YEREVAN, JULY 18, ARMENPRESS: The British Ambassador in Armenia, Thorda Abbott-Watt and the embassy staff thanked today in a message all those who have sent messages of sympathy and support following the bombings in London on 7 July. “They have valued deeply the kindness of their friends in Armenia,” the message said.
In response to the letter which President Kocharian sent to British Prime Minister Tony Blair on the day of the bombings, the Ambassador on Friday sent the President the following letter:
“Your Excellency I should like to thank you sincerely for your warm and timely message of sympathy to the Prime Minister following the bombing in London on 7 July. This is a sad time for all of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. But we deeply appreciate the fact that our friends share our sense of loss and outrage at this cowardly attack. We have been moved by the sympathy and kindness of Armenians of all walks of life, including those who left flowers and candles anonymously in front of the Embassy last week. Your support means a great deal to us in these troubled times. Thank you again.’
