Condolences of the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic on the death of Ariel Sharon

Prime minister of the Czech Republic Jiří Rusnok has sent a letter of condolence to the Prime Minister of the State of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu.

Your Excellency,

With deep sorrow I received the news of the decease of Mr Ariel Sharon, former Prime Minister of the State of Israel. His long-lasting fight for life is over and now his soul is resting in peace.

With his passing away the State of Israel has lost not only a remarkable statesman who devoted his life to the service to his nation, but also a true military strategist, a war hero who significantly contributed to the independence of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.

Ariel Sharon left a significant imprint on the history of your nation. In peaceful as well as in war times, for political leaders of the democratic world facing difficult decisions he will remain an enduring inspiration.

Your Excellency, allow me to express to you my deepest condolences on behalf of myself as well as the Government of the Czech Republic. Please convey my sympathies also to Mr. Sharon´s family.

Respectfully yours,

Jiří Rusnok
Prime Minister of the Czech Republic
