Tokyo (VNA) – The Japanese Government on October 19 decided to provide emergency relief aid for Vietnamese flood-hit areas.

The assistance is to respond to the Vietnamese Government’s suggestions and in line with the close relationship between the two countries, according to a notice released by the Japanese Government.

The donations, including blankets, fresh water and canvases, will be channelled through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

Continuous downpours from October 10 triggered floods and landslides in Vietnam’s northern and north central regions, causing huge human and property losses.
