Speaker's message of sympathy to the President of the French National Assembly

(unofficial translation)

M. Richard Ferrand
President of the National Assembly
French Republic

Esteemed Colleague,

It is with utter shock and great sadness that we learned of the massive fire at Notre-Dame, a symbol of your capital city of Paris.

On behalf of the House of Representatives of Japan, I offer the deepest sympathy to the people of France, and sincerely hope for the day when the cathedral is restored to its former beauty.

Yours sincerely,
Tadamori Oshima
House of Representatives
