China on Thursday pledged at least 100 million yuan's (16 million U.S. dollars) worth of additional aid to help West Africa fight the deadly Ebola outbreak.
The pledge was made by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang at the 10th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit here, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
In his remarks, Li said the Chinese government stands ready to fight Ebola, which poses a grave threat to global public health, along with the international community till victory.
The latest assistance will include 60 ambulances, 100 motorcycles as well as tens of thousands of medical kits and protective devices, he said, adding that the Chinese government will also send dozens of Chinese medical experts to help train 10,000 African health care workers.
"China, along with other Eurasian countries that have extended help for Africa, is willing to stand together with the governments and people in Ebola-hit areas to tackle the challenge," Li said.
Prior to the latest assistance, China has offered the embattled Africa a total of 234 million yuan (38 million U.S. dollars) in aid to battle the rampant disease since April.
The ASEM summit, themed "Responsible Partnership for Sustainable Growth and Security" and attended by leaders from 53 countries, adopted Croatia and Kazakhstan as latest members.
The Chinese premier is paying an official visit to Italy, the last stop of his ongoing three-nation tour, which has taken him to Germany and Russia.
