In a signed letter addressed to Nepalese Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal, she said: “I am deeply saddened to learn about today's most tragic passenger plane crash in Pokhara, Nepal, carrying 72 people on board, mostly Nepalese and foreigners from a few other countries, which has reportedly caused the death of all.

“At this moment of most profound grief, our thoughts and prayers are with the affected families who lost their most beloved family members and friends and the mourning people of Nepal for their strength to bear this irreparable loss. We also offer our prayer for the eternal salvation of the departed souls,” she added in the letter. 

At least 67 people were confirmed dead Sunday when a plane with 72 on board crashed in Nepal, in the Himalayan country's deadliest aviation disaster in three decades.

The flight from Kathmandu slammed into a gorge and smashed to pieces between Pokhara's domestic and brand-new international airport on Sunday shortly before 11:00am (0515 GMT).
