Condolences from His Majesty King Harald of Norway to the President of China, His Excellency Mr Xi Jinping after the earthquake in the Yunnan province.
President Xi Jinping
President of The Peoples Republic of China
I was deeply saddened to learn about the devastating earthquake in the county of Ludian and the surrounding areas in the Yunnan province on 3 August that has caused so many deaths and such widespread destruction.
On behalf of myself and the Norwegian people I take this opportunity to send my condolences to you personally, and I ask you to convey my condolences to those bereaved and my sympathy to those otherwise affected and to the people of The Peoples Republic of China.
The King and Queen opened the new MUNCH
"I think that I speak for all of us when I say that we have been looking forward to this day! It is finally possible for us to gather together, and soon the great doors will open up a new attraction – not just for our capital city, but for Norway, and for the world," said His Majesty The King.
Congratulations from His Majesty King Harald to His Excellency Mr Alar Karis, President of the Republic of Estonia.
