Republic of Uzbekistan

Dear Mr. President!

Let me express our gratitude on behalf of the residents of Fukushima prefecture, for the warm support and your letter of condolence on behalf of the people of Uzbekistan in connection with the case of an earthquake in eastern Japan.

The destructive earthquake and tsunami not only caused great damage to the prefecture, but also led to the accident at the plant “Fukushima-1” that resulted the evacuation of many residents in the area.

Currently, Japan is focusing its efforts on solving problems related to the accident at a nuclear power plant. All the inhabitants of our country united to eliminate the consequences of the unprecedented natural disaster and rebuilding shattered areas with cordial support of the Uzbek people.

We are determined to rebuild the country after a destroying catastrophe and renew the prefecture. We also endeavor to build a new, safe Fukushima.

We are hopeful of your warm support for the restoration of the prefecture and pray for a strong friendship between Uzbekistan and Japan.

Yours sincerely,

Yuhey Sato

Governor of Fukushima Prefecture.”
