Adjust font size:

The Chinese People's Liberation Army handed over 1,600 tons of relief goods to Bangladesh armed forces here Monday.

The relief goods includes 1,000 tons of rice, 500 tons of flour and 100 tons of edible oil which the PLA hopes to do some help for the cyclone affected people in Bangladesh.

Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Zheng Qingdian, who handed over the relief goods on behalf of PLA, said as a friendly and neighboring country, China always tries its best to help Bangladesh.

"I hope this donation will give the cyclone affected people some help," he said.

Principal Staff Officer of Armed Forces Division, Lieutenant General Masud Uddin Chowdhury said after receiving the relief goods that he felt very grateful to the help from Chinese People's Liberation Army.

Masud promised they would use the relief goods properly.

The cyclone Sidr, one of the fiercest cyclones hit Bangladesh in the last 131 years, slammed the country's southern and southwestern areas on Nov. 15, affecting 30 out of total 64 districts and leaving over 1,000 people dead and millions homeless.
