BEIJING, April 21 (Xinhua) -- China on Sunday thanked the international community for offering assistances following Saturday's devastating earthquake in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

"The Chinese government and people are sincerely grateful to various means of assistances offered by some countries," Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said in a statement.

Stressing the Chinese government is going all out to carry out rescue work, Qin said the country has guaranteed rescue and medical treatment capability and sufficient rescue materials.

"Considering the inconvenient traffic and telecommunications in quake zone, foreign rescue and medical teams and materials are not required now," Qin said, adding that China will make requests if needed.

The Red Cross Society of China has published the ways of contact for international fund assistance, Qin said.

A strong quake on Saturday in southwest China's Sichuan Province has left 181 people dead, 24 missing up to date, and over 6,700 injured, including 494 in serious condition.
