Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh expressed sympathy with the Vietnamese people and government late on Wednesday over recent floods and landslide that have claimed more than 100 lives.

Khatibzadeh offered sympathies on the heavy human and property losses caused by serious floods in the Southeast Asian country, IRNA reported.

According to media reports, death toll from weeks of severe flooding and landslides in central Vietnam has risen to 111, with 22 people still missing.

“These devastating floods are some of the worst we have seen in decades,” Nguyen Thi Xuan Thu, the president of Vietnam’s Red Cross Society, said in a statement on Tuesday.

More than 7,200 hectares of food crops have been submerged and damaged, and more than 691,000 cattle and poultry have been killed or swept away in flood water, according to the state-run Vietnam News Agency (VNA). Sixteen national highways and 161,880 meters of local roads in four provinces have also been damaged.
