Condolences from His Majesty King Harald to the President of Indonesia, His Excellency Mr Joko Widodo.
HE Mr President Joko Widodo
I was deeply saddened to hear the news of the earthquake that struck the island of Lombok on 5 August and subsequent aftershocks, causing tragic loss of life 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 these tragic events.
Happy Constitution Day!
