President of the Republic of Azerbaijan offered condolences to the Emperor of Japan
We were deeply saddened by the news of a heavy loss of life and large-scale destruction as a result of earthquakes that hit your country.
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 whole people of Japan, and wish those injured the swiftest possible recovery.
