I have learned of the recent powerful dust storm in northern parts of India that has caused tremendous loss of lives and properties.
On behalf of the Government and people of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and on my own behalf, I would like to extend my sympathy to Your Excellency and through you to the Government and the peopleof India, particularly to the family members of the victims.
I am confident that under intensive effort by the government, the people of India will be able to overcome the impact of this disaster and restore the area affected by this natural calamity to normalcy soon.
With my highest consideration,
of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic
H.E. Narendra Modi
