Condolences from His Majesty King Harald to His Excellency Mr Juan Manuel Santos Calderón, President of the Republic of Colombia.
HE Mr Juan Manuel Santos Calderón
President of the Republic of Colombia,
Casa de Nariño
I was deeply saddened on hearing the news about the devastating flooding and mudslides that hit the city of Mocoa in the Putumayo province Friday last week, causing so many dead and injured and so much physical damage and destruction.
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 those otherwise afflicted by this tragic disaster.
Congratulations are presented today from His Majesty King Harald to His Excellency Mr Egils Levits, President of the Republic of Latvia.
