Some countries and foreign friends have sent messages of sympathy and solicitude to China over a rare snow havoc in southern China.

Former Cambodian King Norodom Sihanouk sent a message of sympathy to Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi and donated 50,000 U.S. dollars in his own name to China's humanitarian relief organizations.

South Korea's embassy in Beijing informed the Chinese Foreign Ministry of its government's decision to provide 100,000 dollars of emergency aid to the Chinese government.

Japanese Foreign Minister Masahiko Komura and Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere also expressed their sympathy and solicitude to China on behalf of their respective governments.

The worst snow in five decades in China has snarled China's central, southern and eastern regions over the past three weeks and caused huge economic losses.

The snow has so far killed 60 people and forced nearly 1.76 million people to relocate. From Jan. 25 to 31, a total of 5.8 million passengers were stranded throughout the railway system and more than 8,000 cargo trains were affected.
