He told ICANA that in view of the friendly ties between Tehran and Tokyo, Iran’s Red Crescent Society is ready to send its experts to Japan should the Japanese government agree.

Head of Iran's Red Crescent Society Abolhassan Faqih said the body was ready to supply the victims of the earthquake in northeastern Japan with medicine, hygienic products and food supplies.

The quake unleashed a seven-meter (23-foot) tsunami and was followed by more than 50 aftershocks, measuring more than 6.0 on the Richter scale, for hours.

Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has offered the Islamic Republic's condolences to the people of Japan.

In a message to his Japanese counterpart Takeaki Matsumoto, Salehi expressed his deep sorrow over the 9-magnitude earthquake that rocked Japan on Friday and triggered a devastating tsunami.

The Iranian minister pointed to the Japanese nation's record of hard work and perseverance and expressed hope that the people will overcome the aftermath of the natural disasters and get through their difficult conditions.

Salehi offered his sympathies to the families of the victims of the Friday quake and heavy floods and said Tehran is ready to aid the disaster-hit country in any possible way.
