The 2600 water-proof tents provided by China for flood disaster relief in Iran arrived at Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran on Apr 26.
Chinese Ambassador to Iran Pang Sen held a handover ceremony with the Iraqi representative at the airport.
Peng said that in the recent Iranian flood disaster the country has suffered a huge loss of life and a great deal of property damage. The Chinese people are providing assistance to the Iranian people out of the friendship between them. He also said that the friendship between China and Iran is profound. Iran immediately provided assistance to China after the Wenchuan earthquake in China.
The Iran representative expressed gratitude to the Chinese side for their assistance.
China will provide Iran with four more shipments of relief supplies, including dinghies, life jackets, diesel generator sets and sewage pumps.
Since late March, a large-scale continuous rainfall has occurred in Iran, causing severe flooding and massive losses.
