It was with great sadness that we learned about the tragic mass shooting in Orlando, Florida, which caused such a high toll of innocent victims and shocked all of us who share the values of democracy, peace promotion and respect for Human Rights.
On behalf of the Portuguese people and on my own, I want to convey you our national solidarity in the aftermath of such dramatic event, and ask you to accept my heartfelt condolences.
Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa
President of the Portuguese Republic
