Chinese President Hu Jintao on Wednesday expressed sincere thanks to those governments and peoples that extended China sympathy and sincere help in the wake of the May 12 Wenchuan devastating earthquake.
Hu made the remark when addressing an outreach session of the Group of Eight (G8) in the northern Japanese resort.
The focus of China's quake-relief efforts has been shifted to the settlement of dislocated people and post-quake reconstruction.
"The Chinese people have the determination and confidence to overcome this major disaster and help people in the quake areas rebuild their beautiful homeland at an early date," the president said.
The Wenchuan earthquake, measuring 8.0 on the Richter scale, has left nearly 70,000 people dead, over 374,000 others injured and almost 19,000 missing.
