Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnamese Government will create best conditions for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to implement its humanitarian activities and joint projects with the Vietnam Red Cross Society (VRCS).

Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung made the promise at his meeting with IFRC President Tadateru Konoe in Hanoi on November 19.

He hailed the effective assistance of the organisation and its local member – VRCS – toward victims of war and natural disasters in Vietnam.

The Deputy PM talked about the suffering of the central region due to serious floods in recent months, hoping the IFRC will increase support to the central people by calling for more international aid.

Dung also expected the IFRC to help the VRCS improve capacity and form connection with humanitarian organisations in the world.

For his part, Konoe said the current visit to Vietnam offers him an opportunity to see the growth of the VRCS after 70 years of operation with great support from the Vietnamese Government.

He stated that the IFRC will continue assisting the VRCS in launching humanitarian aid in the country, particularly in response to natural disasters.-VNA
