President Maithripala Sirisena has sent condolence messages on the Passing Away of the 41st President of the United States George H.W. Bush to US President Donald J. Trump and to President George H.W. Bush’s son, former President George W. Bush.

The messages:

His Excellency Donald J. Trump
President of the United States of America

Your Excellency,

“It is with profound sadness that I learnt of the passing of the Honourable George H.W. Bush, the forty-first President of the United States of America.

“A distinguished American in many fields and a devoted public servant for long years, President George H.W. Bush is most remembered by the people in my country for the visit that he undertook to Sri Lanka, along with President Bill Clinton, following the unprecedented devastation faced by us as a result of the December 2004 Tsunami.

“During the visit, he spent much time with child survivors and listened to their experiences, addressing the emotional impact on the youngest survivors of the disaster. His empathy and kindness are entrenched in people’s minds.

“On behalf of a grateful nation, I convey to you and to the people of the United States of America, our deepest condolences at this time of national mourning”.
