Dear Emomali Sharifovich,

We were very saddened by the news of heavy casualties as a result of avalanches that hit the Gorno-Badakhshan autonomous region.

On the occasion of this tragedy, on my own behalf and on behalf of the people of Azerbaijan, I extend my deep condolences to you, families and loved ones of those who died and the people of Tajikistan, and wish the injured a speedy recovery.

May Allah rest their souls in peace!

Ilham Aliyev

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
