Statement by the U.S. Ambassador Laura Dogu on the Assassination of Former Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo

I am truly saddened to hear of the tragic assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo. He was an exemplary public servant who dedicated his life to the service of his people. He championed the alliance between our two countries and was a true friend to the United States. I have conveyed our condolences to the Japanese Ambassador to Honduras Nakahara Jun.
