Condolences for Japan

The Green Party has extended its condolences to the people of Japan and Sendai and offers support for our Government's emergency response.

"Our heartfelt sympathies go out to the Japanese for the devastation and loss of life following the earthquake and tsunami," Green Party Co-leader Metiria Turei said today.

"Our thoughts and prayers are also with all those families and friends here in New Zealand.

"We will do everything to support the Japanese community here through this difficult time.

"The people of Japan gave us great support at our time of need. We will reciprocate," said Mrs Turei.

"And to the people of Sendai especially, all of New Zealand stands with you. Kia kaha."
