Hanoi (VNA) – President Tran Dai Quang on April 4 sent messages of condolences to his Colombian and Peruvian counterparts Juan Manual Santos Calderon and Pedro Pablo Kuczynski over the great losses of lives and property caused by recent landslides and downpours.

The landslides and downpours hit many localities in the two nations, killing 262 people in the Republic of Colombia, and 90 in the Republic of Peru.

The floods in late March in Peru also left over 340 people injured and 20 missing, and caused serious losses in property.-VNA
