Kondolanse fra Hans Majestet Kongen til Israels president i anledning tidligere president og fredsprisvinner Shimon Peres' bortgang.
HE Mr. Reuven Rivlin
President of the State of Israel,
The Residence of the President,
I was saddened by hearing the news that former prime minister, president and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Shimon Peres, has died.
Mr. Peres, who I had the opportunity of meeting myself, had an important role in the struggle for peace. On this sad occasion, we should all be thankful for his efforts and his long-lasting service as an Israeli Statesman.
On behalf of myself and the people of Norway, I extend my condolences to you, and would ask you to convey my condolences and deepest sympathy to his family in their bereavement, and to the people of Israel.
