In order to help Afghanistan overcome the current difficulties, China is now accelerating its work through 200 million yuan (31 million USD) worth of emergency assistance to Afghanistan, including food, winter supplies, vaccines and medicines, he said.
Wang noted that China is importing a large amount of pine nuts that will bring Afghan pine nut farmers with income worth hundreds of millions of U.S. dollars. Moreover, China will assist Afghanistan in further expanding its exports and other projects that will help improve people's livelihood.
For his part, Omar expressed his appreciation to the Chinese government for the donation and support provided to Afghanistan. He said the donation is very important for the people of Afghanistan in this critical situation.
This shipment of Sinopharm vaccines is the second Chinese donation of the COVID-19 vaccine to Afghanistan. In June, a batch of China-donated COVID-19 vaccines was similarly handed over to the country's authorities.
