homes at an early date,” he maintained.

He also said that China and Pakistan have had fruitful economic and financial cooperation. The Pakistani people know it best. Instead of passing unwarranted criticism against the China-Pakistan cooperation, the US side might as well do something real and beneficial for the people of Pakistan, he remarked.
