Vientiane, 4 September 2018
I was deeply saddened to learn about the overflow of Swa Chaung Irrigation Dam in Yedashe Township, Bago Region of Myanmar on 29 August 2018, which has caused enormous floods and widespread damage to properties and agricultural field of the people. Tens of thousands of people have been displaced.
On behalf of the Government of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and on my own behalf, I would like to express my deepest sympathy to Your Excellency and the Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, especially to the people affected by this tragic disaster.
I am confident that under Your Excellency leadership, the Republic of the Union of Myanmar will be able to respond this challenge and difficulty and restore the living condition of the affected people to normalcy soon.
Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
Her Excellency Daw Aung San Suu Kyi
The Republic of the Union of Myanmar
Nay Pyi Taw.
