TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson expressed sympathy with Vietnam over fatal flooding and landslides in the Southeast Asian country.
In a statement on Wednesday, Saeed Khatibzadeh expressed condolences with the Vietnamese government and people following the recent flooding and landslide in that country, which left dozens dead or missing and left behind massive material damage.
Flooding and landslides this month have killed over 100 people in Vietnam, many of them soldiers, and left dozens more missing.
The floodwaters have so far left at least 178,000 homes submerged, food crops have been destroyed and nearly 700,000 poultry and livestock have been killed or swept away.
