Dear Congressman Eni,
No words can adequately express the sense of loss and anguish we feel at the devastation caused in American Samoa and Samoa by the recent tsunami. It is a terrible tragedy inflicted on innocent people.
On behalf of the Government and people of Fiji, I offer our deep condolence on the tragic loss of life. We hope and pray that the suffering will not be prolonged and that the people will be assisted to rebuild their lives in the shortest time possible.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the people of American Samoa and Samoa at this time.
