A media release from the Embassy of the United States Public Affairs Section and Ambassador John L. Estrada issued this morning

has extended condolences to those affected by the mass shooting in Orlando United States.

In the release, the Ambassador and the Embassy showed solidarity with the victims of the Orlando attack, as well as their families,

friends, and communities.

The Ambassador shared that he himself at one time lived in the Orlando area, so this hateful act hit close to home.

Estrada also disclosed that it was unconscionable that people could be targeted for mass murder because of their sexual preference,

race, religion or gender.

He noted that while the attack took place on American soil, terror still remained a global problem.

He said it had to be addressed with solidarity with the vast majority of people including Muslims around the world who condemn and

reject such barbarity.

Ambassador Estrada ended by expressing appreciation for the support shown both by President Anthony Carmona and Prime

Minister Dr. Keith Rowley.
