Vice-President Kallas send condolences to Belgian State Secretary for Transport
Dear State Secretary Wathelet,
it was with shock and great sadness that I learned about the terrible coach accident in Switzerland last night in which so many people died. The shock is even greater as most of the victims are children.
Our thoughts are with the victims and their families. On my behalf and on behalf of the European Commission, let me extend our sincerest condolences and expressions of deepest sympathies to the victims of this tragic accident and to their families.
With my heartfelt sympathy,
Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the European Commission, Commissioner for Transport
