President Truong Tan Sang on May 20 sent a message of sympathy to Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic and Chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina Bakir Izetbegovic over the devastating floods that the countries have faced recently.

Due to continuous rainfall in the two countries earlier this month, thousands of people have been affected by flooding.

It is estimated that over 50,000 people in Serbia have suffered from the floods and landslides, while at least five reported dead in Bosnia and Herzegovina.-VNA
