British Foreign Secretary expresses sympathy and solidarity with Chinese people in the fight against disaster

On 1st of February, British Foreign secretary David Miliband sent message to China's Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi, which reads as follows: I was extremely concerned to learn about the recent extreme weather conditions in China, which I understand have caused a number of fatalities as well as billions of pounds worth of disruption. My thoughts, and those of the British people, have been with you. I would like to pay tribute to those who are helping to address this crisis, many of whom I understand will be sacrificing their own New Year holiday to help with the recovery process.
