Vietnam's northern mountainous Lao Cai province has decided to send 100 tons of rice to support victims of the earthquake in China's Yunnan province.

A report posted on the website of Vietnam's Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday reads "Arising from the traditional friendship between peoples of the two countries and the two provinces of Lao Cai and Yunnan, on Tuesday, Lao Cai province decided to support 100 tons of rice to share difficulties with victims of the quake."

The quake on Aug. 3, the strongest that hit Yunnan province in 14 years, killed more than 600 people and destroyed 80,000 homes in Ludian and surrounding areas.

After learning that the earthquake in Yunnan province caused heavy losses in human lives and property, General Secretary of Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong, President Truong Tan Sang, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung, National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung, Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh expressed sympathy to their Chinese counterparts over the tragedy.
