British Foreign Secretary expresses sympathy and solidarity with Chinese people in the fight against disaster
2008/02/04

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.
