Vientiane, 18 March 2019
We are deeply shocked to learn about the mass shooting in the mosques in Masjid Al Noor and Linwoodin Christchurch on 15 March 2019, which has caused tremendous loss of lives of innocent people and left many wounded.
On the occasion of the 23rd Anniversary of ASEM foundation, which falls on 1 March, on behalf of the Government of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and on my own behalf, I would like to convey my sincere congratulation and best wishes to the Lao people and all of ASEM member countries.
