GOD FORBID A REPEAT OF NEPAL IN FIJI BUT WHAT CAN BE SAID IS THAT INSTEAD OF DEMANDING AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND BE KICKED OUT OF PACIFIC ISLANDS FORUM, THE REALITY IS WE MIGHT HAVE TO RELY ON THESE TWO COUNTRIES IN THE EVENT OF MAJOR DISASTER; CHINA MERELY DONATED $3MILLION TO NEIGHBOUR NEPAL WHEREAS INDIA HAS RUSHED IN WITH ALL ITS MILITARY MIGHT & MANPOWER TO HELP NEPAL:
'OPERATION MAITRI' or FRIENDSHIP'
CHINA'S INTERNATIONAL SEARCH AND RESCUE TEAM: On April 26, Nepal’s northern neighbor sent a 62-member search-and-rescue team, while promising 20 million yuan ($3.3 million) in aid. China will send emergency shelters, clothing, blankets, and power generators to Nepal, according to the country’s commerce ministry. “The Chinese side is willing to offer all necessary disaster assistance to the Nepalese side,” Prime Minister Xi Jinping said in a statement.
