My heart goes out to the people of Japan during this enormous tragedy.
Please know that America
will always stand by one of its greatest allies during this time of need.
Because of the strength and
wisdom of its people, we know that Japan will recover, and indeed will
emerge stronger than ever.
And as it recovers, the memory of those who have been lost will remain
in our hearts, and will serve
only to strengthen the relationship between our two countries. May God
bless the people of Japan.
