I join the American people in expressing our deep regret over the loss of life and devastation wrought by recent flooding in south and central China and by the mudslides in Gansu Province this past weekend. The United States is providing support for the ongoing relief efforts through assistance to the Red Cross Society of China. To those affected by this tragedy and to all the people of China, we send our heartfelt condolences.
