Condolences from His Majesty King Harald to the President of the Hellenic Republic, His Excellency Mr Prokopis Pavlopoulos.
HE Mr Prokopis Pavlopoulos
President of the Hellenic Republic
I am saddened by the news about the terrible forest fires that have struck the Attica region of your country, causing the loss of so many lives and people missing, many injuries and so much destruction.
On behalf of myself and the Norwegian people, I am sending you my condolences and deepest sympathy in this trying time for your people and country, and ask you to convey my condolences and sympathy to those bereaved, the injured and to those otherwise affected by this terrible disaster.
Congratulations are presented today from His Majesty King Harald to His Excellency Mr Egils Levits, President of the Republic of Latvia.
