Message of condolences of Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in occasion of the Orlando massacre

On behalf of the Italian Government and People, I wish to express to the President of the United States, Barack Obama, our solidarity and deep condolences for the horrendous massacre carried out in Orlando. We stand close to the American People and to the families of the many innocent victims. This terrorist act, drenched in intolerable homophobic hatred, reinforces the commitment of our democratic societies to tackle without hesitation any attack to our values ​​of respect for human life and freedom of our citizens. We embrace our American brothers and sisters in this moment of absolute pain.
