Dear Mrs Prime Minister,

We were deeply saddened by the news of heavy casualties and injuries as a result of an armed attack at the mosques in the city of Christchurch.

We are extremely outraged by this ruthless terror act, and resolutely support the international community`s efforts against all forms and manifestations of terrorism.

Over this horrible incident, on behalf of the people of Azerbaijan and on my own behalf, I extend my deepest condolences to you, the bereaved families and loved ones of those who were killed and the whole people of New Zealand, and wish the injured the swiftest possible recovery.

Ilham Aliyev

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
