30.10.2008 - Condolence letter by the French President, Mr Nicolas Sarkozy to the Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh
Paris, 30th October 2008
Hon’ble Prime Minister,
It was with deep grief that I learnt of the series of blasts that took place on 30th October in the state of Assam, claiming numerous victims. I wished to address my deepest condolences to you, on behalf of myself and that of France, and would be grateful to you for conveying the same to the mourning families.
France firmly condemns these cowardly and despicable acts. During this ordeal for Indian citizens, France remains at your side and remains ever more resolute in strengthening its cooperation with your country for combating the scourge of terrorism.
Kindly accept, Hon’ble Prime Minister, the expression of my highest and cordial (handwritten) consideration.
Signed: Nicolas Sarkozy
