DUBAI: In the wake of the damage caused by the flood disaster in the eastern part of Libya, Japan’s Prime Minister KISHIDA Fumio delivered a message of condolences to Libyan PM Abdul Hamid Mohammed Dbeibah.
“I am deeply grieved and saddened to learn that many precious lives were lost and many people were affected by the flood disaster in the eastern part of the State of Libya,” Kishida said. “I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to those who lost their lives, and my sympathies are with their bereaved families. I sincerely pray for the quick recovery of those who are affected as well as the prompt reconstruction of the affected areas.”
He added: “I would like to convey to you that Japan stands ready to consider assistance your country may need, based on local needs.”
Libya was hit by the natural disaster on Sept. 11, causing over 5,300 deaths and 10,000 people still reported missing, after floodwaters smashed through dams and washed away entire neighborhoods of the city of Derna.
