October 12, 2005
- The Government of Japan has decided to extend emergency assistance in kind (blankets, tents, water purifiers, generators and other goods) worth about 20 million yen to the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam, which has sustained a large-scale typhoon disaster.
- The local and international organizations in Viet Nam have reported 75 persons dead or missing, more than 300,000 people evacuated, about 113,500 houses flooded, and such infrastructure as farmland and levees severely damaged.
The afflicted people are forced to live under difficult conditions in wide-ranging areas, and the Government of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam has requested emergency aid from major countries, while striving to restore damage on its own.
- The Government of Japan has decided to extend this emergency aid from a humanitarian point of view and in view of the friendly relations between Japan and Viet Nam.
