Nursultan Nazarbayev has sent U.S. President Barack Obama a telegram with condolences over the devastating tornado in Oklahoma, Tengrinews.kz reports citing Kazakhstan President’s official website.
Nazarbayev said that it was with deep sorrow that he took the news of dozens of victims of the tornado. “In this difficult time I express condolences to the families of the victims on behalf of the Kazakhstan people and myself and wish good health to all the injured,” the telegram writes.
The devastating tornado hit Oklahoma on May 20. Moore town was practically wiped off the map. The disaster torn down blocks of homes and at least two schools and left at least 51 people, including 7 children, dead.
