NDO/VNA - Lao Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith on August 11 sent his sympathies to his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Xuan Phuc over the heavy human and property losses caused by the recent floods triggered by prolonged rains in the north of Vietnam.
“I am very sad and concerned upon learning about the prolonged downpours and flash floods causing widespread flooding and landslides, resulting in human and property losses for the people and infrastructure damage in the northern provinces of Vietnam, especially Dien Bien, Son La and Yen Bai,” the Lao PM wrote in the message.
On behalf of the Lao Party, Government and people, he offered his sympathies to PM Phuc and the Party, the Government and people of Vietnam, particularly the administrations of the flood-hit localities and the affected families.
Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith voiced his belief that under the leadership of the Vietnamese Party and government, people in the flood-hit areas will overcome any difficulties and soon stabilise their lives.
