CHINA-XIGAZE-NEPAL EARTHQUAKE (CN)

By NewsGram Staff Writer

Chinese government is facing the music for not sending planes to rescue 8,000 Chinese nationals stranded in Nepal.

The government is being criticized for sending only commercial airlines to rescue Chinese tourists and workers in the disaster hit Nepal. Reports of airlines demanding heavy fare from the rescued people, though officially denied, have nonetheless added fuel to the fire.

Comparisons are also being drawn between Indian Army’s swift rescue operations and that of China’s People’s Liberation Army, which seems to not be as effective as the former’s.

Faced with the question of airplanes in rescue operations, Chinese defense spokesman Geng Yansheng said, ‘ Whether to use military aircraft to transport people from a disaster area this is to be decided by various factors. After the earthquake, the government had organized a number of civilian commercial flights to evacuate Chinese citizens stranded in Nepal.’

He also said that three helicopters from Tibet had taken food and water to the Chinese employees at a hydro project, airlifting some of them.

Meanwhile, Chinese Foreign Ministry has offered to work with New Delhi in the ongoing rescue operations.

“China and India are neighbors to Nepal. We would like to work together and coordinate positively with India in our assistance efforts in Nepal to help it to overcome the difficulties and rebuild its homeland,” said Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei.

Apart from Indians, Indian Air Force also rescued 170 people from 15 different countries who faced nature’s wrath in Nepal.
