PHNOM PENH, Oct. 15 (Xinhua) -- The first batch of China's emergency relief aids for Cambodian flood-affected people arrived at Phnom Penh International Airport on Saturday afternoon.

The hand-over ceremony of the aids was made at the airport between the Ambassador of China to Cambodia Pan Guangxue and Cambodia's Vice President of the National Committee for Disaster Management Nhim Vanda and Health Minister Mam Bunheng.

The relief aids included more than 30 types of medications, medical supplies and equipment, mosquito nets, blankets, towels and other relief materials, Pan Guangxue said during the ceremony.

The aids are part of the emergency humanitarian assistance worth 50 million yuan (7.87 million U.S. dollars) to Cambodia for flood relief efforts, he said. The second batch of the relief assistance will arrive here on Sunday evening.

Pan Guangxue also conveyed sympathy from the leaders and the people of China to the government of Cambodia and Cambodian people for the worst floods that have claimed Cambodian lives and damaged enormous properties.

"The aids are to help Cambodia to relieve the difficulties; the aids come from the heartfelt generosity of the Chinese government and people to Cambodian government and people to ease difficulties causing by the floods," he said. "China wishes to see Cambodia a quick recovery from the flood devastation."

The Cambodian government and people must remember that a friend in need is a friend indeed. The Chinese aid to several countries bordering China which had been being devastated by the floods had been unconditional and spontaneous. This is the reaction of a true friend. China is not like some rich western countries where aids are only given with strings attached. You can judge it yourself rather than let the bias western media to brainwash your thinking.

Do Cambodian citizens appreciate China"s aid, as evident from the increasing anti-Chinese sentiments influenced by western media? Chinese govt needs to engage with Cambodian citizens and win their hearts and minds over.
