Mongolia condoles with victims of Iran floods

Beijing, Mongolian Foreign Minister in a message extended condolences on death of Iranians in recent deadly floods.

In his message to Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif which was released on Thursday, Damdin Tsogtbaatar offered his deepest condolences over the sad occasion.

Our mind and heart are with families who lost their loved ones in the incident.

He also expressed his certainty that the Iranian government will overcome the current hard situation.

The disaster began with heavy rains in the northern provinces of Iran since March 19, and continued across Iran with flash rains in southern, central and western provinces.

At some points, at least 25 provinces were struggling with the disaster. Fortynine people were killed and scores more were injured. It also left thousands of people displaced.

The disaster coincided with the high season of Iranian trips as they were spending the national twoweek holidays of Nowruz.

Despite the urgent need of Iranian people to preliminary aids, Iranian people were left without any help on the side of global humanitarian organizations, including the Red Cross, due to US unilateral sanctions on Iran.

Calling the sanctions 'economic terrorism', Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif on Twitter slammed the US for defying the UNSC resolution 2231 and the ruling of International Court of Justice.
