Mainland willing to send fresh vegetables to typhoon-hit Taiwan
Adjust font size:

The mainland-based Taiwan Affairs Office under the State Council, or cabinet, said Tuesday that the mainland was willing to provide fresh vegetables at any time for Taiwan's typhoon-hit areas.

Typhoon Kalmaegi ruined many crops in the island, affecting vegetable supplies and people's daily life, said a spokesman with the office. He added that the mainland was very concerned about this and was prepared to send vegetables wherever the island needed them.

Kalmaegi made landfall near Ilan in northern Taiwan late on Thursday, bringing heavy rain. It left 16 people dead and 11 missing in the island.
