Excellency,

It is with deep sadness that I learnt of the tragic loss of lives, including that of children, following the devastating earthquake in the Puebla state. I have also learnt that the impact has been drastic and far ranging from the epicentre.  

The Government and people of Sri Lanka join me in conveying our profound condolences to Your Excellency, the Government and people of Mexico during this challenging time, especially as Mexico had begun to recover from the earlier earthquake in its southern coast.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the members of the bereaved families and those affected by this dreadful catastrophe.

We are confident that your excellent leadership and the resilient spirit of the people of Mexico will help overcome the trauma and destruction caused by this natural disaster.

Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.

 

Maithripala Sirisena

President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka
