"We are saddened by the massive loss of lives and material damage in Mozambique due to the heavy rains and flooding caused by Tropical Cyclone Idai,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
"We wholeheartedly share the pain of the friendly people of Mozambique caused by this tragedy. We convey our condolences to the relatives of the victims and wish speedy recovery to the injured," the statement added.
According to International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) on Monday, 90 percent of the Mozambican city of Beira was destroyed by cyclone.
Idai killed over 150 people in Southern African countries of Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Malawi, the IFRC said.
The tropical cyclone made landfall in Mozambique last Thursday, before moving to Zimbabwe.
