On behalf of the Lithuanian people and on my own behalf, I extend sincere condolences to the victims` families, loved ones and to the people of your country. I wish you all strength and fortitude as you continue rescue operations and move to overcome the painful consequences of this disaster.
Please accept, Mr. President, the assurances of my highest consideration.
