Wang Min, the charge d'affaires ad interim of the Chinese Permanent Mission to the United Nations, made the donation on behalf of the Chinese government, when he met with UN Assistant Secretary-general for Peacebuilding Support Judy Cheng-Hopkins at the UN Headquarters in New York.

The Wednesday donation is part of a pledge made by the Chinese government at the first high-level meeting of the stakeholders of the UN fund on November 14, that China would donate a total of 3 million dollars from 2010 to 2012.

At the donation ceremony, Wang said that the Chinese government always supports the UN work in the field of peacebuilding, and attaches great importance to the positive role played by the UN Peacebuilding Fund in supporting reconstruction in the post- conflict countries.

The Chinese government also supports the efforts of the UN fund in strengthening the improvement of the national capacity, reform of the security sector and rejuvenation of economy in the post- conflict countries, Wang said.

The Peacebuilding Fund, established in 2006, provides support for countries emerging from conflict and undertakes peacebuilding activities which directly contribute to post-conflict stabilization.
