The Venezuelan government said that a third humanitarian aid plane carrying 64 tons of medicines and other supplies arrived in Venezuela on Thursday from China.

The government indicated that the plane landed at the airport of Maiquetía near Caracas, with a shipment of medical and surgical equipment destined for Venezuelan public hospitals.

The supplies would partially fill the acute shortage of medicines and surgical equipment in Venezuela, which is experiencing the worst economic crisis in its history.

The first Chinese plane arrived in Venezuela on March 29 with 65 tons of humanitarian aid, while the second plane arrived Monday with 71 tons.

A fourth Chinese plane is scheduled to arrive in two weeks.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro last April approved the entry of humanitarian aid to his country, in the framework of an agreement with the International Committee of the Red Cross.
