Letter from Nicolas Sarkozy, President of the Republic, to Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, Spanish Prime Minister

Paris, May 12, 2011

Dear Prime Minister,

I was shocked to learn that Spain was hit today by an earthquake in the Murcia region which claimed several lives and caused damage.

On behalf of the French people and myself, I would like to offer my heartfelt condolences and express my deep sympathy with the injured and bereaved.

Let me assure you of France’s solidarity with all those who are suffering and in mourning.

(complimentary close)./.
