“On behalf of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), I wish to express deepest sympathy to the Government and People of Mexico in the face of the tragic loss of life, widespread destruction and continuing trauma and suffering wrought by the devastating earthquake of 19 September 2017 in Mexico. This tragedy is all the more unfortunate as it comes at a time when Mexico is still in the process of recovering from the earthquake of 7 September 2017.
The Caribbean Community conveys its heartfelt condolences to the families of those who have lost lives and to the families of the missing. The Community also sympathises with those displaced by the damage caused by the earthquake and hopes that critical infrastructure will be restored in swift time.
CARICOM joins the international community in expressing its solidarity with the Government and People of Mexico in this time of national distress and affirms its hope and confidence that the resilient People of Mexico will recover and rebuild in the shortest time”.
