We were saddened to learn about the loss of so many lives in the plane crash in the Java Sea waters in Indonesia earlier today.
Our condolences go to the people of Indonesia, to the countries’ authorities, and particularly to the families of the victims and their loved ones.
EU High Representative/Vice President Federica Mogherini has already been in touch with the Foreign Minister of Indonesia, Retno Marsudi. We stand by the country at this difficult time.
