Condolences for the Victims of the Orlando Shooting

“I am deeply moved by the messages of support and solidarity sent on behalf of the Swedish people by His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf, Prime Minister Löfven, and Foreign Minister Wallström. In the aftermath of such a horrific tragedy, we must hold dear the values that give us strength. As President Obama stated, in the face of hate and violence, we will love one another. We will not give in to fear or turn against each other.

Now is the time for mourning, but it is also the time to stand firm against these hateful acts. We will draw strength from the values that we share with Sweden and continue to work together to defend those values around the world.” – U.S. Ambassador to Sweden, Azita Raji

The Embassy has created an online condolence book that can be found on our Facebook page.
