His Majesty the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques
King Salman Bin Abdulaziz al Saud
I was deeply saddened by the news of the tragic loss of many lives during the Haj, on the day of Eid al-Adha, in Mina near Mecca. On behalf of myself and the Norwegian people, I extend my sincere condolences and ask you to convey my deepest sympathy to the bereaved.
Congratulations are presented today from His Majesty King Harald to His Excellency Mr Egils Levits, President of the Republic of Latvia.
