|HAVANA Joao Cancelo World Cup Jersey , Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- A group of specialists from the Red Cross Society of China arrived in Havana on Sunday to train a group of Cuban volunteers in disaster relief, after Hurricane Irma struck the island country.
The Chinese experts shared theoretical knowledge and did a practical demonstration about how to deploy camp tents for the displaced.
Li Qinghua, the deputy director of the disaster-relief department of the Red Cross Society of China, told Xinhua that China is willing to assist Cuban people in the distribution of first-aid materials and train volunteers.
Members of the Cuban Red Cross said such exchanges are highly significant as they can greatly help increase their operational knowledge of disaster relief.
Luis Enrique Calero, the director of operations of the Cuban Red Cross, explained that the Chinese trainers were focusing on the deployment of 12-square-meter tents which each can shelter five people.
"This is also a gesture of solidarity between the two countries," said Calero.
On Friday, a plane from China arrived in Cuba carrying 86 tons of humanitarian aid, including tents, electronics, cushions, water dispensers, lighting, and blankets.
Six ships loaded with rice will also arrive in Cuba from China next month.
Irma, the strongest hurricane ever registered in the Atlantic, killed at least 10 people in Cuba, displaced 1.7 million, and caused widespread flooding and extensive damage to infrastructure, including hotels and the power grids.

The Ford F-150 has been the best selling truck in the US for almost 30 years and this vehicle is also known globally, being the world?s best selling vehicle for 23 years. As if that is not enough, figures show that there are 29,000,000 units of the truck already sold in its entire lifespan. That makes it the second most popular vehicle of all time and quite an impressive achievement for the Ford Motor Company. While the success of the model is phenomenal, the company never rests on its laurels and continually seeks ways to reinvent the F-150 and make it better.
Such is the case with the Harley-Davidson Edition F-150, a culmination of the joint efforts between the makers of the king of pickups and the king of all things two-wheeled. The monster of a truck can be described as good looking, not only in its exterior design but also inside. It has two proper doors and two more rear-hinged doors just in front of its 65? bed which you can load up your goods and protect its contents with an Extang tonneau cover. The truck bed is just like an ordinary Ford F-150, a long and deep and the tailgate is that easy to raise despite being the biggest in its class. Unlike other trucks where the rear seats are best left to children, the special editions rear seats can sit full sized passengers with relative comfort.
The exterior design of the vehicle is not the only good looking part of the truck. Once you step inside the spacious cockpit of the car, you will not be disappointed either. Plush leather bucket seats and a piano key black trim add to the luxurious feel that the car exudes. Add to that the various goodies integrated in the vehicle like the upgraded CD-6 stereo system with the optional Audiophile speakers and subwoofers which give the occupants the optimum in audio experience. The digital climate control and the buttons on the stereo are large enough to be used even when wearing gloves. The shift knob is as hefty and big as the Harley Davidsons hogs are huge.
The performance of the vehicle is also awesome; every system is perfectly engineered to bring to life this masterpiece. Its handling capability is the best in the Ford F-150 series and the suspension is also up there too. Suspension parts which are sport tuned added to the already sophisticated handling capability of the Ford F-150 just boosted the ride comfort for the occupants.
One of the best pickups in recent years to surface from Ford, this special edition is surely going to make heads turn.
NANJING, China, Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- International Cycling Union (UCI) president Brian Cookson on Sunday gave all thumbs up to the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympics which was unveiled in east China's Nanjing on Saturday.
Cookson said the Opening Ceremony was impressive and the Games has been well organised.
"I was not at Singapore for the inaugural Games, but I'm surprised how big the event is here. The people in Nanjing have done an excellent job. Singapore was the first Youth Olympics and Nanjing Games is the second and it seems to me that this one is even bigger. I'm sure Nanjing edition is even more successful than Singapore was."
Nanjing is part of Cookson's Asian trip which included Japan and South Korea stops, and in the capital city of Jiangsu Province, Cookson is due to meet with heads of Rio Olympics Organising Committee, people of International Olympic Committee and head of the Chinese Cycling Association.
Cookson took the Youth Olympics as a must step towards the world's top arena, and the young athletes are offered great chances to compete and learn.
"Competing at the Youth Olympics is a once-in-a-life experience. The athletes should not consider it as the highest level of their achievements but one step halfway towards the senior Olympics," he said.
