We, the Foreign Ministers of Mexico, Indonesia, Republic of Korea, and Turkey (members of MIKTA) are deeply saddened that the continuing bushfires in Australia have been causing enormous damage across the country, including the loss of many lives.

We extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones, and wish a prompt recovery to all who have been affected.

Sincerely hoping that the bushfires will soon be brought under control, we stand in full solidarity with the Government and the people of Australia in their efforts to tackle this unprecedented challenge.
