Rain bothers 'panda event' Berlin
berlin - Chinese president Xi Jinping and German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened a riant house for pandas on Wednesday in Berlin's zoo. However, the event was confused by the heavy rains of recent times. The Chinese-led pandas Meng Meng (Droompje) and Jiao Quing (Schatje), just like their high guests, had to stay in.
Due to the rain, construction work for the stay of 10 million euros has been delayed. The stay was finished on Wednesday, but the pandas have not had time to get used to the outdoors. Therefore, they are not allowed to go outside.
Chinese foreign policy makers have taken pandas for 45 years. The Chinese black and white mammals are donated or lent. Meng Meng and Jiao Quing are in principle fifteen years in Berlin. In the framework of the 'pandadiplomation', the Netherlands received two giant pandas arriving at the Ouwehands Dierenpark in Rhenen in April this year.
Xi is a guest in Hamburg, Friday and Saturday, where the G20 summit is.
