Ambassador Manizha Bakhtari expresses her condolences for the loss of a Danish soldier in the Helmand province.
I wish to express my deepest condolences to the family and friends of the Danish soldier that lost his life in a roadside explosion during a patrol in southern Afghanistan. The incident happened Sunday morning, 10 July 2011, west of a Danish base in Helmand Province.
The people of Afghanistan are grateful towards the people of Denmark for their generous support to Afghanistan and for their commitment to the cause of peace and development. The sacrifice offered by the Danish soldier exemplifies this deep commitment. We also send our deepest condolences to the Danish people.
