Notice on International Donations to Earthquake-Hit Area in Lushan, Sichuan

1. After the earthquake hit Lushan of China's Sichuan Province on April 20, the international community acted quickly to express sympathy and support to the Chinese government and people, and some countries have offered to provide assistance in various forms. The Chinese government and people express sincere appreciation and gratitude for that. The Chinese government is going all out with the rescue work, mobilizing large amount of relief materials and rescue personnel. At present, China has sufficient rescue and medical treatment capability and relief materials.

We will make requests if such need arises.
