Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has expressed his condolences to his Japanese counterpart, Shinzo Abe MP and to the people of Japan following the recent devastation and tragic loss of lives caused by the recent earthquake and flooding in Kumamoto Prefecture and surrounding areas.

In a condolence message, Prime Minister Bainimarama said the Fijian Government and the people of Fiji stood by their Japanese brothers and sisters, who have lost their loved ones.

Prime Minister Bainimarama said Fiji empathized with the victims of such disaster, having recently suffered similar loss of lives and devastation caused by Tropical Cyclone Winston in Fiji.

“It was with great sense of sadness and shock to receive news and pictures of the horrific devastation and tragic loss of lives, caused by the earthquake and flooding in Kumamoto Prefecture and surrounding areas of Japan, in recent days,” Mr Bainimarama said.

“During such a dark and difficult time for Japan, words fail to convey how deeply we feel for the Kumamoto Prefectural community, your government and the people of Japan, as you face the heartbreaking task of recovering victims and to provide relief and rehabilitation to a community, experiencing such great devastation.

“On behalf of the Government and the people of the Republic of Fiji, I convey our deepest sympathies and condolences to the people who have lost loved ones and whose livelihood have been devastated.

“Our prayers are with your government, the people of Kumamoto Prefecture and Japan, as you begin the long and painful process of rehabilitating the devastated communities and its people.”
