Condolences from His Majesty King Harald to His Majesty the Emperor of Japan.
His Majesty the Emperor of Japan
I was saddened when hearing about the severe earthquakes that struck Japan last week, resulting in the tragic loss of so many lives and causing such widespread damage.
On behalf of myself and the Norwegian people I send you my condolences, and ask you to convey my deepest sympathies to those bereaved and to others afflicted by this tragic natural disaster.
