KHABAROVSK, August 29 (Itar-Tass) - China offered humanitarian aid to Russia over the floods in the Far East, but the Russian emergency services will cope with the flood situation independently, Russian Minister of Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov said at a meeting over the cleanup of the aftermaths of the floods in several Russian regions here on Thursday. President Vladimir Putin chairs the meeting.
In particular, the minister reported about cooperation with partners in China, which was also stricken by the floods in the Amur river region.
“They suffered some casualties, didn’t they?” the president asked Puchkov.
The minister replied definitely, adding that China also sustained a large number of flood-affected people.
“We have established cooperation through our agency, particularly I offered condolences to my colleagues (in China),” the minister said.
“By the way, they also offered humanitarian aid to us, but we refused from it so far, because we will cope with the flood situation independently,” he said.
