BEIJING, March 9 (Xinhua) -- China will provide emergency humanitarian aid worth two million U.S. dollars to Syria, said Qin Gang, the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on Friday.

Qin said the aid money is offered to improve the humanitarian conditions in some regions of Syria and to demonstrate Chinese people's friendliness towards Syrian people.

Qin said China supported the United Nations (UN) to play the leading role in coordinating humanitarian aid efforts in Syria, and to have an independent institution acceptable to the UN and all parties to carry out objective and comprehensive assessments on the humanitarian status of Syria under the circumstances that Syria's sovereignty is respected, and to guarantee the delivery and distribution of aid materials.
