Palácia do Planalto
I was deeply saddened on hearing the news about the tragic loss of so many young lives caused by the fire at a nightclub in Santa Maria in the state of Rio Grande do Soul last Sunday.
On behalf of myself and the people of Norway, I extend to you Mrs. President, and to the affected families and to the people of Brazil, my sincere condolences and my sympathy at this difficult time.
Congratulations are presented today from His Majesty King Harald to His Excellency Mr Egils Levits, President of the Republic of Latvia.
