DEAR MR NARESH GUJRAL AND ALL OTHER MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY

HAVING JUST LEARNED ABOUT THE TERRIBLE LOSS, I HASTEN TO OFFER MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY AND CONDOLENCES.

YOUR FATHER WHOM I KNEW PERSONALLY FOR SEVERAL DECADES WAS GREATLY ADMIRED BY HIS RUSSIAN FRIENDS. IT IS WITH EMOTIONAL WARMTH THAT I RECALL OUR CORDIAL MEETINGS AND THOUGHTFUL DISCUSSIONS DURING HIS AMBASSADORSHIP IN MOSCOW AND FRUITFUL INTERACTION WHEN HE WAS INDIA’S TOP DIPLOMAT AND LATER PRIME MINISTER. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOUR FATHER’S AFFABLE PERSONALITY, UNFLAGGING OPTIMISM, INTELLECTUAL FINESSE AND GREAT INTEGRITY. MY COUNTRY WILL MISS AN ARDENT ADVOCATE OF RUSSIAN-INDIAN AMITY. IT MAKES FOR ME AND MY COMPATRIOTS THIS IRREPARABLE LOSS MUCH MORE GRIEVOUS.

I MOURN TOGETHER WITH YOU AND YOUR COUNTRY AT THIS BEREAVEMENT.

MAY YOUR FATHER’S SOUL REST IN PEACE.

 

MOSCOW, NOVEMBER 30, 2012

YOURS IN SORROW,

 

EVGENY PRIMAKOV
