Message of Sympathy by the Honourable Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama at Sandy Hook School Tragedy, Connecticut

Dear Ambassador,

On behalf of the Fijian people, I want to convey our deep shock and sympathy to you and your Government over the murders at the Sandy Hook school in Newtown, Connecticut.

We are especially upset at the killing of so many innocent children. All Fijians are united in our grief with the American people at this senseless tragedy.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those affected and all Americans at this time.

J.V Bainimarama

Prime Minister
