China Donates $82,000 for Renovation of Quake-Damaged Pagodas in Myanmar
 

The Chinese Embassy in Myanmar and the Ruili Municipality of China's Yunnan province donated 100 million kyats (about $82,000) to Myanmar for renovation of quick-damaged pagodas in the country's Bagan.

 

Myanmar's Minister of Religious Affairs and Culture Thura U Aung Ko thanked China for the donation, saying that as a traditionally good neighbor, China provided assistance to Myanmar when Myanmar is hit by natural disaster.

 

Chinese Ambassador Hong Liang said China would continue to provide assistance to Myanmar, adding that a Chinese experts team will be sent to Myanmar to help renovate the damaged pagodas in Bagan.

 

A 6.8-magnitude earthquake hit the central Myanmar on August 24, damaging nearly 400 pagodas and temples in Bagan-Nyaung Oo region.

 

Bagan region was also hit by a strong earthquake in 1975 damaging over 1,000 pagodas and temples out of 2,217, the minister said.
