Office of the President
I was deeply saddened by the news about the terrible earthquake, which struck your country on Saturday 24th April, resulting in the tragic loss of so many lives and causing such widespread damage.
On behalf of the Norwegian people and myself I send you my condolences, and ask you to convey my deepest sympathies to those bereaved and to those otherwise afflicted by this disaster.
Congratulations are presented today from His Majesty King Harald to His Excellency Mr Egils Levits, President of the Republic of Latvia.
