VTV.vn - With multiple localities in the North and Northwestern areas of the country being hit by heavy rains, floods and landslides in the past week, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung sent an official telegram this morning concerning relief efforts.

In the telegram, the state leader directed that all people’s committees of affected provinces and cities focus efforts on quickly mitigating the consequences of floods and landslides. Local authorities, he noted, should concentrate on finding those missing, providing medical aid to those injured, and caring for families who have lost relatives.
