November 24, 2010

Dmitry Medvedev sent his condolences to Prime Minister of New Zealand John Key following the tragedy at the Pike River mine.

The message reads, in part:

“It was with real sorrow that I learned of the deaths of the miners at the Pike River mine.

I express my profound condolences. We share the New Zealand people’s grief and send our words of sympathy and support to the miners’ families, who have suffered an irreplaceable loss.

I hope that our feelings of solidarity will help to give the victims’ families and all New Zealanders the courage and steadfastness to get through this difficult hour.”
