Luo Zhaohui, chairman of the China International Development Cooperation Agency (CIDCA), described China's emergency humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan in a special interview with the China Media Group on Sept 29.
Luo said that China will continue to provide food, vaccines and medicines urgently needed by Afghanistan as part of a 200-million-yuan ($31.04 million) commitment. When security and other conditions are available, China is also willing to help with Afghanistan's reconstruction, cultivate the country's capability to develop people's livelihood and sustain development, and support its poverty reduction and achieving economic and social development.
At the same time, China calls on the international community, including UN agencies, to take positive action to form a joint effort to help Afghanistan, Luo said.
Luo added that the United States is the cause of the problems in Afghanistan and cannot shake off the responsibilities or the blame and just walk away. The US should take primary responsibility for humanitarian relief and reconstruction in Afghanistan.
