NSW Premier Mike Baird and Minister for Multiculturalism John Ajaka expressed their condolences to the Nepalese Government following the earthquake that devastated Nepal on Saturday.

“On behalf of the NSW Government, I would like to send my deepest sympathies to the people of Nepal as the painstaking search for survivors continues,”  Baird said.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who have lost loved ones in the earthquake, as well as the thousands of families still waiting for news.”

“Australians have a great affinity with the people of Nepal and our thoughts are with the state’s Nepalese community of about 16,000, many of whom are also devastated by this tragedy.”

Ajaka said the NSW Government has met with the Honorary Consul-General of Nepal to express condolences to the people of Nepal.

“I have today met with the Honorary Consul-General of Nepal His Excellency Deepak Khadka to express our sympathies to the people of Nepal and the Nepalese community of NSW,”  Ajaka said.

“I have advised His Excellency that Multicultural NSW has been directed to provide any assistance it can to NSW residents trying to make contact with family members in Nepal.”

“I would urge anyone concerned about the welfare of a loved one in Nepal to try to contact them directly. If they are unable to do so, they should call the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s 24-hour Consular Emergency Centre on (02) 6261-3305, or if in Australia on 1300 555 135.”
