President of the Democratic Party of Japan

Your Excellency:

The Council of Asian Liberals and Democrats (CALD), whose Executive Committee currently convenes in Bangkok, expresses its deepest condolences and sympathy to the people of Japan for the loss and massive damages caused by the powerful earthquake and tsunami last March 11.

As part of the liberal and democratic network, CALD stands by the Democratic Party of Japan in leading the rescue and relief efforts and in addressing the vital and crucial reconstruction challenges that confront the country.

While the days ahead would definitely be difficult, we in CALD trust that under your leadership, the people of Japan will find strength and embrace hope in the midst of this terrible global disaster.

Sincerely yours,

Dr. Rajiva Wijesinha, MP


Council of Asian Liberals & Democrats
