I would like to express my deepest condolences to many victims of the earthquake that occurred in Cianjur, West Java.

It is with great sadness that I recall the warm welcome I received from your government and people when I recently visited Indonesia to attend the G20 Bali Summit.

I would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families of the victims, as well as my prayers for the speedy recovery of those who were affected and the early restoration of the disaster-stricken areas. The Government of Japan will spare no effort to provide necessary assistance and cooperation.
