Condolences Regarding the Metro Accident in Moscow

As delivered by Ambassador Daniel B. Baer
to the Permanent Council
Vienna, July 15, 2014

I just wanted to offer the condolences of the United States of America to the people of the Russian Federation who were hurt — or worse — in a metro crash in Moscow this morning. I understand that rescue efforts are ongoing; of course, events like these are very scary and we certainly send our best wishes to those who were affected and hope for a speedy recovery.

Thank you, Madam Chair.
