Yesterday, Ajmal Khan Wazir had said that the brotherly country of China has always helped Pakistan in every difficult situation and that is why people of both countries had everlasting bonds of friendship besides deep-rooted and time tested relations.

The Chinese Embassy at Islamabad dispatched 100,000 flour bags and over 10,000 masks for needy people.
