Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José
Miguel Insulza, today sent "heartfelt condolences and deep affection" in
his name and that of the organization to the government and people of
Brazil over the tragedy that took place in a nightclub in Santa Maria,
in the state of Rio Grande do Sul.
In a letter to Brazilian
President Dilma Rousseff, the leader of the hemispheric organization
wrote that "it is not easy to convey a feeling that brings consolation
in the face of such a dramatic event like the one your country is
experiencing today, but I would like to send you the strength of our
solidarity," to help you "maintain the courage that we have seen as you
accompany the families who have lost loved ones in their pain."
General Insulza asks President Rousseff to "convey our sincere concern
and deepest sympathy to the parents, children and siblings who are
suffering the pain of such irreparable losses, and our wishes for a
speedy recovery to the injured."
The letter concludes by
reiterating the "full readiness" of the organization "to cooperate with
any effort that your government considers appropriate."
