Official Statement to the Government of the United States of America
The Federation of St Kitts and Nevis stands unequivocally in its condemnation of the storming of the United States Consulate in Benghazi, Libya by violent and misguided protesters who demonstrated callous and wanton disregard for human life. In equal measure, St Kitts and Nevis deeply regrets the resulting loss of life and the destruction of property.
The Federation of St Kitts and Nevis stands in solidarity with the Government and people of the United States of America on this solemn occasion, and mourns with them the loss of United States Ambassador to Libya, His Excellency Christopher Stevens, and three U.S. government officers.
Expressions of deepest condolences are extended to the families, friends and loved ones of these departed citizens of the United States of America who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to their beloved country.
May their souls rest in eternal peace.
