Dear Mr. President,

Dear brother,

I have been deeply saddened by the news of numerous casualties in the aftermath of an explosion at a coal mine in the province of Manisa.

Sharing in your sorrow over the tragedy, I would like to express my deepest condolences to you, the families and friends of the victims and all the people of Turkey myself personally and on behalf of the Azerbaijani people and wish a speedy recovery to the wounded.

May Allah rest their souls in peace!
