H. E. Joachim Gauck
President of the Federal Republic of Germany
I was deeply shocked and saddened by the horrific event in Berlin, which has taken so many innocent lives in the midst of a festive occasion.
On behalf of myself and the Norwegian people, I extend my sincere condolences and ask you to convey my deepest sympathy to the bereaved.
Happy Constitution Day!
