BEIJING, July 24 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi met on Wednesday with Pakistan's Ambassador to China Masood Khalid and received a humanitarian donation of one million U.S. dollars from the Pakistani government.

A 6.6-magnitude quake hit northwest China's Gansu Province on Monday morning, leaving 95 dead and 1,001 injured.

"A friend in need is a friend indeed," said Wang, calling Pakistan a devoted friend of China.

He recalled Pakistan's donation of more than 20,000 tents to China during the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008.

Despite difficulties in its own economy, Pakistan is again providing assistance to China, which demonstrates the brotherhood between the two countries, said Wang.

Khalid said Pakistan is keenly aware of the sufferings of people in the quake-stricken areas and believes that the quake-affected people will endure the difficulties and rebuild their homeland.
