His Excellency Mr. Rex Tillerson
Secretary of State of the United States of America
I have learned with profound sadness over the catastrophic flooding disaster due to the Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas, which has caused loss of lives and enormous devastation of properties.
On behalf of the Government and people of the Lao PDR, I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy and deep condolences to Your Excellency and through you to the Government and American people, especially to the bereaved families of the calamity’s victims. I am confident that under the leadership of President Donald Trump the situation would be recovered soon.
