The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, on behalf of the Venezuelan People and Government expresses his deepest condolences to the people and government of the Republic of the Philippines for the physical demise of former President Benigno Aquino III.
For the Bolivarian Government, it is painful that the sisterly Philippine nation has lost one of its most prominent political figures, who leaves a recognized legacy of leadership and reform, based on democratic values, honesty and economic prosperity.
Former President Benigno Aquino III dedicated, throughout his life, tireless efforts to the development of his country, leaving his mark in Philippine history. For these and many other reasons, Venezuela joins the world in paying tribute to this great man.
The People and Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela extend, likewise, their world and embrace of solidarity to his family and friends for such an irreparable loss.
