UN voices sorrow and pledges assistance after deadly quake and tsunami hit Japan


In the hours after a
devastating earthquake and tsunami hit
Japan Friday, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon spoke out, voicing his solidarity
with the country. “The world is shocked
and saddened by the images coming from
Japan this morning. On behalf of the
United Nations, I want to express my
deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to the Japanese people
and government. And most especially those
who lost family and friends in the earthquake and
subsequent tsunami. Japan is one of the
most generous and strongest
benefactors coming to the assistance of
those in need the world over. In their spirit, the
United Nations stands by the
people of Japan and we will do anything
and everything we can at this very difficult time.” For more UN videos visit:
