British Foreign Secretary offers condolences following Sichuan earthquake
2013/04/22

The British Foreign Secretary, the Rt Hon William Hague MP, has expressed condolences at the loss of life and injuries caused by the earthquake in Sichuan Province, China.

Speaking 20 April, the Foreign Secretary said: “I am saddened to hear of the tragic loss of life and destruction caused by today’s earthquake in Sichuan Province in China. I offer my deepest condolences to those who have lost loved ones and to all Chinese citizens affected. Today’s events will no doubt bring back terrible memories of the catastrophic earthquake in the same province in 2008.”

“My thoughts are also with the Chinese authorities and the emergency services as they continue their rescue efforts. We are in contact with local authorities through our Consulate-General in Chongqing and will continue to follow the situation closely.”
