Vientiane 9 May 2018
I have learned of the recent flooding and landslides triggered by heavy rains in the Southeast of Kenya that have caused serious loss of lives and properties.
On behalf of the Government and people of the Lao people’s Democratic Republic and my own behalf, I would like to extend my sympathy to Your Excellency and through you to the Government and people of Kenya, particularly to the family members of the victims.
I am confident that under intensive effort by the government, the Kenyan people will be able to overcome the impact of this disaster and restore the area affected by this natural calamity to normalcy soon.
Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
Of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic
