SEOUL, Nov. 10 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will provide US$1 million worth of humanitarian assistance to Vietnam where a powerful typhoon recently killed more than 80 people, the foreign ministry said Friday.

Typhoon Damrey ravaged Vietnam's central region on Nov. 4, killing 82 residents and leaving 26 others missing. It also damaged some 120,500 houses and inflicted other property damage.

"The South Korean government expresses its sincere consolation to the people of Vietnam over the typhoon damage and hopes for their prompt return to normal as well as recovery of the damage," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
