China will allocate an additional 200 million yuan (around $29.3 million) in humanitarian aid to Syria, Chinese President Xi Jinping has announced.

BEIJING (Sputnik) – The aid will be used to help Syrian refugees and all those who have lost their homes as a result of the internal conflict in Syria, Xi Jinping said on Wednesday at the UN Office in Geneva, as quoted by the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

In late December, Chinese Ambassador to Syria Qi Qianjin said that China planned to continue providing humanitarian and political support to civil-war-torn Syria.
