HE Mr. Reuven Rivlin
President of the State of Israel,
The Residence of the President,
I was saddened by hearing the news that former prime minister, president and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Shimon Peres, has died.
Mr. Peres, who I had the opportunity of meeting myself, had an important role in the struggle for peace. On this sad occasion, we should all be thankful for his efforts and his long-lasting service as an Israeli Statesman.
On behalf of myself and the people of Norway, I extend my condolences to you, and would ask you to convey my condolences and deepest sympathy to his family in their bereavement, and to the people of Israel.
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.
