Dear President Jokowi,

I was shocked and saddened by the news of the bomb attacks in the vicinity of three churches in Surabaya on 13 May 2018. The attacks claimed innocent lives, and left many injured.

On behalf of the Government of Singapore, I offer our deepest condolences to the bereaved families of the victims, and wish the injured a swift recovery.

Singapore strongly condemns such senseless and callous acts of violence against civilians at places of worship. I am confident that the Indonesian Government will be able to deal with the situation decisively. Singapore stands ready to work with Indonesia to bring those responsible for such reprehensible acts of violence to justice. I am confident that the unity and resolve of the Indonesian people will not waver during this difficult time.

             
Yours sincerely,

LEE HSIEN LOONG

 

His Excellency Joko Widodo
President
Republic of Indonesia
