ISLAMABAD, Sept. 23 (Xinhua) -- The first batch of Chinese assistance with 7000 tents to Pakistan has arrived in Karachi by air plane in early morning on Friday.

After parts of Pakistan hit by floods this year, the Chinese government decided to provide an emergency humanitarian aid worth 30 million yuan (about 4.7 million U.S. dollars) to the Pakistani government.

The assistance mainly consisted of 7000 tents, a total of nine aircraft sorties, delivered in two batches. The second batch will be delivered to Pakistan on Sept. 24.

China is one of the first countries which announced and implemented to provide relief aid to Pakistan after the flood.
