I am deeply saddened by the crash of a Greek fighter jet at the Los Llanos base in Spain, which has caused many casualties.
This is a tragedy which affects the whole NATO family. I express my heartfelt condolences to the loved ones and the nations of those who lost their lives, and I wish a speedy recovery to the injured.
