President Isaac Herzog said Saturday night that he has sent a letter to his German counterpart, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, expressing condolences for Germans killed in the lethal flood that hit Western Europe, and offering any assistance Israel can provide.
“On behalf of the people of Israel, I sent a special letter of condolences and my deepest sympathy to German President Frank Walter Steinmeier and to the German people upon the recent disastrous floods, which resulted in the loss of hundreds of lives and thousands of still missing and displaced persons,” Herzog said.
“I agree with the president of Germany, that the challenge of global warming, which contributed to this calamity, requires us all to make a special effort. I stated that we would be willing to help in any way,” he added. (TOI/VFI News)
