More foreign leaders have expressed condolences over the victims of the deadly earthquake that hit southwest China's Sichuan Province last week.

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak on Tuesday expressed condolence over the victims of the earthquake.

Yu Woo-ik, Lee's chief of staff, visited the Chinese embassy in Seoul on Tuesday and expressed Lee's condolence. Yu said the South Korean people are willing to help the Chinese people in overcoming the disaster and share with Chinese people the pain from the earthquake.

He said the South Korean government believed the Chinese government and people can unite together to overcome the difficulties caused by the earthquake and hold the upcoming Beijing Olympics successfully.

South Korea has dispatched a rescue team to the earthquake-affected area and will send medical or other personnel if China needs, he said.

In Dhaka, Bangladesh, Foreign Adviser of the caretaker government Iftekhar Ahmed Chowdhury stood in silence for one minute and signed the condolence book for the China earthquake victims at the Chinese embassy on Tuesday.

"On behalf of the government and people of Bangladesh, I wish to convey to the government and people of China our heartful condolence," he wrote in the condolence book.

"At this sad hour, we stand in solidarity with our Chinese brothers," he wrote.

In an interview with Xinhua, Iftekhar spoke highly of the Chinese government's quick and efficient rescue and relief efforts following the earthquake.

He said Bangladesh will help China as much as it can at China's request. Bangladesh government has earlier offered services of an army medical team for the earthquake victims.
