Japan Begins To Render Humanitarian Aid To Afghan Refugees

In reply to the request by Tajikistan's President Emomali Rakhmonov, the government of Japan has allocated $2 million for rendering urgent humanitarian aid for Afghan refugees staying on islands on the border river of Pyandzh. An official of Tajikistan's Ministry of Trade and Economy told RIA Novosti on Monday that the Japanese government allocated the money to Tajikistan as the latter has shown itself as a good intermediary in providing humanitarian aid to the Afghan people. Tajikistan's Ministry of Trade and Economy will buy tents, blankets, medicines and foodstuffs, and the Tajik Ministry For Emergencies will deliver them to the refugees. The ministry official said this was Japan's first humanitarian action through Tajikistan's mediation.
