Egypt offered condolences to China for the victims of Lekima hurricane that hit the eastern parts of the country recently leaving scores of people killed and thousands harmed due to the destruction of hundreds of houses and huge areas of agricultural lands.

The Foreign Ministry asserted in a statement that Egypt stands in solidarity with the Chinese people and government at this difficult time.

At least 33 people have been killed and several people remain missing after a typhoon made landfall in eastern China. Typhoon Lekima swept along the coast south of Shanghai early Sunday morning, causing hundreds of homes to collapse.
