Armenia PM sends telegram of condolence to Angela Merkel

Armenia PM sends telegram of condolence to Angela Merkel
Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan today sent a telegram of condolence to Chancellor Angela Merkel on the occasion of the tragedy that took place in Hanau. The telegram particularly reads as follows: “Dear Mrs. Merkel, I was deeply saddened by the news about the tragedy that took place in Hanau. On behalf of the Armenian people and myself, I express condolence to and solidarity with you and the friendly people of Germany. I wish the victims’ relatives and close ones, patience and power of spirit, and I wish the injured speedy recovery.” As reported earlier, on February 20, an anonymous person attacked two hookah bars and a bookmaker office in Hanau. Based on the latest information, 9 are dead, and another 4 are wounded. President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier viewed the incident as “a terrorist act of violence”. The criminal left a video in which he stated that “there are underground military facilities in the US where children are tortured and killed” and called on the Americans to launch a fight against this.
