Dear Mr. President,

It is with great sadness that I heard about the passing away of Senator
Edward Kennedy. With his disappearance the United States of America
have not only lost an eminent senator but also a statesman who has
always been greatly respected throughout the world.

I have had the honour and the privilege of meeting Senator Kennedy
several times, and the interesting and edifying discussions I have had
with him have left an indelible mark on my mind. I will always remember
him as a man of strong political convictions, values and character whose
work over the years has been of inestimable importance for the
advancement of social justice and peace both within the United States
and throughout the world.

Please receive, on behalf of the Government of the Grand-Duchy of
Luxembourg and in my very personal name, my most heartfelt
condolences. I would also like to express my deepest sympathy to the
Kennedy family.

                                            Yours very respectfully,

                                             Jean-Claude Juncker
                                                Prime Minister

The President
The White House
Washington, DC 20500
