CARACAS, July 6 (Xinhua) -- The Venezuelan government on Wednesday expressed its solidarity with the Chinese people after heavy flooding caused human and material losses in large swathes of China.
In an official statement, Venezuela sends its "solidarity" with the survivors and the families of the victims "in these real moments of pain."
Intense rains have left at least 128 dead and 42 others missing in China. The rains, which have battered central and southern China, have also destroyed over 41,000 buildings and led to the evacuation of over 1.34 million people, especially along the Yangtze River.
"Venezuela expresses its deepest condolences to the Chinese government and people for the heavy human and material losses caused by intense rains and flooding," read the statement.
It added that "Venezuela sends its wishes for this regrettable situation to be quickly brought under control, thanks to the known efficiency and commitment of China's rescue service."
