I have learned with profound sadness over the passing away of H.E Bob Hawke, former Prime Minister of Australia on 16 May 2019.
On behalf of the Lao Government and the entire people, and on my own behalf, I would like to express my deepest condolences and share this moment of sadness with the Government and people of Australia, particularly the family and relatives for such a huge loss.
Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
