Statement of the OAS Secretary General

  February 27, 2010

"I deeply regret the grave tragedy that Chile lives today. Once again nature assails our weathered country, as it has happened so many times in our history. Nevertheless I am certain that the unity and strength of our people and our institutions will pull us through.

In the name of the Organization of American States and all its member countries I offer the Government of Chile and all Chileans a fraternal embrace of solidarity and hope. Chile can count on all the cooperation that the OAS can provide."
