The Right Honourable Julie Payette, C.C., C.M.M., C.O.M., C.Q., C.D.
Governor General of Canada
Budapest, 9 January 2020
I was deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic plane crash which occurred in the early morning hours on the 8th of January near Tehran and demanded the lives of all passengers and crew on board, among them many Canadian citizens.
On behalf of the people of Hungary and that of my own, I would like to express my deepest condolences to the families of the victims as well as to confirm the sincere solidarity we feel with the people of Canada in these difficult times of grief.
Excellency, please accept the assurances of my highest consideration.
President of the Republic
