HÀ NỘI — Lao Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith on Friday sent sympathies to his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyễn Xuân Phúc over the loss of lives and property in floods triggered by prolonged rains in the north of Việt Nam.

“I am very sad and worried on learning about 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 Việt Nam, especially Điện Biên, Sơn La and Yên Bái,” the Lao PM wrote in the message.

On behalf of the Lao Party, Government and people, he offered sympathies to PM Phúc and the Party, the Government and people of Việt Nam, particularly the administrations of flood-hit localities and affected families.

Sisoulith said he believed that under the leadership of the Vietnamese Party and Government, people in the flood-hit areas will overcome difficulties and stabilise their lives soon. — VNS
