Interestingly, the Ambassador wrote in his op-ed that: “today, as a result of natural disasters and conflicts, more than one-third of Somali people are in urgent need of humanitarian aid, and one-fifth are displaced. A new batch of Chinese humanitarian aid was recently handed over to Somalia and will soon be delivered to the vulnerable population. It comes at the right time for those in need”.
While the Chinese communist regime attempts to project an image of a humanitarian state, it is a well-established fact that that China has sinisterous motives about its involvement in Africa, and particularly in Somalia for that matter.
