Vientiane 06 November 2019
I have learned with sadness over series of strong earthquake that hit Mindanao, in the Southern Philippines last month causing loss of lives, casualties and extensive damage to infrastructures and properties of the people living in the area.
On behalf of the Government and the people of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and on my own behalf, I would like to convey my deepest sympathy and condolences to Your Excellency and through Your Excellency to the Government and the people of the Republic of the Philippines, particularly to the victims and their families affected by such tragic calamity.
I strongly believe that under the leadership of Your Excellency and the Government of the Republic of the Philippines, the friendly Filipinos will be able to overcome the difficulty of this disaster and restore the affected area to normalcy soon.
Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
His Excellency Teodoro Locsin Jr
